Palermo vs Frosinone Prediction & Betting tips
A day before the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russia in the Italian Serie B, the playoff first leg for promotion to the top division of the country. With Palermo and Frosinone, the third and fourth places in the regular season have made it to the final. So the question will be who will master the leap into Serie A next to Master Empoli and Parma? Since a forecast is extremely difficult due to the importance of these two games, we decided on a tip for the “Both teams to score”.
Especially since the unterklassige Italian football is often characterized by stable defensive lines and uninspired offensives, the tendency is a match with few hits. However, as the under 2.5 odds are only up to a meager 1.57, our choice is that both teams will not score. In general, in a first leg of the promotion no great risk will be taken, which is why the betting odds for corresponding bets are 1.80 and are played by us with four units.
Just last season, US Palermo had to take the bitter gait in the second division. With only 26 points from 38 games in Serie A, the “Rosanero” took the penultimate place and dismounted. Just over a year later, the “elevator team” from the Sicilian capital has again the chance to return to the upper house. Although it was enough for Palermo in normal time only to fourth place, but entitled this rank to participate in the playoffs. There it got the team of coach Roberto Stellone in the semifinals with the trained by Filippo Inzaghi Venezia to do. After a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Venice, a narrow 1-0 home win in the return leg at the weekend was enough to qualify for the final. There, Palermo enjoys next Wednesday in the first leg first home.
It will be particularly important from the point of view of the former European Cup player to keep the back zero. A lucky punch in the form of a 1-0 success would be the maximum of the pink-black dreams, but even with a 0: 0 could probably live the Stellone-Eleven, although Frosinone would rise in case of a tie for a return match. Unlike in the European competitions, where the away goals rule applies, here has the team advantages, which was better placed in the regular season. Over the entire season, Palermo, with 39 goals conceded in 42 games one of the best defenses in the league. At home, the former first division club conceded only 16 goals. In just five of the last eight home games, not both teams scored. The latest match against Frosinone ended in front of their own fans by the way with 1: 0.
Once Frosinone Calcio made a name for itself in Italian football, by within two years of the march from the third division into Serie A succeeded. Already in the first season in the upper house (2015/2016), however, the club from the almost 50,000 inhabitants city from the Lazio region had to cope with the descent again. In the past season 16/17 almost the direct re-emergence would have succeeded, but you had to let the point-matched Hellas Verona due to the lost direct comparison the lead in second place. Frosinone had in the playoffs and failed in the semi-final after a 0-0 in the first leg in Carpi by a 0-1 home defeat in the second leg. One year ago, high-scoring games in the Serie B promotion round were in short supply.
In the current season, repeated the sad fate of Frosinone. Once again, coach Moreno Longo’s team took third place and were tied to rank two (Parma). This time, however, Frosinone was able to prevail in the semifinals of the playoff against Cittadella. However, the two matches could hardly have been much narrower. Both the first leg and the second leg ended 1-1, so that Frosinone ultimately benefited from the better position after 42 games. With 25 goals in 21 away games Longo was by no means an offensive machine. Another important argument for our tip is the fact that Frosinone’s last eight outings have failed to score both goals six times. Statistically, our recommendation can definitely be justified.
