Palermo’s season just can’t take off, having returned to the limits of the playout area after the draws with Como and Spal.
Cagliari is not doing much better, two points more and a success found at home after several weeks of abstinence. Despite this, the playoffs are two lengths away.
A challenge between disappointed with an eye to the playoff area, at least for Cagliari. However, he makes a tremendous effort away from home, and he might not break it even this time.
Prediction: no goal + 1x + home 1-3 Result: 1-0.

Prediction guide: how do the two formations arrive?
Benevento’s success had given hope for a change of direction, and instead Palermo kept on just enough scores to save themselves without a play-off.
Goals are above all missing, just 16 despite Brunori’s contribution, 8 goals and 3 assists. In short, apart from the Italian-Brazilian in front, the rosanero are evanescent.
Barbera was not too decisive in this sense: 3 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats.
Finally the alarm clock for Cagliari? The 3-2 home win against Perugia, also throwing a two-goal lead, put an end to a good 7 games without success and with five points won.
Expectations at the beginning of the season were very different, but the Sardinians are disappointing a bit both in the goal area, because 20 goals with their firepower are few, and because the defense can’t stay 90 minutes without exposing the flank once .
🆚 Last Previous: Cagliari-Palermo 2-1 (12-8-2018)
In the last ten, five have gone to the Cagliari street while three have gone to Palermo, even if the Sardinians have only violated Barbera once. Only twice did the match end in a no goal, while on 7 occasions the over.
