Monday night's live Serie A clash could prove an entertaining affair.
Palermo v Torino - Monday 19:45, BT Sport 1
After winning three of their last four games to avoid the drop last term, Palermo look set to have another relegation battle on their hands as they’ve won just once so far this season to leave themselves down in 17th ahead of this round of fixtures. Torino, meanwhile, have had a much better start with 11 points from their seven games as they look to make it three top half finishes in the last four seasons.
Palermo have lost and failed to score in all three of their home games so far but they’ve had some tricky fixtures to negotiate as they’ve already hosted Napoli, Sassuolo and Juve, only losing 1-0 against both the latter two. However, when hosting sides between 7th and 12th they were W0-D2-L4 last term, despite managing to score in four of these games.
Torino have won their last two and are unbeaten in their last four, but they’ve picked up just one point from their three road games so far and could only draw 0-0 at struggling Pescara in their last away match. When travelling to bottom-six sides they’re W3-D3-L1 since the start of last season in games that have tended to be high-scoring as both teams netted in six of these and four saw more than three goals. With that in mind, we’re backing Palermo to find the net for the first time this season in front of their own fans and are siding with both teams to score, while we’re also going to back Over 3.5 Goals.
