Palermo shouldn't have enough to trouble in-form Roma on Sunday night, live on BT Sport.
Roma v Palermo - Sunday 19:45, BT Sport Europe
Impressive wins at home to Inter and at Napoli in their last two games has seen Roma climb up to 2nd and they’ve been in good scoring form, with Edin Dzeko having netted seven times already. Palermo, on the other hand, look set for another relegation battle as they’ve won just once so far to leave themselves down in 17th.
Roma have now won their last seven at home, scoring 20 goals in the process, while their overall record at the Stadio Olimpico is W17-D5-L1 since the start of last term. When hosting bottom-six sides they’re W8-D1-L0 in that period as they led at the break in six of these games, with four of their victories by more than three goals.
Palermo have managed just five goals this term and since Roma have kept clean sheets in four of their last six at home, we’re backing them to win to nil. Roma won this fixture 5-0 last term and since they’re scoring so freely at the moment, we’re also going to back them to cover the -3 handicap at 5.0.
