Palermo – Ascoli

Palermo hosts Ascoli in a match from the 28th round of the Italian Serie B. Let’s have a look at this clash and we will give you our soccer betting tips for today for it.

Palermo continues the fight to win a promotion to the Serie A. Right now the Sicilians are 3rd in the Serie B standings with 44 points, trailing on 5 points behind the 2nd Frosinone. This means that if Palermo finish 3rd (or less) in the Serie B standings, they will have to play in the promotion playoffs against other teams.

Of course, they’d like to finish in the Top 2 and avoid this part, but 5 points behind Frosinone is a pretty serious distance.

Palermo’s record so far in the season talks for an inconsistency – 11 wins, 11 draws and 5 losses. But their real inconsistency can be seen in their last five games in the league – three losses, one draw and just one win. Not too while ago Palermo were leading the table, but now they are third because of their weak form in the last month.

In their last game Bruno Tedino’s boys made a dissapointing 0-0 draw against Pro Vercelli – a team that is in the relegation zone of the Serie B. For the last time Palermo won against Brescia at the end of January.

Meanwhile Ascoli are also positioned in the relegation zone of the Serie B. They are currently 21th in the league standings with just 26 points won so far. In same time Ascoli are just two points behind the 19th Cesena and the relegation playoff zone, so they still have some hopes for survival in the end of the season. But they surely need points – as much as they can win.
