Juventus vs. Palermo Betting Tips
Palermo will travel to Torino on Friday for their Matchday 25 clash, hoping to cause an upset and snatch any points at table leaders. However, this will be an extremely difficult task for the league strugglers and we find it hard backing against the home side at Juventus Stadium.
Juventus have been in a superior home form founding their success both in Serie A and UEFA competitions on it, with an unbeaten streak going back as far as August 2015. Although we’ve seen some surprising snatches there, it’s a longshot to assume Rosanero can take anything away from this fixture and backing a home win at does seem like buying money at 1/7 with bet365
The visitors have earned just 14 points in 24 matches this season as they sit in the relegation zone as one of the prime favourites for relegation. Their win over Crotone (1-0) earlier this month has made it just three wins and five draws, as they’ve suffered 16 losses in the process! Palermo have looked somewhat better on the road, though, but we don’t feel they can make their away day to Juventus count in their struggles to escape the red zone.
Bianconeri, by contrast, have won all 12 home games in Serie A this season bagging 30 goals and conceding just six (being the league’s best defensive line in front of the home fans), so we do feel we’re in for a similar display here although we might see a rotated line-up on the day. Backing Juventus to keep a clean sheet thus looks a very good shot at 8/13 with Ladbrokes
, and we’ve seen it attract a few value-seekers already.
Juventus vs. Palermo Stats
Palermo have last beaten Juventus back in 2011 (2-1) and Bianconeri have earned nine consecutive wins since then. They have also kept a clean sheet in their last six head-to-head encounters, with a 0-1 win in their last matchup in September 2016.
They have been more confident in front of the home crowd, and we’ll now go for a 2-0 home win - a longshot which can now be backed at 5/1 with William Hill
and certainly looks a solid choice in the market with their current spells of form.
