Reason For Lazio VS Palermo Betting Tips

Lazio’s season is in danger of unravelling, having won just one of their last five matches. This weekend’s visit of Palermo seems like a perfect opportunity to end that poor run, yet the hosts still have some concerns to iron out. They don’t have much to drive for, having slipped nine points off the Champions League spots. They’re on course to secure a place in the Europa League, but there’s little to fear for the Biancocelesti on that front.

Palermo are in a similar position, the only difference being that their campaign has been a disaster. The visitors are second from bottom in the table, 10 points adrift from safety. They’ve got 18 points left to play for, but just 16 on the board. That dismal total isn’t likely to change when they visit Lazio, as they take a woeful defensive record to the Stadio Olimpico.

Palermo have one away clean sheet all season, conceding a goal in their last 13 Serie A trips. While they have conceded far too many overall, they’ve been particularly bad on their travels. The Rosanero have conceded 57% of their league goals on the road, averaging 2/38 goals against them per game. That should see the hosts get plenty of joy going forward, especially with Palermo conceding at least three times in their last four away outings.

However, the Rosanero do have a decent attacking record. They’ve scored in 88% of their trips this term, which should see them trouble Lazio here. The hosts have fallen apart at the back, having failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four matches. The Biancocelesti have shipped eight goals in their last four, which has been a huge part of their collapse in form.

With little to focus on for the hosts, we can see them leaving more gaps at the back. Palermo have scored in five of their last six matches on the road, and that’s a tally they can add to on Sunday. The Rosanero have scored in their previous two away trips to Lazio, and the strugglers come in to this match having seen both teams score in 81% of their away games. We’re backing BTTS once again for Palermo, which seems well priced at evens with bet365.

Head To Head
