Preview : Palermo - Genoa
Palermo are in a cricis due bad results. Actually Palermo president Zamparini should blame himself for this cricis with his coach decisions and his attitude on the coaches.
Palermo have sacked Mangia and signed with Mutti (which coach has no serious career) and now Zamparini complaining that he's regret of sacking Mangia.
Palermo are having seven games winless streak. Have lost 5 of them and drew two.
In this week Palermo have signed with midfielder Donati and goalkeeper Viviano, signing Viviano is a positive move for Palermo because they didn't have any proper goalkeeper since Sirigu's departure.
Bortolo Mutti is known as an offensive minded coach and he will remain 4-3-1-2 formation against Genoa.
Palermo will miss defender Pisano , striker Hernandez and offensive midfielder Zahavi.
Palermo still have enough and quality offensive fire-power with such players as Miccoli , Ilicic , Pinilla and new comer Argentinean Vasquez.
Mutti's job isn't secure anymore and Palermo are nervous and eager to win a game after having a seven games win-less streak.
Palermo's weakest part is their defense. They still don't have proper defenders , Munoz - Silvestre and Mantovani are Serie B level defenders and Palermo president never cared to buy some new decent defenders after losing Cassani and Bovo.
Palermo (probable) 4-3-1-2 : Viviano; Munoz, Silvestre, Mantovani, Balzaretti; Migliaccio, Donati, Barreto; Ilicic; Miccoli,Pinilla
After following bad results , Genoa rid of coach Malesani and signed Pasquale Marino. On the last weekend Genoa played a ''huge'' 2nd half against Udinese (which team is in the Scudetto race and have one of the best defensive records of Serie A) and managed to win 3-2.
Genoa's new transfers Gilardino and Biondini showed great performances. Genoa were having big scoring problems and they have signed with Sculli (Lazio) and Alberto Gilardino (Fiorentina) and Gilardino's partnership to Palacio brought them a great victory against Udinese.
Genoa played a Cup game against Inter three days ago but Genoa played with the reserve team. Coach Marino's main target is Palermo game and he wants to improve with his new formation and team with getting more positive results and remain same performance which they have showed against Udinese.
Genoa will play with 4-3-3 formation. Up-front finally contains quality after long years. Gilardino , Palacio & Sculli trio will start together up front.
Genoa have important missings on their Sicily trip. Genoa will miss 4 regular defenders , we can say whole defense line. Bovo , Kaladze , Dainelli and Antonelli. Hard-worker midfielder Rossi is suspended. Portuguese international midfielder Veloso isn't fit and another midfielder Kevin Constant are injured.
Seymour - Kucka and Biondini will start on the midfield. Defense is still a problem with numerous absences of the defenders. Marino will give chance to midfielder Mesto as a RB and young defender Samprisi in first eleven.
Genoa were missing same defenders at the last weekend and gave a lot of positions to Udinese , goalkeeper Frey had an excellent game , he had conceded two goals but saved more than five %100 goal chances.
Genoa (probable) : 4-3-3 : Frey; Mesto, Granqvist, Moretti, Sampirisi ; Biondini, Seymour, Kucka; Palacio, Gilardino, Sculli
Palermo will be eager to get all three points to stop their terrible run and will play an offensive game. On the other hand Genoa have focused in Palermo game , even Marino didn't risk his regular players against Inter at Coppa Italia game.
The both teams will play on same purpose ; three points.
Two offensive minded teams and defensive issues. Palermo's weak defense and Genoa's absences on the defence line.
Offensive performances will name a winner here , expectations on a very open game with a lot of goal positions and plenty of goals in Renzo Barbera.
