Only one game remains before the terrible 2011/12 season officially comes to a close. This game means nothing to Palermo, however Genoa are fighting for Serie A survival. The match will be played behind closed doors after the fiasco that occurred several weeks ago when Genoa ultras caused the match with Siena to be stopped.
The Rosanero will be missing a lot of players. Miccoli, who could very well have played his last game with Palermo last week, picked up an injury during training on Friday and will miss the game. Joining him are a whole host of other key players: Donati (flu), Balzaretti (injury), Ilicic (injury), Silvestre (suspension), Acquah (injury) and Della Rocca (injury).
Labrin – Milanovic – Mantovani
Pisano – Migliaccio – Barreto – Bertolo – Aguirregaray
Vazquez – Budan
Bench: Brichetto; Munoz; Bacinovic, Lores Varela, Zahavi; Abel Hernandez, Mehmeti
For a team fighting for their existence in the top flight, this lineup seems pretty favorable for their odds. Add to the mix that Palermo have only won once away from the Barbera all year long, and it looks like Genoa can count themselves among the teams who will play in Serie A next year. Nevertheless, the game will be played out and hopefully those who are “trying out” for next season put on a good show.
SIAMO TERRONI E CE NE VANTIAMOOOOO!!!!!!
