Just one more game left on the calendar for 2012, a year that should quickly be forgotten for the Rosanero. Unfortunately, the match comes against the Viola, one of the surprises of the season. Under Montella and a whole host of new talent, Fiorentina have high aspirations for the year, aiming at a spot in Europe after a couple years adrift. If anything, this sort of turnaround can give Palermo some hope for the coming years; however, Palermo must focus on the present, and that means trying to get the full three points no matter how challenging that may be.
It’s hard to watch a team play so well and have so little to show for it. Many would say Palermo deserved more after the positive matches against Inter, Juventus and Udinese; yet, all they have is one point from those three games. Fiorentina seems to be the last of this brutal stretch of games but it is hardly easy against such a talented opponent. In addition, Gasperini will have to do without the resurgent Ilicic and the steady Von Bergen, so others will be required to step up and fill the gaps left by those two. The game is at the Renzo Barbera and Palermo will have the support of the home crowd. Let’s see what they can do with that.
