Bari vs Palmero Predictions and Free Betting Tips

Enjoy the following Bari vs Palmero betting tips.

1-1 Draw

Neither side will want to lose their opening game of the season and with both sharing the points last year, it looks likely these will do so once again. Palermo did win the reverse tie 1-0, but that was thanks to a 82nd minute winner in what was an edgy, tight match.

Last season Bari missed out on promotion when losing the play-offs, while Palermo missed out on the play offs altogether on goal difference. With both teams expected to compete towards the top end of the table, they should cancel each other out.

Both Teams To Score

Despite a close encounter expected, both teams are capable of finding the net – as they did last year. Last year, Bari scored 58 league goals, the second highest in Serie B, while Palermo found the back of the net 48 times themselves. Just because a tight affair is anticipated, it doesn’t mean neither will fail to score in this Serie B opener.

Under 2.5 Goals

The final selection confirms the first one, but with a draw likely to happen, it doesn’t appear as though it’ll be 2-2 or 3-3. Bari only conceded 19 goals at home last year, which is why they finished so high up the table. If either Bari or Palermo are to nick a result late on as we saw last year, we should see this selection land comfortably.

Bari vs Palermo Match Preview, Analysis, and Latest Team News


Bari head into their first Serie B match of the season having fallen to a 3-0 loss to Parma in the cup. Two early goals caught them out and hopefully they’ve learnt plenty from their first half performance to take into this encounter. The good news is they head into the match with no fresh injury concerns, and a previous 5-0 win over Delfino Curi Pescara in a friendly will give them confidence in front of goal.


Palermo also head into this match off the back of a defeat in the Coppa Italia. They managed to take Serie A side Cagliari to extra time but that was the end of the road for them. Despite scoring in the 121st minute and the match seemingly heading towards penalties, a lack of concentration saw Cagliari find the back of the net in the 123rd minute in extra time. They’ll know to improve their concentration levels ahead of their Serie B opener.
