Europa League - Group F. In Italy, Palermo host Sparta Prague.
Home team have only 3 points gained so far in this competition and Sparta are placed on second position wit 7 points just behind CSKA (12 pts).
Palermo have to win this game to make their chances alive to advance but in fact even the victory here does not guarantee anything. They play open footbal - atacking but not defending good in the same time. No doubt they score a lot in serie A. And yes, this Europa League competition is definitely less important to them than their domestic league. So are they motivated enough to win this game?
Moreover, not the strongest team will probably be fielded today. That's why I see value in backing Sparta on +1 handicap here. They will stick to defending today as one poit here would be enough for them. Losing this one means they have to travel to Moscow in the last round and then everything might be decided there with really strong opponent. Palermo will be ending this competition against weak Lausanne.
To sum up, Sparta to get a point here in a match that means not too much to Palermo, is my call here. Good luck!
