Pescara host Palermo in the most insignificant match of the weekend as both opponents have already been relegated.

Pescara have already been relegated from the Serie A after having one of the most underwhelming campaigns in the Italian top flight in recent seasons.

They managed to collect just 14 points from 36 league games, points that came from just 2 wins and 8 draws.

They also have the worst goal difference in the league after scoring 33 and conceding 79.

They have been terrible lately losing all 5 of their last 5 league games.

Playing at home does not seem to make any difference in their result as they have lost their last 3 home games in the league.

Palermo have also had a very underwhelming season as they sit just one place above their hosts in this match.

They are currently 19th in the league table after collecting just 23 points all season long.

They have managed to pick up some form recently with 2 wins and no losses from their last 3 league games.

Their recent away form is terrible – they have 6 losses in their last six away games in the league but managed to draw their last game.

This game offers them an opportunity to build on that performance at Chievo.

Bookmakers make Pescara slight favourites at home in this tie as odds of 2.30 however it will take some bravery to back either of these sides given their performance this season and with there be absolutely nothing to play for in this match.

Pescara (probable): Fiorilli; Zampano, Bovo, Campagnaro, Biraghi; Coulibaly, Muntari, Memushaj; Mitrita, Bahebeck, Caprari

Suspended: Benali

Palermo (probable): Fulignati; Cionek, Goldaniga, Andelkovic; Rispoli, Bruno Henrique, Jajalo, Chochev, Aleesami; Diamanti, Nestorovski

Suspended: None
