Rock bottom Palermo have made their worst Serie A start since their promotion eight years ago and welcome fellow strugglers Chievo Verona to Sicily. If this isn't a six pointer then I don't know what is.
Not too long ago, the home side was jockeying for European positions. Now, they've been sucked into the relegation mire. How times have changed!
Gian Piero Gasperini is the latest Coach through the Renzo Barbera revolving door. Since replacing Giuseppe Sannino, the former Genoa and Inter boss has seen his side go down to a pair of 1-0 defeats. In both games, the goals have come in the last five minutes.
While Gasperini has made some progress in reducing the goals against column - the club conceded seven in three games under Sannino, at the other end, the club have forgotten how to score.
The Sicilians have a solitary goal to their name so far, which is a far cry from the thrilling 4-4 draw both sides played out towards the end of last season.
Chievo haven't had much to cheer about either. Since an opening day 2-0 victory over Bologna, the Flying Donkeys have lost four on the bounce, registering just one goal and shipping nine.
Chievo have pulled off escape attempts that David Blaine would be proud of before. If results don't turn around quick smart, they may need to pull something similar out of their bag of tricks.
