Palermo’s key to victory over Modena was their speed on the counterattack. They fully exploited their advantage in terms of pace, and one such situation led to the game-changing incident: Oukhadda’s red card for stopping Di Francesco’s run towards goal. This was the fourth red card in favor of Palermo this season, and the second for a similar intervention. In previous matches, they were able to capitalize on the numerical advantage, except for the game against San Nicola where they drew 0-0. Notably, Palermo has yet to receive a red card themselves, partly due to their organized defensive play and players avoiding reckless challenges. Last season, Palermo had already received three red cards by this point, but they managed to improve their discipline. In terms of red cards in their favor, they had received two in the first eight games, and by the end of the season, it totaled five. With their skillful players, Palermo has the potential to benefit from more red cards this season.
