Palermo: canceled home advantage, same results at home and away

Explain to me the following article in brief:

At Palermo, playing at home or away doesn’t make a difference. Not only because the fans always show up and fill the away sections throughout Italy. The numbers on the field confirm this once again. The team, coached by Eugenio Corini, has earned 25 points at home and 24 away. In 15 games played at the Renzo Barbera, the team achieved 8 wins, 1 draw, and 6 losses, while away from Sicily they had 6 wins, 6 draws, and only 3 losses. At home, Palermo has an average of 1.67 points per game, compared to 1.60 away. Their performance is almost identical, with home advantage almost irrelevant. Palermo is the sixth-best team in the league for points earned at home (25), behind Venezia, Parma (both at 33), Como (31), Catanzaro (27), and Cremonese (26), and the third best for points earned away (24). Ahead of them, there are only Parma (32), Cremonese (30), and equal with Venezia (24). Surprisingly, the word “balance” seems to be part of Palermo’s vocabulary at least in this respect. There is a significant balance in performance between home and away games.

The same concept cannot be applied when talking about defense, as Palermo has conceded 41 goals in 30 league games (more than one per game) and scored 52. An oxymoron that confirms the team’s chameleonic identity and its continuous rollercoaster journey. Meanwhile, in Pisa, Corini will confirm his ideological choice (different from the one so far) to field a team with a lower center of gravity and a three-man defense (becoming five when out of possession) to provide more coverage. They are aiming for a second consecutive away win after beating bottom-of-the-league Lecco 0-1.
