Explain in brief the following article:

Sooner or later it had to happen. Against Venice, in fact, Palermo interrupted the positive streak against the top four teams in the Serie B, ending a winning streak that had seen them never lose against Parma, Cremonese, Como and, indeed, Venice. With 6 previous favorable results, including 3 wins and 3 draws, Palermo faced the match against the Venetians with the awareness of always performing well against the “giants”, at least until Friday evening when a heavy defeat arrived. A clear 3-0 defeat for Palermo, which also risked conceding more goals. A defeat that puts an end to one of the few positive aspects of this season.

The flawless run against the top four started with Venice, on September 26 when Brunori unleashed his fury at the Penzo. The captain scored a “perfect” hat-trick, with goals from right foot, left foot, and a header. An all-round performance that led Palermo to an away victory in the first big match of the season. Then, confirmation came away at Parma, a team dominating the championship under Pecchia’s management. Again, Brunori led the way for Palermo, scoring a splendid brace that put Palermo two goals ahead in a rocked Tardini stadium. A goal from over 40 meters and a curled shot with his right foot left Chichizola helpless. A strong reaction from the home team brought the score level despite Palermo being 3-1 up until the 90th minute. A 3-3 draw that still boosted the team’s confidence against the top teams.

The full result wasn’t achieved even in the match against Como, despite another stellar performance from Palermo, who were leading by a goal until the 91st minute when Marconi’s mistake led to a penalty for Como, which Verdi converted to equalize the score at 3-3. However, a few days later, Palermo got their revenge against Cremonese at the Barbera stadium, with Stulac’s 97th-minute free kick sealing a 3-2 victory for the rosanero. The lucky streak continued at home with a convincing 3-0 win against Como, propelling Palermo to the third spot. The unbeaten streak also extended to the match against Cremonese at the Zini stadium, which ended in a 2-2 draw but felt like a disappointment due to the turnaround (from 0-2 to a draw with the grigiorossi down to ten men). Friday marked the end of this unbeaten run and confirmed that Palermo is not up to the level of those ahead in the league standings.
