Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini believes that the club's next two games could decide whether or not they stay in Serie A.
The Rosanero lifted themselves off the foot of the table on Saturday after beating Roma 2-0.
And the Sicilian side's chief has insisted that wins over Sampdoria and Bologna could 'change the season'.
“We have to go to Sampdoria with the intention of winning the game,” he told La Repubblica.
“We have two important games in which we have to take two wins.
“If against Sampdoria and Bologna we can get six points, then our season could really change.”
