Paris: Rock-bottom Palermo had a man sent off in a 0-0 draw with Genoa on Saturday, a result which did little to help their Serie A survival chances.

Salvatore Aronica received his marching orders in the second half for a foul on Marco Borriello - it was the Sicilians’ eighth red card of the season.

Josip Ilicic had a chance to win it for Palermo but goalkeeper Sebastien Frey pulled off a fine save to earn Genoa a point.

Meanwhile, Sunday’s game between Bologna and Fiorentina was postponed because of a snow-covered pitch.
