Chievo Verona vs Pescara Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

ChievoVerona and Pescara will square off at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Sunday afternoon, with both sides looking to put their Serie A campaign back on track. ChievoVerona were thrashed 1-3 at home by SSC Napoli last time out with their consolation goal being scored by Riccardo Meggiorini in the 72nd minute. On the other hand, Pescara managed an incredible 5-0 home victory over Genoa thanks to a brace from Gianluca Caprari, two goals from Ahmad Benali and Alberto Cerri along with an own-goal from Lucas Orban. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

ChievoVerona have enjoyed a much better Serie A campaign than Pescara, but the visitors looked absolutely impeccable last time out against Genoa. With the new coach Zdenek Zeman at the helm, I’m expecting another entertaining affair. These two sides have bagged 89 goals between them throughout this Serie A campaign.

ChievoVerona Preview

ChievoVerona’s three-game undefeated run in the Serie A ended last weekend as they lost 1-3 at home at the hands of SSC Napoli. The Flying Donkeys currently stand in 11th spot in the standings with 32 points under their belts thanks to a record of nine wins, five draws and eleven defeats in their 25 league fixtures. Chievo have been struggling to find the back of the net throughout this Serie A campaign, as they hold one of the worst offensive records in the division with just 26 goals scored in 25 league outings. Roberto Inglese is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with six goals under his belt, while Sergio Pellissier has helped the team with five goals and one assist in his 19 league appearances. Valter Birsa has also played a vital role in Chievo’s performances throughout the season, as he provided four goals and seven assists. On home soil, ChievoVerona were on a five-game unbeaten streak towards the end of 2016, but they are now winless in the last four home league fixtures. Head-to-head, ChievoVerona have won their last three meetings with Pescara in the Serie A, scoring six goals and conceding none in the process.

Pescara Preview

Massimo Oddo has been sacked two weeks ago and was replaced by Zdenek Zeman. The new coach is well-known for his attacking mentality, and he proved that in his first game in charge last week, as Pescara picked up an incredible 5-0 home victory over Genoa. This was Pescara’s first victory on the field throughout this Serie A campaign, as they were awarded with a 3-0 win over Sassuolo when the Neroverdi fielded an ineligible player. Despite the win, the Delfini are still rock bottom of the Serie A table with just 12 points to their name after 25 rounds, already 10 points behind safety. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Pescara’s main issue throughout the season, as they hold the worst defensive record in the division with 55 goals conceded in 25 league fixtures. On the road, Pescara are winless in their last twelve away league fixtures since their 0-3 win over Sassuolo back in the middle of September 2016. The most worrying fact is that Pescara have conceded at least two goals in their last ten away games across all competitions. The good news is that the Delfini have won two of their four visits to the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi, scoring two goals in each of these.
