Pescara vs Crotone Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Two of the bottom three sides in the Serie A table will be facing each other at the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia on Sunday afternoon, as Pescara take on Crotone. Pescara were beaten 1-0 on the road at Cagliari last weekend, with Zdenek Zeman’s men conceding the goal from the spot in the 23rd minute. Crotone, on the flip side, managed a 1-1 home draw against AC Milan, although they took the lead in the 8th minute through Marcello Trotta. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Pescara are already relegated to the Serie B, but Crotone are in dire need of a win here in order to keep their survival hopes alive. Furthermore, Crotone are currently on a five-game unbeaten streak in the Serie A, including some impressive wins over Inter and Sampdoria. In addition, Crotone have won the last two meetings with Pescara in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of these. I’m backing Crotone to win, but I’m also expecting a high-scoring game as the most recent five meetings between these two sides have seen at least three goals scored.

Pescara Preview

Pescara have definitely been the worst team in the Serie A this season as they have only won two of their 34 league games. They are rock bottom of the league table with just 14 points to their name after 34 rounds and are already relegated into the Serie B. The Delfini head into this tie on the back of a nine-game winless streak in the Serie A, losing seven and drawing twice in the process. Pescara’s biggest problem throughout the season has been their sloppy defence as they hold the worst defensive record in the division, conceding 75 goals in 34 league fixtures. Their home form has also been awful as the Delfini have only won once in 17 home league fixtures, scoring just 17 goals in the process. The good news is that Pescara are undefeated in their last five home meetings with Crotone in all competitions, winning four and drawing once in this term. Head-to-head, Pescara have lost their last two meetings with Crotone in all competitions, including a 2-0 defeat in the reverse fixture. Gianluca Caprari and Ahmad Benali have been Pescara’s most in-form players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged 14 goals and four assists between them.

Pescara Team News

Simone Pepe, Hugo Armando Campagnaro and Jean-Christophe Bahebeck are all doubts, but Davide Vitturini is out through injury. Furthermore, Sulley Ali Muntari is out through suspension. The good news is that Guglielmo Stendardo and Alberto Gilardino are both back in training.

Crotone Preview

Crotone managed a 1-1 home draw against AC Milan last weekend, which means that they're still in the fight for survival in the Serie A. The Pitagorici come into this clash on the back of a five-game unbeaten streak in the Serie A, winning three and drawing twice in this term. Crotone currently sit in 18th spot in the league table with 25 points to their name after 34 rounds, just four points off the 17th-placed Empoli. This means that the Calabrians must win this tie to keep their hopes alive. Crotone looked poor going forward throughout this Serie A campaign as they hold the second joint worst attacking record in the division, scoring just 29 goals in 34 league games. Despite this negative record, Diego Falcinelli has enjoyed an excellent Serie A campaign, as the 25-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 12 goals from his 32 league appearances. Marcello Trotta and Adrian Stoian have also been in fine shape this season, as the pair bagged six goals and five assists between them. The bad news is that Crotone are the second worst away team in the division, having collected just nine points from their 17 league trips so far this season. However, Crotone looked pretty good on the road recently, registering two 1-2 victories at ChievoVerona and Sampdoria along with a 1-1 draw at Torino.
