Pescara vs Fiorentina Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Fiorentina will look to extend their unbeaten run in the Serie A to four games when they travel to the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia to take on Pescara on Wednesday night. Pescara were thrashed 3-0 on the road at Inter at the weekend despite the fact that they had several goalscoring opportunities. On the flip side, Fiorentina were held to a 3-3 home draw by Genoa even though they had the lead twice. Josip Ilicic gave Fiorentina the lead at halftime, while Federico Chiesa and Nikola Kalinic scored another two goals in the second half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Pescara Preview

Pescara continued their disappointing Serie A campaign last weekend, losing 3-0 on the road at Inter. This means that the Delfini are already one foot in the Serie B, as they find themselves bottom of the league table with 9 points to their name after 21 rounds, already 16 points behind safety. Pescara have failed to win in 20 of their 21 Serie A games to date, and their only triumph in this term was actually given to them by default after Sassuolo used an ineligible player. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Pescara’s biggest problem throughout this Serie A campaign, as they hold the second joint worst defensive record in the division with 42 goals conceded in 21 rounds. At the other end of the pitch, the Delfini only managed 16 goals so far this season, which is one of the poorest in the league. Gianluca Caprari is Pescara’s top scorer with just 4 goals under his belt in his 20 league appearances. On home soil, the Delfini have lost six and drawn four of their ten home league fixtures this season, scoring just six goals in the process. The interesting fact is that Pescara were unbeaten in three meetings with Fiorentina in all competitions prior to their 1-5 home defeat in their most recent game against La Viola.

Fiorentina Preview

On the contrary, Fiorentina extended their unbeaten run in the Serie A to four games last weekend thanks to a 3-3 home draw against Genoa. It was an extraordinary six-goal thriller, but it wasn’t such a great result for La Viola, as they had the lead on two different occasions. Prior to this game, Fiorentina were knocked-out from the Coppa Italia following a narrow 1-0 defeat on the road at SSC Napoli. Paulo Sousa’s men currently sit in 8th position in the Serie A table with 34 points after 21 rounds, just six points off the top five. Fiorentina have been scoring goals for fun throughout this Serie A campaign, but they have struggled a little bit at the other end of the pitch. La Viola already conceded 28 goals in 21 rounds so far this season, which is the worst defensive record in top eight. Nikola Kalinic and Federico Bernardeschi have been Fiorentina’s most influential players throughout this Serie A campaign, as the pair bagged 19 goals and 6 assists between them. On the road, Fiorentina have been alternating victories with defeats over the past three months, winning six and losing four of their last ten away fixtures across all competitions. The good news is that Fiorentina are unbeaten in their two visits to the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia, conceding just once in this term.

Pescara Team News

Hugo Armando Campagnaro, Cesare Bovo and Alberto Gilardino are all doubts, while Davide Vitturini and Gaston Brugman are both missing through injury. The good news is that Alessio Di Massimo is back in training.

Fiorentina Team News

Ciprian Anton Tatarusanu and Riccardo Saponara are both doubts, while Gonzalo Rodriguez and Bartlomiej Dragowski are both missing through injury. In addition, Federico Bernardeschi is out through suspension.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I don’t think that Pescare are capable to obtain a positive result in this one, as they are winless in the last 20 games in the Serie A and conceded 42 goals in this term. On the flip side, Fiorentina have been scoring goals for fun so far this season and they should be able to score a couple in this one as well. I’m backing Fiorentina to grab all three points and to score at least two goals.
