Pescara vs Genoa Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Pescara and Genoa will be facing each other at the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia on Sunday afternoon, with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in the Serie A. Pescara suffered a 5-3 defeat on the road at Torino last weekend, despite having managed to score all three goals in the last 17 minutes of the game. Torino’s defender Arlind Ajeti scored an own-goal in the 73rd minute, while Ahmad Benali netted a brace within the space of eight minutes. On the flip side, Genoa lost 2-0 on the road at SSC Napoli, with Ivan Juric’s men conceding both 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’s abysmal run in the Serie A continued at the weekend as they suffered another defeat, losing 5-3 away at Torino. Pescara are definitely the worst team in the Serie A at the moment, as they have won just once in their opening 24 league outings. Actually, their sole victory of this Serie A campaign was a gift as they were awarded with three points after Sassuolo used an ineligible player in the second round of the season. The Delfini are currently on a 22-game winless streak in the Serie A, losing 17 and drawing five in the process. Pescara are rock bottom of the Serie A table with just nine points under their belts after 24 rounds, already 16 points behind safety. The Delfini looked poor at both ends of the pitch throughout this Serie A campaign, but their biggest problems have been at the back. They hold the worst defensive record with 55 goals conceded in 24 league outings. Actually, Pescara have allowed at least two goals in each of their last six games in the Serie A. On home soil, Pescara are winless in their last 12 home league fixtures since a 2-0 win over Frosinone in the Coppa Italia back in the middle of August 2016. The good news is that Pescara are undefeated in their last four home meetings with Genoa in all competitions, winning two and drawing two in this term.

Genoa Preview

Genoa have also looked awful over the past two months, having lost seven and drawn two of their last nine games across all competitions. During this poor run of form, Genoa were knocked out from the Coppa Italia following a 4-2 defeat at Lazio in the middle of January 2017. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been the main reason for Genoa’s recent poor results, as they conceded at least two goals in five of their last six games across all competitions. Their away form has also been an issue, as Genoa are winless in the last ten away games in all competitions, conceding at least two goals in nine of these. The good news is that Genoa are still 11 points clear off the relegation zone. Although they are in a safe position, Genoa must solve their problems on the road as their last away victory was a 0-1 triumph at Bologna back in the beginning of October 2016. In addition, Genoa are winless in their last four visits to the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia, conceding two goals in three of these. Head-to-head, Genoa are undefeated in the last two meetings with Pescara in the Serie A, including a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture.

Pescara Team News

Cesare Bovo, Alberto Gilardino, Hugo Armando Campagnaro and Jean-Christophe Bahebeck are all doubts.

Genoa Team News

Santiago Gentiletti, Jules Olivier Ntcham and David Biraschi are all doubts, but Mattia Perin and Miguel Veloso are both missing through injury.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both sides have struggled of late, but both have been involved in high-scoring affairs. Both have bagged 90 goals between them throughout the season, so over 2.5 goals seems to be a valuable bet in this one. I’m also backing both sides to get on the scoresheet, as it happened in the reverse fixture.
