Pescara vs Juventus Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Juventus will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the Serie A table when they travel to the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia to take on Pescara on Saturday afternoon. Pescara fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-1 away draw at Empoli last weekend thanks to a first-half equaliser from Gianluca Caprari. On the contrary, Juventus won 2-0 at home over ChievoVerona, with Gonzalo Higuain scoring a goal in each half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

This game should be a formality for Juventus as they are the second best away team in the division, while Pescara have only won two of their 31 league outings this season. Furthermore, Juve have won all of their five meetings with Pescara, scoring at least two goals in four of these. I’m backing Juve to grab a comfortable victory and to keep a clean sheet here. 

Both teams to score - No at 19/20

Asian Handicap -1.5 on Juventus at 87/100

Pescara Preview

Pescara are currently on a six-game winless streak in the Serie A, but they showed some signs of improvement recently. They registered a creditable 1-1 away draw at AC Milan a fortnight ago and followed this up with another 1-1 stalemate against Empoli at the weekend. Despite these two positive results, the Delfini still sit on the bottom place of the Serie A table and are already relegated into the Serie B. Pescara hold the best attacking record in the bottom five despite the fact that they're rock bottom of the table, but their defensive line has been the main reason for their struggle throughout this Serie A campaign. The Delfini have the most leakiest defence in the division, having conceded 68 goals in 31 league outings. Pescara have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven league fixtures and conceded at least two goals in four of these. Inter’s loanee Gianluca Caprari is Pescara’s topscorer with eight goals under his belt, while Ahmad Benali has helped the team with five goals and two assists in his 29 league appearances. Pescara are the second worst home side in the division at the moment in time, as they have only won once in their 15 home league fixtures while conceding 31 goals in the process. Furthermore, Pescara have lost both of their home fixtures with Juventus, conceding seven goals in this term.

Juventus Preview

After their narrow 3-2 defeat at the hands of SSC Napoli in the second leg of their Coppa Italia tie a week ago, Juventus bounced back with two solid victories. The Old Lady managed a comfortable 2-0 home win over ChievoVerona last time out in the Serie A and followed this up with an excellent 3-0 home victory over Barcelona in midweek in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-finals tie. This means that Juve are now with one foot into the Champions League semi-finals, already qualified for the Coppa Italia final and also find themselves on top of the Serie A table. The Bianconeri have six points more than the second-placed Roma with just seven games to play, which means they are very close to secure their 6th Scudetto in a row. Juventus’ excellent Serie A campaign has been largely based on their solid defence, as they hold the best defensive record in the division with just 20 goals conceded in 31 rounds. They also looked strong going forward, scoring 62 goals so far. Gonzalo Higuain is Juve’s topscorer with 21 goals in his 31 league appearances, while Paulo Dybala has helped the team with eight goals and six assists in the Serie A. The latter has been in great shape in midweek against Barcelona, scoring two goals within the space of 15 minutes. Head-to-head, Juventus have won their five meetings with Pescara in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in four of these.
