Pescara vs Lazio Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lazio will be aiming to close the gap at the top of the Serie A table when they travel to the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia to take on Pescara on Sunday afternoon. Pescara were beaten 1-2 at home by Fiorentina last weekend, despite they took the lead in the 15th minute through Gianluca Caprari. Meanwhile, Lazio suffered a narrow 0-1 home defeat against ChievoVerona, with Simone Inzaghi’s side conceding the goal in the stoppage time. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Pescara Preview

Pescara’s poor run of form continued last weekend as they lost 1-2 in front of their own fans at the hands of Fiorentina, despite they took the lead in the 15th minute through their most dangerous player, Gianluca Caprari. The 23-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 5 goals in his 21 league appearances. Pescara have failed to win a single game on the pitch so far this season, although they were awarded a 3-0 win over Sassuolo in the first part of the campaign as the Neroverdi used an ineligible player. Pescara are rock bottom of the Serie A table with just nine points to their name after 22 rounds, already 12 points behind safety. The Delfini looked awful at both ends of the field throughout this Serie A campaign, as they only scored 17 goals in 22 rounds while conceding 44 in the process. Actually, the Delfini hold the second worst defensive record in the league and have allowed at least two goals in five of their last six games in the Serie A. On home soil, Pescara are winless in ten Serie A games since a 2-0 home win over Frosinone in the Coppa Italia back in the middle of August 2016. Head-to-head, Pescara have lost their three meetings with Lazio in the Serie A, including a 3-0 defeat in the reverse fixture.

Lazio Preview

Lazio also showed signs of weakness of late, having suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of Juventus and ChievoVerona, without scoring a single goal in the process. However, the Biancocelesti bounced back with an impressive 1-2 victory on the road at Inter in their midweek Coppa Italia clash. Lazio can now count on their Serie A campaign, as they currently sit in 5th position in the standings with 40 points under their belts, just five points off the 3rd-placed SSC Napoli. Lazio’s solid defence has been Lazio’s secret for their good performances throughout this campaign, as they have one of the meanest defenses in the division with just 25 goals conceded in 22 rounds. Their recent away form over the past four months has been a complete mixed bag with four wins, two draws and two defeats in their last eight away fixtures in all competitions. The bad news is that the Biancocelesti have lost their last two away games in the Serie A and failed to score a single goal in the process. However, Lazio should feel confident ahead of this game as they have won their three meetings with Pescara in the Serie A, scoring eight goals and conceding none in this term.

Andrea Coda, Cesare Bovo, Davide Vitturini, Hugo Armando Campagnaro and Alberto Gilardino are all doubts, but Alessio Di Massimo is back in training.

Lazio Team News

Stefan de Vrij and Cristiano Lombardi are both doubts ahead of this clash.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Although Lazio haven’t been at their best on the road over the past month, Pescara looked awful on home soil so far this season and I don’t think that they can obtain a positive result in this one. Furthermore, Pescara have conceded at least two goals in seven of their ten home games in the Serie A this season. I’m backing Lazio to grab all three points and score a couple of goals in this one.
