Pescara vs Palermo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

The only two already-relegated sides in the Serie A will square off on Monday night, as Pescara welcome Palermo at the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia. Pescara were beaten 3-1 on the road at Bologna last time out, with their consolation goal being scored by Jean-Christophe Bahebeck. On the contrary, Palermo won 1-0 at home over Genoa thanks to a first-half goal from Andrea Rispoli. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

These two teams have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net the entire season, as they conceded 153 goals between them. Both are already relegated into the Serie B, so I’m expecting an open game with at least four goals scored. I’m also fancying Palermo to pick up at least one point from this trip, as their recent form has been much better than Pescara’s.

Pescara Preview

Pescara’s form over the past three months has seen them losing nine and drawing two of their last eleven games in the Serie A. Pescara are definitely one of the worst teams in the Serie A over the past few seasons as they only collected 14 points from their 36 league outings. They are already relegated into the Serie B and the main reason for this humiliating campaign has been their terrible defence. The Delfini have conceded 79 goals in 36 rounds, which is definitely the worst defensive record in the division. On home soil, Pescara have only won once in their 18 home league fixtures this season, scoring just 17 goals in this term. The Delfini are currently on a five-game winless streak in the Serie A at home and have failed to score in two of these. Head-to-head, Pescara are winless in their last four meetings with Palermo across all competitions, registering two draws and two defeats in the process. Gianluca Caprari is the club’s top scorer with eight goals under his belt, while Ahmad Benali has helped the team with six goals and two assists in his 33 league appearances.

Pescara Team News

Davide Vitturini, Guglielmo Stendardo, Hugo Armando Campagnaro and Simone Pepe are all doubts, but Ahmad Benali is still missing through suspension.

Palermo Preview

Meanwhile, Palermo have enjoyed a decent run of form in the Serie A over the past month, but unfortunately, it’s already too late. They will be playing in the Serie B next term as they only collected 23 points from their 36 league outings so far this season. Similar to their Monday’s opponents, Palermo have also struggled to keep the ball out of their own net throughout the season. They have the second leakiest defence in the division, having conceded 74 goals in 36 rounds. Their away form throughout this Serie A campaign has also been awful as Palermo have only won two of their 18 league trips so far this season. The Rosanero are currently on a nine-game winless streak on the road, but the good news is that they have scored at least once in seven of these. In addition, Palermo picked up victories in two of their three visits to the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia, scoring two goals in each of these. Despite Palermo’s struggle throughout the season, Ilija Nestorovski has enjoyed an excellent campaign, helping the team with ten goals and three assists in his 35 league appearances.

Palermo Team News

Edoardo Goldaniga, Gennaro Ruggiero, Slobodan Rajkovic, Alessandro Gazzi and Carlos Apna Embalo are all doubts ahead of this trip.
