Pescara vs Roma Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Roma 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 Monday night. Pescara suffered a 0-2 home defeat at the hands of Juventus last time out, with Zdenek Zeman’s men conceding both goals in the first half. On the other hand, Roma managed to secure a 1-1 home draw against Atalanta thanks to a second-half equaliser from Edin Dzeko. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Roma should have no problems in picking up all three points in this as Pescara are the worst team in the division. However, for better value, I’m backing Roma to secure a big-margin victory as their recent away form has seen them scoring at least two goals in seven of their last eight away games across all competitions.

Pescara Preview

Pescara’s abysmal run in the Serie A continued last weekend as they lost 0-2 at home at the hands of Juventus. Overall, the Delfini have only won two of their 32 opening league fixtures and come into this tie on the back of a seven-game winless streak. Pescara are rock bottom of the Serie A table with just 14 points to their name after 32 rounds, already 12 points behind safety. Mathematically, they can still be saved, but they need to win all six of their remaining games. They looked poor at both ends of the field throughout this Serie A campaign, but their biggest problems have been at the back. The Delfini have conceded 70 goals in 32 league games, which is definitely the worst defensive record in the division. On home soil, Pescara have only won once in their 16 home league fixtures, and are currently on a three-game winless streak. Furthermore, the Delfini are winless in their four meetings with Roma across all competitions, losing three and drawing once in this term. Pescara’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season has been Gianluca Caprari with eight goals in his 29 league appearances.

Roma Preview

On the contrary, Roma have enjoyed an impressive run of form over the past month, winning six and drawing once in their last seven games across all competitions. However, the Giallorossi haven’t been at their best in their most recent league fixtures as they only managed a 1-1 home draw against Atalanta. Roma controlled the game from the first whistle but saw themselves one-goal down in the 22nd minute and were able to secure just one point thanks to a second-half equaliser from Edin Dzeko. Roma still sit in second position in the Serie A table, but they are now eight points off the current leaders Juventus and just two points clear of the third-placed SSC Napoli. Roma looked incredibly strong going forward throughout this Serie A campaign, as they are the division’s second topscorers with 70 goals scored in 32 league games. Edin Dzeko is the Serie A’s joint topscorer with 25 goals and four assists under his belt, while Mohamed Salah and Radja Nainggolan have bagged 20 goals and 12 assists between them. Roma’s recent away form has seen them registering two 0-3 victories over Palermo and Bologna in their most recent two league trips.
