Pescara vs Sassuolo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Pescara will be looking to put their Serie A campaign back on track when they welcome Sassuolo at the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia on Sunday afternoon. Pescara were thrashed 3-1 on the road at SSC Napoli last time out in the Serie A, with their consolation goal being scored by Gianluca Caprari in the stoppage time. On the flip side, Sassuolo won 4-1 at home over Palermo last weekend thanks to a brace from Alessandro Matri, and another two goals from Antonino Ragusa and Matteo Politano. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Pescara Preview

Pescara are the worst Serie A side at the moment, as they failed to win a single game on the pitch in their opening 19 league fixtures. Actually, their sole victory in this Serie A campaign was a void result against Sassuolo in the reverse fixture back in August, when Sassuolo brought on an unregistered player from the bench. Apart from that result, Pescara have lost 12 and drawn six of their 19 league games so far this season, picking up just nine points in this term. They are rock bottom of the league table tied on points with the 19th-placed Crotone, already ten points behind safety. The Delfini have struggled at both ends of the field throughout this Serie A campaign, but their biggest problems have been at the back as they hold the 3rd worst defensive record in the division with 36 goals conceded in 19 rounds. Their home form has seen them losing five and drawing four of their nine home fixtures in the Serie A this season, scoring just seven goals in the process. The good news is that Pescare have won their two competitive home fixtures against Sassuolo, conceding just two goals in this term. A player to watch here is Gianluca Caprari, as the 23-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 4 goals in his 19 league appearances.

Sassuolo Preview

Sassuolo have finally returned to winning ways in the Serie A last time out thanks to a 4-1 home victory over Palermo. Prior to this result, the Neroverdi were on a five-game winless streak across all competitions. However, Sassuolo succumbed to another defeat in midweek, as they lost 1-2 at home at the hands of Cesena in Coppa Italia. Sassuolo find themselves in 16th place in the Serie A table with 21 points under their belts thanks to a record of 6 wins, 3 draws and 11 defeats from their opening 20 league fixtures. The Neroverdi managed an impressive tally of 28 goals so far this season, but they really struggled at the other end of the field. They already allowed 34 goals in 20 rounds, which is one of the worst defensive records in the division. A player to watch for Sassuolo is Gregoire Defrel, as the 25-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 6 goals and 2 assists under his belt. Lorenzo Pellegrini has also played a decent role in Sassuolo’s performances throughout this Serie A campaign, helping the team with 3 goals and 3 assists in his 15 league appearances. The most worrying fact is that Sassuolo looked terrible on the road since the start of the season, winning just once in their 14 competitive fixtures to date.

Pescara Team News

Simone Pepe, Norbert Gyomber, Hugo Armando Campagnaro, Jean-Christophe Bahebeck, Cesare Bovo, Gianluca Caprari, Andrea Coda and Ahmad Benali are all doubts, while David Vitturini and Gaston Brugman are both out through injury.

Sassuolo Team News

Simone Missiroli, Marcello Gazzola and Davide Biondini are all doubts, but Francesco Magnanelli is definitely out through a cruciate ligament injury.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Pescara looked awful on home soil since the start of the season, scoring just five goals in their nine home league fixtures. On the flip side, Sassuolo are winless in their last ten away games in all competitions, but they managed to get on the scoresheet in each of these. I think that Sassuolo have enough quality within their squad to grab all three points, and their head-to-head record is superior to Pescara.
