Pescara vs Udinese Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Pescara and Udinese will square off at the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia on Sunday afternoon, with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in the Serie A. Pescara were beaten 3-1 on the road at Sampdoria last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Alberto Cerri. On the contrary, Udinese managed a creditable 1-1 home draw against the reigning champions Juventus despite the fact that they took the lead in the 37th minute through Duvan Zapata.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both teams looked poor in the Serie A recently, but Udinese still have a much better squad than Pescara. Udinese head into this tie on a high following their impressive 1-1 home draw against Juventus, and this clash with Pescara represents a good opportunity for them to get back to winning ways. Furthermore, Udinese’s record over Pescara is impeccable as they have won all three meetings and conceded just one goal in the process. This having been said, I’m backing Udinese to grab all three points, but I’m also expecting a low-scoring affair as both sides looked poor going forward over the past few weeks.

Udinese to win at 7/5

Under 2.5 goals at 11/10

Pescara Preview

Although they managed an impressive 5-0 home win over Genoa in the middle of February, Pescara have succumbed to two consecutive defeats at the hands of ChievoVerona and Sampdoria in their most recent two league outings. Pescara are already relegated to the Serie B, but they can try not to finish bottom of the table. The Delfini are rock bottom of the Serie A table with just 12 points under their belts after 27 rounds, already 16 points behind safety. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Pescara’s main reason for their awful campaign, as they have the meanest defence in the division with 60 goals conceded in 27 league fixtures. Actually, the Delfini have conceded at least two goals in 13 of their last 15 games across all competitions. On home soil, Pescara were on a twelve home league fixtures prior to their 5-0 victory over Genoa in their most recent home game in the Serie A. The most worrying fact is that Pescara have only scored 14 goals in their 13 home fixtures in the Serie A this season. Gianluca Caprari is a player to watch for Pescara, as 23-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 7 goals in his 26 league appearances.

Udinese Preview

Udinese, on the flip side, have also struggled for fluency over the past two months, having won just one of their last nine games in the Serie A. The Zebrette head into this tie on the back of a five-game winless streak in the Serie A, scoring just two goals in the process. However, Udinese did well to hold Juventus to a 1-1 home draw last weekend, with Duvan Zapata taking the lead for the Zebrette. This leaves Udinese only in 14th position in the league table, but they are already 15 points clear in the relegation zone. Udinese looked short going forward throughout this Serie A campaign as they hold one of the worst attacking records in the division, scoring just 29 goals in 27 rounds. Cyril Thereau is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 9 goals under his belt, while Duvan Zapata and Seko Fofana have bagged eleven goals and two assists between them. Their recent away form has also been a problem, as the Zebrette are winless in their last five away games in the Serie A. The most worrying fact is that Udinese have failed to score a single goal in their last five league trips. The good news is that Udinese have won their three meetings with Pescara in the Serie A, conceding just one goal in the process.
