Bologna vs Pescara: Preview and Prediction

Bologna vs Pescara Match Preview 14th May 2017

Bologna vs Pescara
2016/17 Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 14 May 2017
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara (Bologna).

Bologna will hope to heap more misery on Pescara as they welcome them to the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Sunday.

Pescara have been already relegated. They have yet to win an actual away win this season, as their only victory on the road was a default victory given to them due to Sassuolo’s administrative error. The Delfini have lost 12 out of their last 14 road fixtures, and the majority of those defeats have been by at least a two goal margin.

Bologna can take advantage of this. They’re safe from the drop due to how badly the other sides have fared, but they naturally will want to finish as high in the table as possible. Although they have suffered some disappointing defeats, namely a 7-1 drubbing at the hands of Napoli, they have won seven of their home games thus far. That includes a 4-0 win over Udinese and a 4-1 win against Chievo.

Despite the fact that they have lost all of their games at home against the top sides, including both Milan and Inter, Bologna have managed to beat the other visitors to their home ground. Pescara are already down in Serie B and will be looking forward to finishing the season as quickly as possible. Will Bologna further enhance their chances in ending the season in a higher position?
