Chievo vs Pescara
Italy – Serie B
Date: Friday, 31 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Chievo has reasons to believe in finishing the regular season of Serie B with a home win. Pescara has been weak in their away games and trailing with 8 points behind the host in the table will not be a powerful point for the away win.
Chievo vs Pescara Match preview
Chievo had two consecutive losses on the road in their league schedule lately. However, a home win brought them back, and they continued with a 0-1 away win against Benevento last time out in the league.
The host has lost only one of their last five matches at home. They have only 5 losses from their 18 attempts at home in the campaign until now.
The 1-0 win at home against Livorno in Pescara’s last league clash ended their seven-game drought in the schedule since their opening win post lockdown.
Pescara has won none of their last eight trips on the road (1D 7L). The visitor has only 5 wins in their 18 away fixtures in the league so far this season.
Their reverse fixture this season at Pescara had ended in a goalless draw, and as such, we can expect a slow encounter with a tight clash in ninety minutes.

Chievo vs Pescara Prediction
The match is probably with Chievo unless they make a huge slip-up. They are not in that much pressure for their spot in the Serie B playoffs.
The host has also succeeded in their recent h2h clashes with the guests.
The home win is backed by their winning streak in the campaign lately. Besides, the host enjoys home ground advantage and in addition to that, Pescara has a troubled away from in the league.
Furthermore, Chievo has kept a clean sheet in the recent four h2h meetings with the visitor.
Besides, none of their recent nine h2h clashes have seen both teams score in the game and also haven’t produced over 2 goals in any of them.
So, we cannot expect a high-scoring affair when these two teams meet here. Therefore, with strong influence from h2h, the under 2.5 goals full-time is the best bet for this encounter.
