Livorno vs Pescara
Italy-Serie B.
Date: Sunday, 27th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Armando Picchi (Livorno).

The Dark Red are finding it hard to fight against the teams in this level after qualifying from the third division this season. They are 17th in the table, the spot where their opponents finished last season. With not even the half of the season completed, they still have chances to at least reach in a play-out spot.

They are on a 5 match unbeaten run that includes 2 wins at the moment. This is a kind of form that we cannot associate from a team who are in the relegation zone. They have shown real character to win against Carpi and Foggia. Both sides scored in 3 of their 5 previous games and both sides scored in 4 of those matches also.

A home they are on a 4 match unbeaten run which includes 3 draws. The best result at home recently came against Verona who is at the top-5 spot right now. That draw would have lifted their spirits coming into this game.

The visitors have completely transformed themselves this season. The team who finished 17th last season are 3rd at the moment. At present they are unbeaten in 3 matches with 2 of them being victories.

But away form raises concern as they lost 3 on the trot before winning the most recent match on the road. More than 2.5 goals came in all their 4 previous matches away from home.

With 2 unbeaten sides locking horns in the league, we can expect a game watch on Sunday.
