Pescara vs Perugia
Italy – Serie B Relegation Playoff
Date: Monday, 10 August 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Adriatico – Giovanni Cornacchia.
After an exhausting campaign, these two teams have finished level on points in the bottom tier of the Serie B table, in the 16th and 17th positions.
Likely, they have been pitted against each other in the relegation playoffs, and after the two-legged tie, the winner will extend their stay in the competition, while their counterparts will be relegated.
In short, these are the most important 180 minutes of the whole year for the two squads.
Considering that the Dolphins were performing phenomenally well at home towards the end of the season, they do have the upper hand. And on top of that, the Griffins were struggling in overall fixtures, as well as on the road.
Likely, expect Pescara to be the better team on the pitch this Monday.
Pescara vs Perugia: Head-to-head (h2h)
- 18 of the former 22 match-ups had goals from both teams.
- Nine of the previous eleven encounters had three or more goals.

- The latest clash at this stadium had ended in a 2-2 draw.
- Since 1995, only once have the guests failed to score at this stadium.
Pescara vs Perugia: Prediction
Andrea Sottil’s men have lost a total of four times this whole season at home, and three of those defeats had come against teams in the top-five of the table. At present, they are on a six-match unbeaten run at this stadium, and were invincible in 20 of their past 25 appearances here.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of their last nine overall fixtures, and they have had a total of five wins in the last 12-month period away from home.
As such, expect Pescara to avoid a loss at the very least this Monday. However, understand that this is a do-or-die game for both teams, and that they are under enormous pressure.
On top of that, the Griffins have been the better team in h2h clashes recently, and 18 of the last 22 h2h games had goals from both teams. By all means, expect goals from both teams.
