Pescara vs AS Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: Monday, 24th April 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Adriatico – Giovanni Cornacchia, Pescara.
AS Roma have the same task as Juve in the previous round – secure three points against the weakest Serie A team.
In the previous round, Roma welcomed Atalanta in Rome, where the guests snatched a point in the 1-1 draw, meaning the title aspirations for AS Roma are over.
Pescara were beaten by the Old Lady as Gonzalo Higuain was the double scorer for the Bianconeri.
Only a miracle could save the hosts from the relegation at this point. In 32 games played, they only managed to earn 14 points from 2 victories and 8 draws. Also, first victory was awarded to them as the opposition failed to meet the league regulations.
In the last three Pescara’s games in the Italian top flight, 2 or fewer goals were scored.
Roma are 8 points behind Juve meaning that with six games to go the Bianconeri are unlikely to slip up as they are cruising towards the another title. The guests are on the four-game winning streak on the road and they will probably add fifth in Pescara visit.
Roma have been winning both after the half-time whistle and the final whistle in 6 out of last 7 games in the domestic league. Also, during the last three away games, they managed to net at least three per match.
Pescara vs Roma: Head-to-head
In this season’s reverse, Pescara fought hard in Rome, scoring two and unfortunately losing with only one goal margin. The hosts are yet to beat the team from the capital.
Pescara vs Roma: Prediction
Three points in Pescara is a must for AC Roma in order to maintain the advantage over Napoli towards the automatic Champions League qualifier. Pescara have nothing to play for, so they could cause the minor troubles for Spalletti’s men.
