Whenever these teams take on each other, the teams that have the home status have very high chances of getting on the scoresheet. The claim is backed by the fact that 12 of the total h2h games between these teams saw the home sides scoring. Also, Salernitana has scored in 16 of their last 18 home-ties, a streak that stretches back to last season.

All these stats will be extra motivation for Salernitana, a team just two points away from the playoff spots. They will score the first goal.

Pescara has scored in seven of their last eight away games. Also, in their entire history, they have failed only once to score against Salernitana, at this venue. Pescara has scored 12 goals in their last 7 h2h matches at this stadium. Add the shaky defense of Salernitana to the mix, and we have ourselves a match where both teams will score.
