Pescara surprised everyone by holding Napoli to a 2-2 draw in their opening league game. It was least expected from a side that just got promoted as they made a flying start to the game by rushing to a 2-0 lead inside the first half. They were denied a win by Dries Mertens, who struck twice inside three minutes to salvage some pride for the travelling Napoli fans.

Sassuolo vs Pescara: Head-to-Head

  • The latest competitive meeting between the two sides was on December 2014 in a Coppa Italia fixture, which was won by Sassuolo 1-0 in front of their home crowd.
  • Sassuolo are unbeaten in the three home matches against Pescara so far, with 2 wins and a draw. While Pescara were victorious in each of their two home games against Sassuolo so far.
  • They also meet in a friendly on August 2015 at Pescara, which ended in a 3-2 win for Sassuolo.
  • Only one of the five competitive meeting between these two sides have seen over 2.5 goals.

Sassuolo vs Pescara: Prediction

Sassuolo’s good form is expected to continue over the weekend when they meet old foes Pescara at the Mapei Stadium on Sunday. They have already played 5 competitive matches so far this season, with four of those in the Europa League qualifiers, and won three and drawn 2. It is also interesting to know that each of their two home games end in 3-0 wins.

Pescara have shown that they are no pushover by holding Napoli to a 2-2 draw in the opening fixture. Moreover they are a very attack minded side and with the lack of sheer quality in the squad, they are expected to struggle in way games. Also, they haven’t won at Mapei Stadium in three visits and this put Sassuolo on a strong position to come out with all three points.

Domenico Berardi is a player to watch in this fixture as he has scored in each of Sassuolo’s five competitive fixture this season. Berardi to score anytime is at 2.30 and will be a worthwhile investment.
