Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Stadio Giovanni Zini will host Friday’s football game between Cremonese and Pescara, the two relegation-threatened teams. Cremonese have yet to record a win after the coronavirus football break, meaning that they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Pescara. Midfielder Mariano Arini will have to serve his ban against the Delfini, while Francesco Migliore and Antonio Piccolo remain in the recovery room.
Pescara, on the other hand, came from behind to save one point from the Empoli game. The Delfini are eager to return to winning ways in the Serie B, but beating Cremonese at Stadio Giovanni Zini is easier said than done. A low-scoring affair is on the horizon, and seeing that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous six meetings in the Serie B, we are unlikely to see goals galore in Friday’s showdown.

Pescara are an Italian football club that play in the Serie A. The Delfini (The Dolphins) returned to the Italian top flight at the end of the 2015/2016 season and it has to be noted that they competed in six seasons in the elite division (1977–78, 1979–80, 1987–88, 1988–89, 1992–93, 2012–13).
Pescara play their home matches at Stadio Adriatico, the stadium that was opened in 1955 and renovated in 2009.
