Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Buoyed by a 3-1 win over Juve Stabia, Pescara will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Pisa at Arena Garibaldi. The Delfini restarted the season in style, but they need to keep on raising their form if they are to secure a top-eight finish. Pescara are not regarded as good travelers, but they should take advantage of the fact that Friday’s game will be played behind closed doors.
Pisa, on the other hand, aim to extend their unbeaten run in the Serie B to three games. Anyhow, the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and we predict that they are going to share the spoils on Matchday 30. Pescara trio Farelli – Palmiero – Tumminello is sidelined with injury, while Pisa midfielder Marius Marin misses the match through suspension.
