Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Pordenone and Perugia take on each other at Stadio Guido Teghil in the opening match of the new Serie B campaign. Pordenone experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their Coppa Italia opener against Spezia (1-3), with the team’s defence looking shaky in pre-season as well. Patrick Ciurria, who scored nine goals in the Serie B last term, is no longer part of the team, while new signings Franck Tsadjout is likely to make his Pordenone debut against Perugia.
The newcomers, on the other hand, are eager to impress on their return to the Serie B. I Griffoni aim to bounce back from the Coppa Italia defeat to Genoa, and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the match. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Jacopo Murano, who scored 11 goals in the Serie C last season.
