Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Even though Milan fans expected that their favourites would extend their winning run in the Serie A on Tuesday evening, the Rossoneri suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Genoa at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. It is more than obvious that Milan are not capable of producing splendid performances on regular basis, but they are regarded as hot favourites to win Sunday’s football match against Pescara. Vincenzo Montella’s men are after their fourth consecutive win at home and the fact that they have already defeated Torino, Lazio, Sassuolo and Juventus on home soil this term is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Pescara. The newcomers are on an eight-game winless run in the Italian top-flight and conceded seven goals in previous three away fixtures in the league. Milan emerged triumphant in last two meetings with Pescara in the Serie A and we predict that the Rossoneri are going to extend their winning run.
Highlighted Player (Matias Fernandez):
Matias Fernandez was born in Argentina but there was never a doubt that he would turn up for Chile. The 30-year-old attacking midfielder started his senior professional career with Colo-Colo in 2004 and was pivotal to the Chilean club winning the 2006 Clausura tournament. He would then go on to sign for Spanish side Villarreal after spurning advances from many top clubs. But his time at Villarreal was mostly spent on bench eventually leaving for Sporting Clube de Portugal in 2009. He remained an important part of their attacking unit and started earning plaudits for his skills. In 2012 he moved to Italian club Fiorentina. The versatile midfielder is renowned for his dribbling skills and as a free-kick specialist. He already has 71 caps with the Chilean national team and has appeared in the 2010 World Cup and four Copa America tournaments so far. Fernandez was also chosen as ‘South American Footballer of the Year’ in 2006.
Highlighted Team (Pescara):
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. The club’s main rivals are Lazio and Verona, but the likes of Chieti, Virtus and L’Aquila are considered Pescara’s bitter rivals as well. Vicenza and Messina are regarded as Gemellaggi (Twinning) with Pescara. Delfini have yet to win the Serie A trophy, but it has to be noted that they won the Serie B twice (1986/1987, 2011/2012). The colour of Pescara’s home kit is white and blue, while the team’s away kit is dark blue.
