Our football match prediction:
Against all odds, Atalanta suffered a heavy 7-1 loss to Inter on Matchday 28. The Nerazzurri put an end to Atalanta’s team seven-game unbeaten run in the Serie A, but the Orobici could quickly get back on course as they host Pescara at their Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia on Sunday afternoon. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men aim to bounce back from the heartbreaking loss to Inter and we predict that the hosts will leave their hearts on the field in Sunday’s football match against the relegation strugglers. The Delfini are on a three-game losing run in the Italian top flight ahead of the trip to Bergamo and they are ten behind Empoli, who are sitting in the “safe” zone in the Serie A standings. It is well known that Pescara struggle on the travels and they are unlikely to spoil Atalanta’s party at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
