Our match prediction:
Having shared the spoils with Chievo in Verona at the weekend, Lazio will be looking to start a new winning run in the Serie A when they host Pescara at their Stadio Olimpico on Saturday afternoon. The capital club were beaten by title holders Juventus in their last home game in the national championship, but they are certainly capable of picking up all three points from Saturday’s football match against Pescara. It is well known that Lazio are a real force to be reckoned with at home and they are likely to record their first home win of the season. The newcomers head into the game following a 2-1 loss to Inter and the lack of confidence might prove to be the team’s biggest problem in Saturday’s clash in the capital of Italy. When the two teams met at Stadio Olimpico in 2013 Lazio recorded a routine 2-0 win over Pescara.
