Our football match prediction:
As expected, Pescara failed to upset Napoli at Stadio San Siro at the weekend. The Delfini suffered a 3-1 loss to Maurizio Sarri’s men in the shadow of Vesuvius and, as a result, they have slim chances of securing the top flight survival. Pescara sit in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Sassuolo and seeing that they are nine points behind the “safe zone” we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. Sassuolo proved their worth in a 4-1 win over Palermo, with the team putting an end to their four-match winless run in the national championship. The Neroverdi aim to move a little closer to the top half of the Serie A standings and given Pescara’s poor form, we predict that the visitors will give fans yet another reason for celebration after Sunday’s football match. A man to watch in the away team will be Alessandro Matri, who scored twice against in the 4-1 win over Palermo.
