Our football match prediction:
After playing out back-to-back draws with the likes of Cagliari and Palermo, Sampdoria will be looking to start a new winning run in the Serie A when they welcome rock-bottom Pescara at their Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. La Samp have been producing scintillating displays in the second half of the season, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Former Torino attacker Fabio Quagliarella scored a late equalizer in the 1-1 draw with Palermo at the weekend and he will be the man to watch in the home team. The Delfini rolled over Genoa (5-0) in their last home fixture, but they were not capable of matching Chievo in the “City of Love” on Matchday 26. Pescara are on a four-match losing run on the road in the Italian top flight and we predict that they will not spoil Sampdoria's party at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris in Sunday's football match.
