Team News

  • Pescara appointed Cristiano Bergodi as the new manager after Stroppa resigned last week.
  • The new coach has to face a number of injuries and suspensions on his debut, with seven players unavailable.
  • Zanon will probably be replaced by Balzano on the right flank, while Terzilli is back and will play in defence instead of Romagnoli.
  • Zeman will give some chances to players he has used very few times so far. Pjanic could start in the midfield, while Destro will play in attack.
  • Destro will have to replace Roma's top-scorer Lamela, who is injured and will be out of action for a few matches.
  • Despite Lobont's availability, the coach should stick with Goicoechea between the posts.

Prediction

  • Pescara just changed their coach after losing a key match in the relegation battle against Siena. Bergodi will have to prepare for a tough match against an unpredictable opponent.
  • Zeman has the chance to get three points and put pressure on Lazio, as their rivals for a European spot will play on Tuesday without some key players.
  • The visitors should be able to keep the match at a high tempo and push Pescara back by pressing on both sides. Pescara will have a hard time defending, so they may even think of pushing back and trying to score one more than Roma.
Prediction:
4
