Team News

  • Balzano is back after his suspension and will take back his spot on the right flank.
  • Coach Bergodi will stick with a balanced 3-5-1-1 to try to improve their defensive reliability.
  • Weiss will support Abbruscato up front once again.
  • Delneri is still experimenting to find the best formation for his team. This time it should be a 4-1-4-1.
  • Seymour will play in front of the defence, to ensure more balance to the midfield.
  • Borriello is favoured over Immobile to take the lone striker position.

Prediction

  • Pescara were touted as the most likely side to be relegated at the start of the season, and four consecutive defeats have dropped the Biancocelesti to the bottom of the table, tied with Siena.
  • Genoa grabbed three points two rounds ago but are in a similar, desperate situation, sitting just one point ahead of their opponents and struggling to find a suitable line-up and playing style.
  • This match could easily turn into a battle to avoid relegation, and will be the best chance for both teams to show that they're still alive and fighting. Pescara have failed to do so in recent matches, but they had tough trips or fixtures against big teams. Genoa may have a better squad, but have failed to collect points in most of the games where they have seemed attainable.
