Team News

  • Blasi and Weiss are back after serving suspensions and will be part of the starting XI.
  • D'Agostino is struggling with an injury, and he's not yet sure to be able to take part in this match.
  • Cascione is ready to replace him in the middle of the field.
  • Benatia is injured and Angella is still suspended, so Heurtaux will start in defence.
  • Aside from replacing the defender, Guidolin will keep the same lineup that drew with Napoli last time out.
  • Maicosuel may have some time on the pitch in the second half should Di Natale need some rest.

Prediction

  • Pescara failed to win again last week, and now their streak without three points is up to 7 matches. Should Genoa and Atalanta win, this match could represent Pescara's last chance of keeping any hope of survival alive.
  • Udinese slowed down their march towards the European qualification, especially away from the Friuli where they have collected only one point in their last four matches (and none in the last three). Guidolin has always stated that their goal was safety, but with 37 points already in the bag, it should be time to aim for more.
  • The visitors will travel to get the full prize despite their bad away form, as Pescara are a beatable team for anyone else. Di Natale will be hungry for goals since he's not scored in his last six appearances and Pescara's defence will have a hard time trying to contain him.
