Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365
Two sides who have struggled with their form at the back end of the season, Verona will host Pescara in their Serie B semi-final first-leg on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Verona may have managed to secure their spot in the playoffs with plenty of time to spare, it has been a very sluggish end to the year. In their 36 Serie B matches this year, they recorded 13 wins, 13 draws and 10 defeats, scoring 49 and conceding 46 in return. Finishing the year with a points tally of 52, Wednesday’s hosts also finished the year three points adrift of Pescara in the final standings. As for their recent run of results, Verona have managed to record just two victories in their last 10 appearances and have failed to register a single clean sheet in any of their previous 11 outings.
As for the visitors, while Pescara may have also managed to book their spot in the top-eight with time to spare, they are also enduring a sluggish end to the year. In their 36 Serie B matches this campaign, they recorded 14 wins, 13 draws and nine defeats, scoring 50 and conceding 46 in return. Securing a fourth-place finish in the final standings, Wednesday’s visitors have managed to secure just a single victory in their last six appearances, drawing four and losing one. However, and more worrying, Pescara have failed to win any of their last six matches on the road.
