Pescara vs Bologna Betting Preview
Pescara tries to expand its invincible run the six games in a row, but they could aim for something more as they take on a struggling opponent. Bologna has the better team on paper, but recent results have been disappointing to say the least and the visitors are mired in a lengthy winless streak. Under normal circumstances, they might be pushing for a victory on the road, but tonight the visitors wouldn't mind returning home with one point.

Pescara vs Bologna Betting Tips
Bologna relegated from Serie A and everyone expected them to take the lower division by storm, yet they only earn one point in the first two rounds. Losing on the road at Perugia was bad enough, but the inability to win at home against newly promoted Virtus Entella was even worse. The visitors scored in the first minute of the game and defended with all lines for 90 min. but Bologna failed to score.
Now they might be the ones trying to defend the scoreless draw, because the offensive is struggling and manager Lopez is running out of options. Cacia is guaranteed to play up front after scoring the only goal against Virtus Entella, but without a partner in the offensive, he is probably going to get stranded.
Pescara is not one of the teams with high expectations and they are fully aware of the fact that fighting for a place eligible for promotion is an overly ambitious objective. Finishing in the first half is a more reasonable target and this is what they will be aiming this season. So far, they are clearly on the right track after earning a point in both games, but tonight they could record their first win this season.
Pescara kept a clean sheet in two of the last three games and the starting formation featuring five defenders worked as a charm. Maniero and Pasquato are going to start up-front for the second consecutive game with the latter scoring against Ternana over the weekend.
- Bologna didn't win a single game in the last 12 rounds and can only brag about two victories over the last 20 games
- Pescara is seeking its first victory in head to head games against Bologna, but this looks like the best opportunity to play the three points
Pescara vs Bologna Betting Prediction
Pescara is clearly the team in better form, undefeated in the last five matches and they only allowed two goals over that span. Odds of 2.25 for a home win are spectacular and make this a no-brainer, for anyone who has an account with Bet365 and plans on betting on Serie B this Friday.
