Pescara – Empoli
Pescara hosts the leader Empoli in a match from the 32th round of the Italian Serie B. Let’s see where we do find these two teams in the league standings at this moment.
Pescara are 14th in the Serie B with 37 points won so far. They have a record of 9 wins, 10 draws and 12 defeats. This is something which does not allow them to fight for a promotion to the Serie A, but they are at least 4 points above the relegation playoff zone as well. Which is not a huge distance and if they are not careful, they could enter a pretty negative situation very quickly.
In their last five matches Pescara are without a win – two draws and three losses. In their last game Pescara made a 2-2 draw against Avellino. Before this they were in a run of three consecutive losses in the league.
Empoli on the other hand are performing in a very different way. They are leaders in the Serie B with 57 points and 3 points advantage in front of the 2nd Frosinone. And they even have a game in hand.
Empoli’s record so far shows 16 wins, 9 draws and just 5 defeats. In their last five matches Empoli are unbeaten – three wins and two draws. In their last match Empoli enjoyed a dramatic, but a sweet 3-2 win at home against Filippo Inzaghi’s Venezia.
It’s clear that right now Empoli are the biggest favourite to win the Serie B. They are the most consistent team at the moment. The coach Aurelio Andreazzoli is doing a very good job and he’s building a competitive team. As for Pescara, their biggest goal remains to keep their place in the league. Right now they are pretty safe, but things could change quickly.
