The Serie B tie at Stadio San Vito-Gigi Marulla on Saturday sees home team Cosenza welcome guests Pescara.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Cosenza v Pescara are shown below - along with the latest match odds.
Cosenza will be hoping to bounce back here following a 3-0 Serie B loss in their previous game against Pisa.
In that game, Cosenza managed 43% possession and 5 shots at goal with 1 on target. On the other side, Pisa got 21 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. Robert Gucher (50'), Luca Mazzitelli (73') and Marius Marin (86') scored for Pisa.
It’s been all too rare in recent times that Cosenza have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Bruzi have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 games, giving up 10 goals on the way.
In their last fixture, Pescara drew 1-1 in the Serie B match with Entella.
In that game, Pescara managed 62% possession and 20 attempts at goal with 8 of them on target. The scorer for Pescara was Nicola Rigoni (90'). Entella got 9 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Andrea Schenetti (29') scored for Entella.
Pescara have been dangerous up front of late, scoring 8 times in their previous 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that Delfini have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 6 of those same matches. While that may be of interest, it remains to be seen whether such a trend will be replicated in this game.
Analysis of their past results shows that Pescara:
- haven't been defeated in their previous 2 away league matches.
- have not won away from home in their last 4 league matches.

Team News: Cosenza
Abou Ba (Overstretching) and Luca Bittante (Cruciate Ligament Injury) will be missing for Cosenza gaffer Roberto Occhiuzzi.
Team News: Pescara
In an otherwise full-strength squad, there is just the one fitness problem for the Pescara boss Gianluca Grassadonia to be concerned about. Mattia Del Favero (Shoulder Injury) won’t be playing here.
Our assessment is that Pescara and Cosenza may well end up cancelling each other out here.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. We therefore see a close game with a score draw when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
