Team News: Monza
Christian Gytkjaer (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury) and Mario Balotelli (Unknown Injury) won’t be available for Monza boss Cristian Brocchi.
Team News: Pescara
In an otherwise healthy group of players, there is only the one fitness problem for the Pescara gaffer Gianluca Grassadonia to contend with. Alessio Riccardi (Unknown Injury) won’t be in action.
It looks to us that Monza can and should dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
At the same time, Pescara could well find it tough to score a goal of their own although we do think it’s probable that they will be hitting back at some stage, too.
Our selection here is for a controlled 3-1 margin for Monza come full-time.
