Verona vs Pescara Match Preview

Pescara will be hoping to make the most of a large stroke of good fortune in their promotion play-off semi-final against Verona.

The club nicknamed the Dolphins originally looked set to finish fifth in this season’s Serie B table but were upgraded to fourth when third-placed Palermo were instead relegated to the third tier due to breaches of administrative regulations.

That meant Pescara skipped the initial round of the promotion play-offs and went straight into the semi-finals, in which they will meet Verona who have already won 4-1 against Perugia.

However, that success for Verona was not as easy as it appears. In a one-off match hosted by the Gialloblu on Saturday, the score was level at 1-1 after 90 minutes but Verona scored three goals in extra time as Brazilian defender Alan Empereur and former AC Milan and Italy striker Giampaolo Pazzini both completed doubles against opponents down to 10 men.

Verona and Pescara are now competing for a place in the promotion final against either Benevento or Cittadella, with the automatic berths in Serie A having been claimed by Brescia and Lecce.

Three points separated these clubs in the final table in Pescara’s favour and the visitors are backed to ensure the tie remains level heading into Sunday’s second leg.
