Bottom of the league Pescara are all-but relegated as they’ve lost 21 of their 29 games this term and are 10 points from safety. Milan, on the other hand, are moving up the table as they’ve won five of their last seven to go up to 7th, now just two points off their city rivals in 5th.
Unsurprisingly, seven of Pescara’s nine points this term have come from their 14 home games (they actually have 12 points but three of these were awarded rather than earned). They managed a 2-2 draw at home to Napoli on the opening day of the season, but since then they’ve lost all four visits from top-eight sides, though they managed to score in three of these and didn’t trail at the break in any.
Milan have won only two of their last seven on the road but they’ve generally been pretty reliable when travelling to the lesser sides as they’ve won three of their four trips to bottom-six sides to date. However, they kept only one clean sheet in these games, whilst they’ve only led at the break in three of their 14 away matches this term and as a result we’re backing Milan to win and both teams to score as well as Draw/Milan Half Time/Full Time.
