Considering the last five matches of the Blues, they won all of them against, Hertha BSC, Monaco, Nice, Virtus Entella and Frosinone. Among them, last four matches were club friendlies. So, they are in quite charming form.
On the other hand, team Pescara won three games out of their last five where they lost against Celta de Vigo by 2 – 1 and a match against Perugia was cancelled. Without their last competition against Frosinone, rest four were club friendlies and last match was the part of Coppa Italia.
However, Napoli is currently standing 2nd in position on Serie A point table and on the other side, Pescara has just promoted to the Serie A from Serie B this season. So, the Little Donkeys are far better condition than the Dolphins. But one thing is needed to remember that the match will be hosted in Pescara’s home venue but it would probably not help them much against two times Serie A winner. So, the prediction is – Napoli 3 – 1 Pescara.
