Abruzzo derby in Serie B. Well-known team Pescara host less famous Virtus Lanciano. The guests are playing their third straight Serie B tournament after the historical promotion reached in 2012.


Tonight Virtus Lanciano will play their 100th Serie B game and the best way to celebrate this match is to get the first historical victory in Pescara. All games played in Pescara with their regional rivals have finished all with a draw or with a Pescara win.


After two good straight wins Pescara have lost in Modena. The decisions of the referee did not help Pescara. The Biancazzurri finished the match down to 8 men. Because of the red and yellow cards received in Modena, Pescara will miss four suspended players tonight, included great striker Riccardo Maniero, defenders Pucino and Zuparic and midfield player Lazzari. Also Goalkeeper Fiorillo, midfielder Nielsen and forward Caprari will be out for injury while Bjarnason is still doubt.


Lanciano miss two strikers like Cerri and Thiam and reserve striker Turchi. Defender Mammarella is out. If D'Aversa wants to win this derby then he has to take advantage of the many suspensions at the home side. Lanciano must keep their solidity which allowed them to lose only 2 games out of 15. Midfielder Vastola has already scored five goals this season and he can be a good support for the strikers.


A derby in Italy is always tough, played with determination and this will be no exception. Because of the many missing players at the home side, and the determination of Lanciano, I select Lanciano with Asian Handicap “draw no bet”.
