Sassuolo vs Pescara by JerryDrake
The winner of this knock-out match will have the right to face Milan at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the Round of 16. Some of you will remember that the greatest victory obtained by Di Francesco in Serie A has been with Milan last season. President of Sassuolo, Squinzi, will have to hope not to qualify as he is Milan fan.
What is the betting scheme to be followed in Coppa Italia? Usually in this round we have Serie A teams which are not really interested in qualifying, or are too concentrated in the following Serie A games, and Serie B teams which want to reach the latest stages of the tournament and face the top Italian teams.
For Sassuolo should be different this season. They are in a good position in Serie A (9th placed with 18 points) where they are undefeated since 7 rounds, if I well remember. In their first Coppa Italia match, Sassuolo have defeated Cittadella 4-1. It was August and the most of the regulars where in the starting eleven.
Pescara were losing 0-1 their derby with Virtus Lanciano and they scored the equalizer at minute 93. My opinion is that Pescara are in a dangerous position in Serie B and they will probably prioritize their match with Pro Vercelli as once again they have been criticized by their fans.
Sassuolo is a strong team, they can be relaxed and concentrated in this game. Should the trainer really opt for a turnover, this should also not be a real obstacle for their winning chances. Here the names of some reserves of Sassuolo, a team with a good squad: Floro Flores, Floccari, Brighi, Biondini, Antei, Terranova, Ariaudo. Score prediction: 2-1
Bet: Sassuolo, odds: 1.76 Pinnacle, stake: 10/10
