Serie B: Pescara warn Zeman

Pescara beat Novara today, but President Daniele Sebastiani announced he could fire Coach Zdenek Zeman anyway.

The tactician’s status has been in the balance for several weeks after a series of setbacks, often fumbling strong leads.

Gaston Brugman got the only goal in today’s 1-0 win.

The problems emerged after Zeman’s Press conference yesterday, in which he confessed that he had tried to hand in his resignation in September.

Despite taking a 62nd minute lead at Cesena this evening, then going back in front after Lamin Jallow’s equaliser, a late collapse saw Zeman’s side concede in the 81st, 87th and 95th minutes.

Sampdoria swept past Zdenek Zeman’s Pescara with a Dawid Kownacki brace, plus an assist, to set up a Coppa Italia meeting with Fiorentina on December 13.

It had been a rough day for Serie A sides in this tournament, as Cagliari were knocked out by Serie C side Pordenone and SPAL fell to Cittadella.

Samp were determined not to follow the same path and took a 2-0 lead within 10 minutes thanks to 20-year-old Poland international Kownacki.

He scored the first, tapping in from close range, then set up the second for Gaston Ramirez’s header.

Which records could Benevento break?

Benevento have lost their opening 13 Serie A games, breaking the record for worst start in a top five European league.

The newly-promoted side lost to Sassuolo in the last minute yesterday, to break a record set by Manchester United in the 1930-31 season.

Unfortunately for the Streghe, there are still several unwanted records they could accumulate before the end of the season.

The worst ever points total in the Italian top flight was Catania with 12 in the 1983-84 season, but that was in a 16-team Serie A with two points for a win.
