Brescia vs Cagliari: Match Preview

Brescia slipped to 19th position on the Serie A table following a humiliating 1-5 loss at Sampdoria, their third in last four league matches.

Just as we predicted, Rondinelle struggled massively without suspended duo Andrea Cistana – Sandro Tonali and Eugenio Corini must be thrilled to have them back for this one. With 14 points on the board, Brescia are levelled with Genoa and one point off of Lecce.

The Rondinelle have dreadful home record with one win, one draw and seven defeats at the Mario Rigamonti Stadium, netting a goal per match and conceding 2.11 in return. They fell to a 1-2 defeat to Lazio in most recent home fixture.

Daniele Dessena (6 games, 0 goals) is still out for the hosts, Dimitri Bisoli (19/0) is banned on yellow card accumulation.

Cagliari’s poor form continued as they slumped to their fourth consecutive league loss to AC Milan (0-2) and suffered a heavy Coppa Italia defeat at Inter (1-4) on Tuesday.

Despite poor results of late, the Sardinians are still sixth in the Serie A standings with plenty of ambitious sides breathing down their necks. Rolando Maran wants his players to erase everything, start again and put this period behind them.

Il Sardi have logged three wins, four draws and two defeats away from Sardegna Arena, scoring and conceding goals at the same rate – 1.44 per match. They have picked up five poins from last five away games (2-1-2).

The visiting side will be without Cacciatore (11/0), Mattiello (2/0) and Pavoletti (1/0); Ceppitelli (9/2) is questionable for the trip to the mainland.

Brescia vs Cagliari: Prediction

Brescia are looking to make amends for Sampdoria disappointment, whilst Cagliari will be eager to rediscover their old form.

With Sandro Tonali and Mario Balotelli (3 goals in last 6 games) on one side and Joao Pedro (11 goals in 19 matches) and Radja Nainggolan on the other, I’m confident we’ll seen an interesting game of football and goals on both ends – and that will be my main bet here.

I won’t be surprised if they cancel each other out and 1-1 or even 2-2 scorelines sounds plausible to me.
