Brescia vs Lazio
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 5 January 2020
Kick-off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Mario Rigamonti.
Luis Alberto (3 goals and 11 assists) is surely a big miss, but league’s leading goalscorer Ciro Immobile (17 goals in 16 games) and an elite midfielder Milinkovic-Savic are fit and eager to extend Lazio’s winning run.

Brescia vs Lazio: Prediction
Brescia are still in the danger zone following a 1-1 draw vs Parma prior to midseason break. Eugenio Corini’s men were close to their fifth league win, but Alberto Grassi levelled the score with his first-ever goal for the Emilia-Romagna outfit.
The Rondinelle have upped their game since Corini’s return and claimed seven points from last four Serie A outings. With the W-D-L record of 4-2-11, they are 18th in the standings.
The hosts have recorded one win, one draw and six losses at Stadio Mario Rigamonti this season, averaging 1 goal scored per bout, whilst conceding 2.13. They fell to a 0-2 defeat to Sassuolo in their latest home fixture.
Midfielder Daniele Dessena is two months away from full fitness.
The high-flying Biancocelesti come into this game on the back of a 3-1 victory over Juventus in the Supercoppa. Unbeaten since Matchday six, team from the Italian capital stretched their winning streak in the league to seven games after a 2-1 comeback win over Cagliari.
With 36 points on the board and a game in hand, Simone Inzaghi’s side are one point above Roma and six points behind the leading duo.
Lazio have logged five wins, one draw and two losses on their travels, netting 1.75 goals per match and allowing 1.13 in return. They’ve won four of their last five away games.
Injured Marusic, Lukaku, Patric and Vavro are expected to miss the trip, whilst Lucas Leiva and Luis Alberto are banned.
Luis Alberto (3 goals, 11 assists) is surely a big miss, but league’s leading goalscorer Ciro Immobile (17 goals in 16 games) and an elite midfielder Milinkovic-Savic are fit and eager to extend their winning run – and I’m willing to back them.
With a 1-2, 1-3 hunch, I’m going for goals on both ends as well. 75 percent of Lazio’s road matches had BTTS – Yes and Brescia have found the back of the net in home games against the big dogs – Juventus (1-2) and Inter (1-2).
