Brescia vs Roma
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 11 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Mario Rigamonti.
La Lupa failed to perform well after the lockdown was lifted, and the three-game losing run which they went through in the process, has seriously harmed their prospects of qualifying for the Champions League.
And now, they are even in danger of losing out on their Europa League spot as well. Both AC Milan and Napoli, who are below them at the moment, are in form, and Paulo Fonseca’s men have no luxury to relax. They are under pressure to deliver the three points this weekend.
It helps that they are taking on La Leonessa, who are inexperienced, as well as are relegation-battlers. On top of that, La Lupa have a great h2h record against them as well.
As such, expect Roma to secure the three points in this must-win fixture.
Brescia vs Roma: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nine of the previous thirteen wins had gone to Fonseca’s men.
- They had won the reverse fixture with a 3-0 scoreline.
- The biggest wins belongs to them as well – 5-0 scorecard, and that too twice.
- They are unbeaten against this opponent in the past ten years.
- Since 1993, the hosts have recorded a total of just two league wins at this stadium.
Brescia vs Roma: Prediction
Diego Lopez’s men lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against Torino. In the meantime, La Lupa won 2-1 at home, against Parma.
As things stand, Fonseca’s men are the overwhelming favorites. They are one of the best teams in the competition, and they are desperately trying to keep safe their European spot.
The likes of Napoli and AC Milan are chasing after them, and as such, they do not have any option to take things easy in this final phase of the campaign.
On the other hand, their counterparts are an inexperienced bunch of players – as they were not even present in the top flight in 2018-19. Moreover, at present, they are placed deep in the relegation zone, and have conceded the second-most number of goals in the competition.
They were also winless in 16 of their preceding 17 overall match-ups, and have been winless against this rival since 2010. They have also not scored a goal against this rival since 2011, while failing to keep clean sheets in the preceding five h2h encounters.
Taking into account these stats, expect a huge Roma win this weekend.
