Brescia vs Sassuolo: Prediction
After a six-game losing streak, the Rondinelle, with Eugenio Corini back on the bench, responded with massive back-to-back wins against fellow-strugglers SPAL (1-0) and Lecce (3-0). Nikolas Spalek, former Zilina man, came off the bench to score a goal and provide an assist for Chancellor in their first home win of the season.
As a result, Brescia are now sitting at 18th position in the standings, four points clear of last-placed Gli Spalini and a third straight win would move them out of the relegation zone.
Brescia have logged one win, one draw and five losses at home this season, averaging 1.14 goals scored per match, whilst shipping 2.14 per tie. 86% of their home matches had over 2.5 goals.
Dessena and Ndoj are on the treatment table for the hosts.
The Neroverdi remained 14th on the ladder as they held AC Milan to a goalless draw in an action-packed game at San Siro. That was their third stalemate on the trot and fourth in the last six league matches after nine-game spell without sharing the spoils (W3 -L6).
Roberto De Zerbi’s men have clearly upped their game recently and they will be hoping to snap the drawing streak with a win that would see them leapfrog Fiorentina, Verona and Bologna.
Sassuolo have one win, three draws and three defeats on the road, scoring Brescia’s numbers – 1.14 per match and conceding 1.57 goals per bout.
Chiriches, Consigli and Defrel are on the sidelines for the guests; Toljan is suspended.
Both sides are conceding well above league’s average numbers of 1.43 goals per game and with talents like Tonali, Spalek and Balotelli on one side and Boga, Caputo and Berardi on the other, I’m confident this won’t be a dull affair.
All things considered; we should see a thrilling match with goals on both ends. The hosts are dangerous again and Neroverdi have scored in 71% of their road matches – ten in last six league outings.
With a 2-1, 2-2 hunch, I’ll take over 2.5 as well.
