Brescia vs Torino: Prediction

The Rondinelle welcome Torino to Stadio Mario Rigamonti with a new man in charge. Chairman Massimo Cellino sacked Eugenio Corini shortly after a 1-2 defeat away to Hellas Verona, and hired Fabio Grosso.

World Cup 2006 winner managed Juventus Primavera, Bari and Verona in the past. Winless since Matchday 4, Brescia are now second-to-last, levelled on points (7) with SPAL, albeit with a game in hand.

Chancellor, Tremolada, Dessena, Magnani, Torregrossa and Joronen will miss this tie due to injuries, Matri is suspended.

Two months ago, Torino was sharing the top with Inter and Juventus – now they’re sitting at 14th position with 11 pts to their name.

The Granata winless streak is stretched to six games following a narrow loss to Juve in Derby della Mole. Despite their bad run, Torino players are firmly behind coach Walter Mazzarri who was proud of his team’s performance against the reigning champions.

Everyone bar Bonifazi, who’s listed as doubtful, are fit to play.

Brescia have 0-1-3 record in their own backyard this season. They have an average of 1.25 goals scored per game at this venue, whilst conceding two per tie. 75% of their home games had BTTS – Yes.

Torino kicked off their away fixtures with a bang as they defeated Atalanta 3-2. Since then, they have lost four on the trot. They’re netting one goal per bout on their travels and allowing 2.20.

Both sides are optimistic ahead of this one – the hosts will be hoping for a fresh start under new boss, whilst Granata, with settled dressing room, are looking to turn their season around.

With Mario Balotelli on one side and Andrea Belotti on the other, I’m willing to take Both teams to score – Yes here and look for the Draw at full-time.

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