Livorno vs Brescia
Italian Serie B
Date: Monday, 15 April 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Armando Picchi (Livorno).
Livorno are struggling badly coming into Monday’s clash with table-toppers Brescia at Stadio Armando Picchi.
The hosts fell into the red zone after a streak of three successive defeats in Serie B. They shipped at least three goals in each of losses to Perugia, Cremonese and Cittadella.
The latest of them was also the toughest as Roberto Breda’s men fell 4-0 away at seventh-placed Cittadella last Saturday.
The hosts will face hard times bouncing back on Monday against arguably the strongest team in the division.
Brescia took ten out of possible twelve points in last four league rounds and now sit alone at the top of the standings following Lecce’s slip-up away at Cremonese in the previous round.
Livorno vs Brescia: Head-to-head
He hosts will completely rely on the head to head tradition here as it greatly favours them over Brescia.
Livorno won 10, drew 5 and lost just 2 of 17 meetings with La Leonessa.
Livorno were particularly dominant in the history of home clashes with Brescia with a record of 6 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat in 8 matches.
La Leonessa, however, claimed a 2-0 victory when teams met each other in this term of Serie B.
Livorno vs Brescia: Prediction
The head to head record might count for little here as the obvious gulf in quality between these two outfits should be notable here. Looking at Livorno’s recent form, we just can’t imagine a scenario in which they would hold league’s most lethal attacking line here.
La Leonessa own competition’s best attacking record with 62 goals in 30 league games. They are up against a side which allowed 10 goals in three consecutive defeats.
Even though the hosts are desperate for points here, we have to back the away win at 2.10. Brescia to score more than one goal in the match is an ideal back-up option at the same odds.
