Hellas Verona vs Brescia: Prediction
The Scaligers have moved up in the standings following a surprising 1-0 win over Parma. In what was a one-sided second half, Verona survived Gialloblu’s attacks to secure a victory. With three wins, three draws and four losses, Verona are sitting at 11th position. The newcomers have the best defensive record in the league with just 8 goals conceded thus far, but they struggle to score goals.
Pazzini, Bocchetti, Badu, Tupta, Dawidowicz, Bessa are on the sidelines.
18th-placed Brescia fell to a 1-2 home defeat at the hands of Inter Milan in the previous round. After underwhelming first-half performance, Eugenio Corini’s team looked better after the break, attacked in numbers and forced the Nerazzuri to defend. Skriniar’s own goal halved the deficit, but they coundn’t find a late equalizer. The Rondinelle’s winless streak is now extended to five games.
Magnani, Chancellor, Dessena, Tremolada, Torregrossa and 1st choise goalkeeper Joronen are out injured for the guests.
Hellas Verona have win-draw-loss record of 1-2-2 at Marc’Antonio Bentegodi this season. They’re scoring and conceding the same amount of goals at this venue – 0.60 per bout. Less than three goals have been scored in all of their home games.
Brescia have two wins and three losses on the road. The Rondinelle have an average of 0.80 goals scored per game, whilst conceding 1.20. Three of their five games away from home had under 2.50 goals. The guests are projected to shift to 3-5-2 formation this weekend.
Even though these two sides played out two highly entertaining games last season, I just can’t see them netting three goals or more here.
The hosts are the most underish team in the league with an average of 1.50 goals on their games and Brescia’s matches on the road are not action-packed either. Therefore, I’m going with Under 2.5 here and I’ll pick Verona in DNB Market, hoping for a sneaky 1-0 win.
