Fiorentina host Brescia from the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Serie A soccer action on Monday afternoon.
Fiorentina come into this one in 13th on 30 points with a record of 7 wins, 9 draws and 10 losses after a scoreless draw with Udinese in their last match before Serie A halted due to the Coronavirus pandemic . In the draw against Udinese, Fiorentina played a clean match with no bookings but also didn’t get the result with no goals either. Fiorentina has 55% possession with 5 shots on goal to Udinese’s 2, but Udinese held an 11-7 lead on Fiorentina in regards to shot attempts. Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa are tied for the team-high with 6 goals this season while Chiesa, Erick Pulgat and Dalbert each have 3 assists for Fiorentina on the year. Bartlomiej Dragowski is Fiorentina’s top goaltender, conceding 1.23 goals per 90 minutes with 7 clean sheets in 26 clean sheets this season.
Brescia on the other hand, enter this match in last place in the Serie A table, parked in 20th place with 16 points and a record of 4 wins, 4 draws and 18 losses following a 3-0 loss to Sassuolo in their last match before the league pause. In the match against Sassuolo, Brescia fell behind just before half time, and things got worse when Sassuolo doubled their lead in the 61st minute. Brescia would try to get back into the match but Brescia would slam the door shut in the 75th minute with a 3rd goal, leaving Brescia empty-handed at full time once again. Mario Balotelli leads Brescia in scoring with 5 goals on the year while Sandro Tonali has a team-high 5 assists this season. Jesse Joronen is Brescia’s top goalkeeper, conceding 1.73 goals per 90 minutes with 4 clean sheets in 22 league appearances this season.
This is an interesting matchup as the first meeting resulted in a scoreless draw and Brescia’s been better on the road than they’ve been at home this season. However, Fiorentina is simply the better team here and Brescia just doesn’t have what it takes to keep pace with Fiorentina here. I’ll side with Fiorentina to win here and I’m expecting a win either 1-0 or 2-0 so I’ll package Fiorentina to win with the under 2.5 goals at decent plus money here.
