Brescia plays host to AS Roma in Serie A soccer action from the Stadio Mario Rigamonti on Saturday afternoon.
Brescia comes into this match in 19th place on 21 points with a record of 5 wins, 6 draws and 20 losses following a 3-1 loss to Torino last time out. The lone action of the first half saw Brescia take the lead as Ernesto Torregrossa gave Brescia the lead in the 21st minute. Torino pulled a goal back thanks to Brescia’s own goal in the 48th and Torino would take the lead ten minutes after that. Brescia would have chances in the second half, but Torino would slam the door shut in the 86th minute with their third goal, putting the game out of reach for Brescia. Alfredo Donnarumma leads Brescia in scoring with 7 goals while Sandro Tonali has a team-high 6 assists this season. Jesse Joronen leads Brescia as the team’s top goalkeeper, conceding 1.85 goals per 90 minutes with 5 clean sheets in 27 league appearances this season.
AS Roma on the other side, enter this game in 5th, tied with Napoli on 51 points with a record of 15 wins, 6 draws and 10 losses following a 2-1 win over Parma last time out. In the win over Parma, Roma fell behind in the 9th minute from the penalty spot, and that goal held up until Henrik Mkhitaryan tied the game at one in the 43rd minute for Roma. Jordan Veretout gave Roma the lead in the 57th minute and despite Parma’s best efforts to get back into the game, Roma would hold onto the 2-1 lead to the finish line, taking the win and a key three points. Edin Dzeko leads Roma with 14 goals with 5 assists while Lorenzo Pellegrini has a team-high 9 assists this season. Pau Lopez leads Roma in goal, conceding 1.33 goals per 90 minutes with 5 clean sheets in 27 league appearances this season.
I’ll give Brescia credit for not giving up but the fact remains that they’re probably still going down at the end of the season. On the other hand, Roma hasn’t been good away from home since the restart, conceding at least two goals in each of the three road games, I think Roma wins this game, but I’m not paying this kind of juice and like I said, Roma’s defensive record on the road since the restart isn’t great. Instead, I’m going to side with both teams to score and over 2.5 goals as I could see a 2-1 game or something of the like at the end of this one.
