Brescia plays host to Spal in Serie A soccer action from the Stadio Mario Rigamonti on Sunday afternoon.
Brescia comes into this match in 19th place on 21 points with a record of 5 wins, 6 draws and 22 losses following a 6-2 loss to Atalanta last time out. In the loss to Atalanta, Brescia fell behind just two minutes into the game but Ernesto Torregrossa gave Brescia an equalizer just six minutes later. Atalanta would surge ahead 5-1 around the half hour mark with three goals in five minutes, and things would only get worse in the second half when Atalanta pushed ahead 6-1 with two goals in three minutes early in the second half. Nikolas Spalek would pull one back in the 83rd minute, but in the end the damage was done and Brescia once again went home empty-handed. Alfredo Donnarumma leads Brescia in scoring with 7 goals while Torregrossa’s goal put him in second with 6 goals this season. Sandro Tonali leads Brescia in the assist department with 7 helpers this season. Jesse Joronen is Brescia’s leading goalkeeper, conceding 1.85 goals per 90 minutes with 5 clean sheets in 27 league appearances this season.
Spal comes into this game in last place on 19 points with a record of 5 wins, 4 draws and 24 losses following a 4-0 loss to Inter Milan in their last match. In the loss to Inter Milan, Spal would fall behind in the 37th minute as Inter would score the lone goal of the opening half. Spal would then go 2-0 down in the 55th minute and Inter would push their lead to 3-0 just five minutes after that. Spal would concede a 4th in the 73rd minute and that was all Inter would need as Spal ended up with yet another defeat at full time here. Andrea Petagna leads Spal in scoring with 12 goals while Bryan Dabo has a team-high 3 assists this season.
I wouldn’t touch this game with a ten foot pole as both of these teams are getting relegated in the coming weeks and are not worth a play in any way shape or form. However, for the sake of a pick, while Brescia’s been getting beat up since the restart, a lot of their games came against the best of the best, and while Spal’s had issues of their own, getting shut out in three straight games by Genoa, Udinese and Sampdoria doesn’t give me a world of confidence. Brescia was able to pick up a couple of goals against Atalanta and maybe that can carry over to a win here. Brescia also won the reverse fixture earlier this season, so I’d lean Brescia’s way if anything but I’m not going near this one.
