Fiorentina is welcoming Brescia to Stadio Artemio Franchi in round 27 in the Italian Serie A.
Fiorentina is a good team, with good players, but they just can’t catch a break this season. With only 30 points, 32 scored goals, and 36 conceded goals, Fiorentina is in 13th place, huge 9 points away from the Europa League, but just 5 points away from the relegation zone. Fiorentina hasn’t lost any of their last 3 Serie A games, but that was before the season was paused and we are yet to see how the players will respond in their first game back. Vlahovic and Chiesa are Fiorentina’s top goal scorers with 6 goals each, while Pulgar added 4 goals. There are no injuries or suspensions for Fiorentina, but 5 players are in danger of being suspended if they receive another yellow card. In their latest Serie A game against Udinese on the road, Fiorentina was a slightly better team with 57% of ball possession, 9 corner kicks, 4 shot on target, and 84% of the correct passes. As many times before this game, Fiorentina was struggling in the attacking end, and this match ended in a 0-0 draw. I’ve mentioned that Fiorentina is closer to the relegation zone than the Europa League, but I’m confident that they will stay in Serie A because they are a good team and it’s only a matter of time before they start to play better soccer.
Brescia is a terrible, terrible team and they are in the last place of the Serie A with 16 points, 9 points below the safe zone. With 22 scored goals, Brescia is not the worst team in Serie A, but with 49 conceded goals Brescia is the second-worst defensive team. Brescia was also playing a friendly match earlier last week against Udinese and has lost 2-0. In their last Serie A game against Sassuolo on the road, Brescia has had only 30% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and 81% of the correct passes. Brescia has lost this game 3-0. Brescia hasn’t won any of their last 11 games in the Serie A while conceding a goal in every single game during that stretch. Mario Balotelli is the leading goal scorer for Brescia with 5 goals, while Torregrossa and Donnarumma added 4 goals each. There are no injures in Brescia, but Balotelli is suspended by the club and will most likely not be playing in this match. Brescia’s Serie A life will be short as they are the newcomer to Serie A, but they are not competitive in this league and they will be relegated to the Serie B, the league where they can dominate once again.
Fiorentina has dominated this series, especially at home. Brescia hasn’t won any of their last 12 games, 6 away games, and they have lost their last 4 straight games. Fiorentina is not in a good mood because of their bad form, but this match could be the confidence boost Fiorentina needs.
