Brescia is welcoming Roma to Stadio Mario Rigamonti in round 32 in Italian Serie A.
Brescia has played 5 games since the restart, but they have won only 1 pf those 5 games. With only 21 points, Brescia is in 19th place, which is in the relegation zone, and with Brescia’s terrible form this season, they don’t stand a chance of getting out of the relegation zone. With 61 conceded goals, Brescia’s defense is one of the worst in Serie A, while their offense isn’t much better with only 28 scored goals. In their latest Serie A game against Torino on the road, Brescia has had 44% of ball possession, 5 corner kicks, 5 shots on goal, and 76% of the correct passes. A solid game for Brescia, but they still ended up losing this match 3-1. Donnarumma is Brescia’s top goalscorer with only 7 goals, while Torregrossa and Balotelli added 5 goals each. Tonali added 5 assists. Cistana and Bisoli are both injured. Brescia was the newcomer to Serie A, and I’m afraid they will be leaving Serie A when the season is over, and it might be better for Brescia to be relegated to the league where they will be dominant and where they will be winning games and points.
After three straight losses, Roma has finally won a game. A few days ago, Roma was facing Parma at home, and Roma was the better team in this match with 58% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, and high 88% of the correct passes. Roma was losing 0-1 in the 9th minute by a goal from a penalty kick, but with goals in the 43rd minute, and in the 57th minute, Roma has won this match 2-1. With this win, Roma was able to stay ahead of Napoli, in 5th place with 51 points, the same amount as Napoli has in 6th place. In their last 5 games since the restart, Roma has scored only 5 goals, while conceding 8 goals. Overall, Roma has been good in the attacking end this season with 56 scored goals, but their defense needs improvement, and I hope Roma makes necessary changes in the offseason to make that happen. Roma has conceded 43 goals in 31 games. Dzeko has scored 14 goals for Roma so far, while Mkhitaryan added 8 goals. Pellegrini added 9 assists. There are no injuries in Roma, but Smalling is still questionable. Getting Smalling back will be a huge boost for Roma’s defense, and at the right time since the season is nearing the end and Roma needs every point they can win to stay on the Europa League spot.
Brescia has won only 1 home game against Roma in the past, and despite losing 3 straight games, Roma is the better team here. Mathematically, Brescia still has a chance to get out of the relegation zone, but I don’t see it happening, and I think Roma will have two wins in a row after this match.
