Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Brescia take on Como at Stadio Mario Rigamonti in what is expected to be a close Serie B encounter. Le Rondinelle are undefeated in the previous four league matches, but they need to start winning on a regular basis if they are to book their place in the playoffs. Both Emanuele Ndoj and Mohamed Fares are sidelined with injuries, but they should be the only absentees in the home team.
Como, on the other hand, have been in fine form of late, with the team winning four of their last five league fixtures. Interim boss Cesc Fabregas is doing a good job with Como, but beating Brescia on the road is easier said than accomplished. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two sides are going to share the spoils in the Serie B round 17. Como defender Federico Barba is banned for the away team.
Highlighted Team (Brescia):
Hosting their rivals at Stadio Mario Rigamonti, the stadium with the capacity of 16,743, Brescia are Italian team founded back in 1911 under the name of Brescia Football Club. Le Rondinelle are well known for their blue and white shirts, but white is dominant colour in their away kit.
Atalanta are considered one of the club’s fiercest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Derby of Lombardy. The Stadio Mario Rigamonti outfit have rivalries with the likes of Inter, Hellas Verona and Cremonese as well. Roberto Baggio, who has 56 caps with the Italy national football team, is considered the most famous footballer who played for Brescia.
Robi scored 45 goals in 95 appearances in the Serie A for le Rondinelle. It has to be noted that the likes of Andrea Pirlo, Gheorge Hagi, Pep Guardiola, Luca Toni, Luigi Di Biagio and Dario Hubner were part of Brescia in the past as well. However, Mario Rigamonti is the club’s biggest legend as he died in the Superga air disaster back in 1949.
