Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Brescia and Cremonese go head to head at Stadio Mario Rigamonti in what is expected to be an entertaining Serie B game. Brescia did well to beat Chievo at the weekend, with the team putting an end to their six-game winless run in the Italian second tier. The Biancazzurri aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Cremonese. Both Cistana and Karacic remain in the recovery room, but there no suspended players in the home team.
Le Tigri, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Venezia and Lecce in the previous two league fixtures. Cremonese are low on confidence ahead of Saturday’s clash, and given Brescia’s display in the triumph over Chievo, home win should be considered. Ravanelli is banned for the visiting team, while Deli remains sidelined with injury.
Highlighted Player (Birkir Bjarnason):
The 28-year-old Icelandic central midfielder Birkir Bjarnason bearing a striking nickname Thor in his homeland is a footballing nomad, having played for no less than seven clubs in less than ten years of his professional careers.
After spells in Belgium and Italy, the Iceland midfielder moved to FC Basel in 2015 to amass 29 Swiss Super League appearances and add 10 goals in his club’s title-winning campaign. Following a successful season at club level, the versatile midfielder Birkir Bjarnason, who is equally apt to perform as a striker, made striking appearance during the Euro 2016 in France. His commanding appearances made him a key player for the minnows Iceland as they knocked England out to reach the quarter finals of the tournament.
Despite heavy summer interest from several English sides, Bjarnason remained with the Swiss champions and is expected to play a key role in their Champions League campaign.
