Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Stadio San Vito-Luigi Marulla will host the Serie B playout clash between Cosenza and Brescia. Cosenza failed to win the previous seven league fixtures and given their difficulties in front of goal, a low-scoring affair is on the horizon in the first leg. Mauro Zarate is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Le Rondinelle, on the other hand, managed to avoid automatic relegation to the Serie C. Brescia are not regarded as good travellers and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. Midfielder Massimo Bertagnoli misses out with an ACL injury, while defender Andrea Papetti faces race against the clock to be fit for Thursday’s clash. You should know that the two teams played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg.
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.
