Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Sampdoria and Brescia take on each other at Stadio Luigi Ferraris in what is expected to be an interesting Serie B game. La Samp aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Pisa and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach the closing match of Saturday’s program. Simone Giordano serves a one-game ban due to the accumulation of yellow cards, while all Samuel Ntanda, Leonardo Benedetti, and Alex Ferrari are sidelined with injuries.
Le Rondinelle, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Como. Brescia produced two under-par displays in back-to-back losses at Cremonese and Como, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the home side. Both Nicolas Galazzi and Giacomo Olzer are out of contention through suspension, which certainly goes in favour of our earlier prediction. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
