Relegation candidates Brescia will host Udinese at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti on Sunday in the Serie A.
Brescia Match Form
Brescia’s season back in the top flight has not gone according to plan. After 22 games they are second from last in the table. Brescia have accumulated just 15 points, which is the same as SPAL in the last place. Only goal difference has kept them off the foot of the table. They are four of points adrift of safety as it stands. Brescia’s last win came against Lecce in December. Since then, they have lost six games and drawn one.
In their last game, they visited Bologna at the Renato Dall’Ara. Brescia took the lead as Ernesto Torregrossa opened the scoring with a penalty in the first half. But Bologna battled back and equalized through Riccardo Orsolini. The game seemed to be headed for a draw, but Mattia Bani popped up with a late winner for Bologna. It was a crushing loss for Brescia, and it snatched a valuable point from them.
Time is running out for Brescia as they look to secure their safety. After playing Udinese, their next two games are against Juventus and Napoli, which are very tough matchups on paper. Udinese are out of form, and Eugenio Corini will want his side to take advantage. They have scored in five of their last six games, which is an improvement in the attacking numbers. A good defensive performance is an ingredient lacking now for Corini.
Udinese Match Form
Udinese are 15th in the table, but they have lost their last three Serie A games in succession. Before those three losses, Juventus beat them 4-0 in the Coppa Italia. They need to bounce back, and a game against relegation candidates Brescia is the perfect opportunity. Udinese’s last league win was a 3-0 result over Sassuolo. That win was their third in succession in the league.
Udinese have found it hard to score goals this season. They have netted just 19, and only bottom side SPAL have scored more. Despite a poor goal difference of -16, they are eight points clear of the relegation zone right now. Udinese have conceded 11 goals in their last four games. They hosted Inter in their last league outing and lost 2-0. Udinese had just one effort on target in the game and Inter were in complete control.
Both sides have met just once in the recent past, which was in September in the reverse fixture. Brescia claimed a surprise 1-0 win that day. Romulo got the only goal of the game and a strong defensive performance was on display.
Brescia vs Udinese Betting Tips
Neither side is in great shape, and this will be a close game. Both sides will score in this one, and the total goals should be over 2.5 in the match. However, Brescia have a great chance to pick up the win, and they should get the three points. The win will be huge for them, and Udinese will find it hard to get back to winning way
