Brescia welcomes Torino in a match from the 12th round of the Italian Serie A
Brescia welcomes Torino in a match from the 12th round of the Italian Serie A. This sounds as a good moment to take a look at this fixture in our football prediction tips.
Just like many other newcomers, Brescia are having a hard time since their promotion to the elite division. Right now they are 19th in the league with just 7 points, locked in a fight for survival from the beginning of the campaign. In 10 matches played so far in the league, Brescia have won just twice.
One draw and four losses – this is how Brescia are performing in the Serie A lately. As we could have expected, this led to a managerial change in the club. Because of his poor results, Eugenio Corini was sacked and replaced with the 2006 world champion with Italy Fabio Grosso. For Grosso the match against Torino is going to be a debut. For the last time he was coaching Hellas Verona in the Serie B.
In the previous round Brescia visited Hellas Verona and suffered a 1-2 defeat. It will be remembered with the racist insults towards Mario Balotelli, who tried to leave the pitch. He also scored Brescia’s only goal in the match.
Torino are still struggling since the start of the campaign, being 14th in the league with 11 points won so far. Last season the Bulls qualified for Europa League, but now it looks like the manager Walter Mazzarri can’t find the right approach.
It’s pretty clear from the way Torino is performing in their last five games – two draws and three losses. In the previous round the Bulls hosted Juventus in the derby, but lost with 0-1. Matthijs de Ligt scored the only goal in the game.
That’s our football prediction tips for the Serie A game between Brescia and Torino on Saturday. Can Fabio Grosso make a successful debut for the hosts? We will see.
