Relegation-threatened Brescia welcome Roma to the Stadio Mario Rigamonti, hoping to bring a two-game winless run in the Serie A H2Hs to an end (D1, L1).
The hosts have won just one of 14 Serie A matches this calendar year (D4, L9), as they enter the round trailing 17th-placed Lecce by seven points. A genuine lack of defensive quality has seen Brescia keep a clean sheet only once in 14 league games since the turn of the year, conceding over 1.5 goals in ten of the other 13. In fact, Diego Lopez’s side lament the division’s second-worst defensive record after allowing 61 goals on an average of 1.96 goals conceded per Serie A fixture. Against the backdrop, ‘Le Rondinelle’ have shut out Roma in three of their last six competitive H2Hs held at this venue, shipping one goal per match in two of the other three.
Meanwhile, the visitors brought a three-game losing run in Serie A to a halt with a 2-1 home win over Parma last time out, which now means that none of their ten previous league matches has ended in a draw (W4, L6). Interestingly, six of their last eight Serie A results (win/loss) have seen the winner on the day score precisely two second-half goals, with four of them seeing the winning side come from behind to seal three points. Even though they’ve lost four of their last five Serie A trips (W1), the ‘Giallorossi’ can take some confidence from the fact that they’ve accrued 20 of possible 24 points against the sides occupying the last five places ahead of this round (W6, D2).
