SPAL vs Brescia Soccer Preview
SPAL will host Brescia in a relegation six-pointer as the bottom two teams face off at the Stadio Paolo Mazza in the Serie A on Sunday.
SPAL Match Form
Gli Spallini are enduring a difficult season, especially after finishing 13th in the previous campaign. They are currently on 9 points from 14 games and are 3 points off safety.
Leonardo Semplici’s men are a point behind Genoa in 18th place and will need to find their rhythm again if they want to save themselves from relegation. The gaffer will be pivotal if SPAL were to save themselves, considering he is about to enter his sixth year at the club.
Brescia Match Form
Coming to Brescia, they find themselves right at the bottom of the table. The Serie B winners from last season could not be having a worse season, after returning to the top flight for the first time since 2011.
They have picked up just 7 points so far, albeit playing a game less than their opponents. Eugenio Corini is under immense pressure to change the club’s fortunes quickly or risk a quick return to the second division, something the club would want to avoid.
However, both teams are absolutely struggling and will need a string of good results to get out of the relegation zone. The upcoming game assumes utmost importance because of the current league table and both teams will look for nothing less than 3 points from this fixture.
In terms of team news, SPAL will be without Mohamed Fares while Federico Di Francesco and Marco D’Alessandro are doubts for the game. Coming to their opponents, Brescia will be without Daniele Dessena with a broken ankle.
SPAL vs Brescia H2H and Betting Tips
Looking at head-to-head, both teams have met twice so far with SPAL emerging victorious on both occasions. Further, 9 goals were witnessed in those 2 games with SPAL scoring 6 to Brescia’s 3.
The home side are a tight unit in the back, shipping just 5 goals in their last 5 league games despite picking up just 2 points. On the other hand, Brescia have conceded 14 goals in their last 5 league games, while scoring just twice.
In fact, Corini’s men have failed to find the back of the net in their last 3 games, a big source of encouragement for the home side. Thus, a closely-contested game can be expected with SPAL picking up a 1-0 win in the end and boost their survival chances.
