In that game, Entella had 39% possession and 11 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. For Entella, the goalscorers were Marco Brescianini (24') and Andrea Schenetti (29'). For their opponents, Venezia got 19 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Luca Fiordilino (44') and Dennis Johnsen (53', 56') scored for Venezia.
It has been all too rare in recent games where Entella have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Entella have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 games, giving up 12 goals during that time. That pattern might not be sustained here, though.

- have not been beaten in the league by Brescia in their last 5 games.
- haven't won against Brescia in their previous 2 matches in the league.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 league matches.
After tasting defeat last time out to Cremonese in Serie B competition, Brescia will be hoping to turn things around here.

The stats don’t lie, and Brescia have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 10 goals in all. In defence, Rondinelle certainly have room for improvement.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Brescia:
- haven't won against Entella when having played them away from home in the previous 3 matches in the league.
- are without an away win for the past 3 league games.

Team News: Entella
Entella boss Vincenzo Vivarini will be happy not to have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash owing to a completely healthy squad to pick from.
Team News: Brescia
Brescia boss Pep Clotet has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Luca Pandolfi (Rupture of Outer Meniscus), Nikola Ninkovic (Traffic Accident) and Alessandro Semprini (Surgery) will miss out on this game.
We feel that Brescia and Entella should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. That is why we are leaning toward a hard-fought 1-1 score draw after 90 minutes.
