The numbers tell their own story, and Brescia have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 18 goals in total. Defensively, Rondinelle have some weaknesses to address. Let’s see if that trend can be continued on into this next match.
Their previous form shows that Brescia:
- haven't beaten Lazio when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league games.
- are without a win away from home in their last 10 matches in the league. A poor run.

Team News: Lazio
Stefan Radu (Calf Injury), Senad Lulic (Ankle Surgery) and Lucas Leiva (Knee Problems) won’t be available for Lazio gaffer Simone Inzaghi.
It looks as if i Biancocelesti will probably use the 3-5-2 system this time, beginning the first half with Thomas Strakosha, Luiz Felipe, Francesco Acerbi, Patric, Djavan Anderson, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Marco Parolo, Luis Alberto, Adam Marusic, Ciro Immobile and Joaquin Correa.
Team News: Brescia
Brescia manager Diego López has multiple availability issues to deal with. Andrea Cistana (Ankle Surgery), Simon Skrabb (Shin bone bruise), Emanuele Ndoj (Unknown Injury) and Dimitri Bisoli (Patella rupture) are not ready for selection. Daniele Dessena is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We believe Rondinelle might play in a 4-4-2 formation with a starting lineup of Lorenzo Andrenacci, Alessandro Semprini, Ales Matějů, Daniele Gastaldello, Massimiliano Mangraviti, Jaromir Zmrhal, Rômulo Souza, Sandro Tonali, Nikolas Spalek, Ernesto Torregrossa and Florian Aye.
It’s pretty clear that Brescia will have a tough assignment to get a goal against a Lazio lineup who appear set to win well here.
Our selection here is for a comprehensive 3-0 winning scoreline for Lazio when all is said and done.
