Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Pisa v Brescia match are shown here - plus the latest match odds.
Pisa will be looking for another win after the 1-2 Serie B triumph over Südtirol-Alto Adige.
In that match, Pisa had 57% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. The scorer for Pisa was Mattia Valoti (45', 50'). Sudtirol had 10 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. Emanuele Pecorino (61') scored for Südtirol-Alto Adige.
Pisa have been conceding pretty frequently recently, but they have also managed to score goals themselves. Over their last 6 matches, Pisa have been punished defensively in 5 of them as well as scoring in 5 of those games.
A look at their previous results shows us that Pisa:
- have not been beaten in the league by Brescia in their previous 4 games.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Cremonese in Serie B action, Brescia and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that game, Brescia had 38% possession and 15 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. For their opponents, Cremonese got 25 attempts at goal with 5 on target. Luca Ravanelli (17'), Massimo Coda (32') and David Okereke (89') scored for Cremonese.
It is worth noting that Brescia have failed to get amongst the goals over their last 6 clashes, netting the poor return of only 4. In those matches, Rondinelle have also seen the collective goal aggregate of their opponents equal 10. We will have to find out if that trend will be continued on here.
Pre-game facts show that Brescia:
- have not emerged victorious against Pisa in games played away from home for the previous 4 matches in the league. They really have not been travelling well at all.
- have not won away from home in their last 2 league games.

A sum of 18 goals were scored between the two sides in these games, with 9 of them from Nerazzurri and 9 created by Rondinelle. That’s an average goals per game figure of 3.

That time, Brescia had 50% possession and 11 shots at goal with 3 on target. Their only player on the scoresheet was Dimitri Bisoli (53').

Team News: Pisa
Marco D'Alessandro (Collateral ligament injury) and Matteo Tramoni (Cruciate ligament surgery) are unavailable for Pisa manager Alberto Aquilani. Marius Marin will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
It looks as if Nerazzurri could line up in a 4-2-3-1 system this time with Nicolas, Tomas Esteves, Simone Canestrelli, Maxime Leverbe, Pietro Beruatto, Andrea Barberis, Mattia Valoti, Lisandru Tramoni, Gabriele Piccinini, Ernesto Torregrossa and Stefano Moreo.
Team News: Brescia
Owing to a fully healthy group available to choose from, the Brescia manager Rolando Maran has no fitness worries to report coming into this match.
We’re of the thinking that Rondinelle seem most likely to make use of a 4-3-1-2 system, starting Luca Lezzerini, Andrea Papetti, Andrea Cistana, M. Mangraviti, Lorenzo Dickmann, Massimo Bertagnoli, Tommie van de Looi, Mohamed Fares, Giacomo Olzer, Birkir Bjarnason and Gabriele Moncini.
We believe that Brescia may find it difficult to hit the back of the net against this Pisa side who we reckon should score one, at least.
We therefore see a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 winning score for Pisa at the end of the match.
