Brescia ended their winning momentum in their last clash on the road to Salernitana when they suffered a loss with a close 1:0 result.
Honestly speaking, the hosts were a better squad from the start, having complete control over the situation, and deservedly took the lead in the Bogdna in the 24th. The guests were completely idealess in the offense in this encounter despite the possession they had, which was quite surprising, as they are quite effective lately, but occasional bad appearance is acceptable.
Brescia is at 10th spot in the general standings, being five points in deficit compared to the play-off placed Chievo.
Goalkeeper Andrenacci (1/0), defender Verzeni (5/0), midfielders Skrabb (10/0) and Spalek (22/2) should remain out injured. Defender Chancellor (20/0) should be out suspended.
Pordenone is having difficulties with their performance, as they are currently on a seven matches winless momentum, last time suffering a 1:0 loss to Empoli, in an away match.
They were severe underdogs even before the match, and having a player less on the pitch since the 6th minute, reduced their chances to zero for something noticeable here. Surprisingly, the guests withstood the pressure during the whole encounter and conceded the only one in the 88th when Chrzanowksi scored an own goal. Surely, they were left disappointed, as a point was just a couple of minutes away.
Pordenone currently holds 15th spot in the rankings, five points above play-out placed Cosenza.
The guests should miss defenders Bassoli (10/0), Berra (20/1), midfielder Pasa (12/0), as well as forwards Finotto (4/0), Morra (9/1) and Butic (21/1). Defender Falasco (19/1) is suspended for this one.
No room to relax
This one comes as a must-win for Brescia if they want to stay competitive for the play-off race. Surely, they possess the quality to win over Pordenone, and with the right approach, I simply don’t see any problems for them in taking all-three in this clash against a squad that simply isn’t appearing too competitive for a while now.
