Serie A Betting Prediction: Brescia vs Juventus

Posted by

The reigning champions Juventus are trying to keep up the pace with Inter when they visit Brescia tonight, so have a look at our Serie A Betting Prediction for this encounter. Juventus dropped points at Fiorentina two rounds ago while Inter is the only team with maximum points thus far. The Old Lady cannot afford to lose more points here. Brescia, on the other hand, surprised Udinese on the road in the previous match, but are big underdogs in this clash with Juve.

Brescia Team News and Latest Form

A precious Serie A away win over Udinese made it Brescia’s third 1-0 result of the season – two in their favour. Each of their four league games have been decided by a single-goal margin, which has been the case in eight of Brescia’s last ten SA games, dating back to their previous stint in 2010/11.

The concern for Brescia is that they haven’t won consecutive Serie A games since October 2010. Furthermore, they have failed to beat Juventus in the league since December 2002 – a run of seven winless matches.

Brescia await the much-anticipated debut of hometown boy Mario Balotelli with goal-laden expectations, more than four years after his last SA goal. Six of Brescia’s last seven Serie A home matches have witnessed goals at both ends. Brescia have failed to score a first-half goal in 75% of their SA games this season.

Juventus Team News and Latest Form

Juventus remain unbeaten in Serie A (W3, D1) after a tight 2-1 home win over Hellas Verona. Nervy second-half performances remain the Bianconeri’s primary issue though, with five of their six competitive goals conceded this season arriving after the break.

Though a 2018/19 title race won with weeks to spare might be a factor, Juventus have won just once in their last six SA road trips (W1, D2, L3), and they have failed to score in three of the previous four. This opponent traditionally guarantees a lot of goalscoring joy though, with Juventus leading 2-0 at the break in four of the last six SA H2Hs.

With Cristiano Ronaldo ruled out, Juventus will hope that Gonzalo Higuain comes to the party – he has 37 goals and two assists in 39 Serie A games under Maurizio Sarri. Juventus have scored a first-half goal in three of their last four SA matches, but none in their previous five.

Alongside Ronaldo, Maurizio Sarri will be without Giorgio Chiellini (knee), Douglas Costa (muscle), Mattia De Sciglio (thigh), and Mattia Perin (shoulder). 

Brescia vs Juventus Head to Head

Juventus won seven of the previous ten H2H encounters (D2, L1), but the latest duel was eight years ago when Juve won 2-1. The Old Lady had more trouble at Stadio Mario Rigamonti than at home as Juve managed to win only three games out of eight (L2).

Brescia vs Juventus Serie A Betting Prediction

The odds on Juventus’ win jumped from 1.30 (-333) to 1.57 (-175) following the news that Cristiano Ronaldo will miss this clash. Still, Juventus is a much better team, and I am backing them to get three points, even though it’s not going to be easy. My Serie A Betting Prediction for this duel is Juventus to win at 1.57, but if you are a braver punter, you can try with HT/FT Draw and Juve Win at 4.33 (+333). Reason for this additional bet is the one that Juventus drew the opening half in each of their last three games.
