Brescia and Sassuolo meet at Stadio Mario Rigamonti, in a match for the 7th round of Serie A. There is no recent record of direct clashes between these two teams, which have not played any games in the last 3 years. The last time they met was on 13‑04-2013, in a match that ended the final score: Sassuolo (1‑1) Brescia. Sassuolo presents considerable differences in its results at home and as a visitor, so in this match the home factor may be decisive.
The home team is currently in 15th position, with 6 points won, after 2 wins and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, he lost at home against Juventus by (1-2). In the last game, he lost out against Napoli by (2‑1). This is a team that presents similar results at home and abroad, so it is not usually affected by the home factor, since in the last 30 matches it records 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses as a visitor; against 10 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses in his stadium. In the last 10 games played at home for all competitions, Brescia won 7 and lost 3. His attack has scored regularly, as he scored goals in 5 of the last 6 games for this competition.
Brescia arrives at this unmotivated match, after a 2-1 defeat with Napoli, adding his second consecutive loss this season: Balotelli scored the team’s only goal. Despite the defeat in the previous round, coach Eugenio Corini must use the same tactical system, 4-4-2, with Donnarumma and Balotelli as the most advanced men: the first athlete mentioned is the best gunner of the team, with 4 goals scored. We emphasize that the local team has presented enormous defensive weaknesses, especially at home, since it has suffered an average of 3 goals per game. Out of this game due to physical problems are Magnani, Viviani and Ndoj.
The visiting team is currently in 13th position, with 6 points won, after 2 wins and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, he lost out against Parma by (1-0). In the last game, he lost at home against Atalanta by (1-4). This is a stronger team with the support of their fans, since in the last 30 matches they record 1 win, 4 draws and 10 losses as a visitor, with 13 goals scored and 28 suffered; against 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses in his stadium, with 34 goals scored and 15 suffered. In its last 10 away matches, Sassuolo records 1 win, 2 draws and 7 losses. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 5 of the last 6 games, so he has not presented great defensive strength, but his attack has scored regularly, since he scored goals in 5 of the last 6 games for this competition.
Sassuolo arrives at this unmotivated match, after a 1-4 defeat with Atalanta, adding his second defeat in this competition: Defrel scored the only goal of the team. We remember that the visitors lost all the games played in these conditions. Coach Roberto De Zerbi should keep the team 4-3-3, in favor of a ball possession style and search for flank space. The Italian Domenico Berardi is the top scorer of Sassuolo, with 5 goals scored. Out of this match is Rogério Silva, due to an injury.
