On October 9 2016 at 11:30 in the regular game of the 8th matchday of the Italian Serie B at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi Verona play against Brescia.
After Verona failed in the Serie A in the previous season they were relegated to the Serie B. After that they seemed to improve their performance and started to trey their best to get back to the elite division. Sixteen points in the first 7 games of the season let them take the second position in the standings with two points below the leader. In the latest games Verona lost to Benevento 2:0, outplayed Avellino 3:1, SPAL 1:3 and Ternana 0:3.
After Brescia relegated to the Serie B in 2010/11 season, they never got even close to coming back to the elite division. In the current season they make too many mistakes and are likely to end up in the middle of the table of the Serie B which is usual for them. In the latest games Brescia drew Perugia 1:1, Carpi 2:2, Bari 1:1, lost to Pisa 1:0 and won against Cittadella 0:3. Consequently, after 7 games played Brescia have 10 points and take the 7th place in the standings.
In the history of head-to-heads of the teams Brescia have small advantage in victories. Last time the teams met in 2013 and Verona won 4:2. Verona have a lot of experience in the Serie A and are better than most of the teams of the Serie B. They are one of the leaders of the league and the favorites of the forthcoming game. We think that Verona are going to win at home and continue their winning series.
Prediction for the match: Verona to win.
