Brescia vs Roma pre-match information
I Giallorossi put a three-game losing streak behind them to beat Parma 2-1 on Wednesday with goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jordan Veretout sealing a comeback victory for Paulo Fonseca’s men.
Roma remain in fifth place, level on points with Napoli and two ahead of seventh-placed AC Milan.
They’ll face a Brescia side fighting for their lives having won just one of their five games since returning to action — a 2-0 victory over Verona wedged between 6-0 and 3-1 losses to Inter Milan and Torino, respectively.
Diego Lopez’s men are 19th in the table, seven points adrift of 17th-placed Lecce with just seven games left in which to save their skins.
Brescia & Roma’s previous line-ups:
- Brescia (vs Torino): Joronen; Sabelli, Papetti, Mateju, Martella; Spalek, Tonali, Dessena, Bjarnason; Donnarumma, Torregrossa.
- Roma (vs Parma): Lopez; Mancini, Cristante*, Ibanez; Peres, Diawara, Veretout, Spinazzola; Pellegrini, Dzeko, Mkhitaryan*.
Roma will be without their match-winner from last time out, Mkhitaryan, and Bryan Cristante due to suspension. Chris Smalling and Juan Jesus are both out with thigh injuries while Davide Santon is doubtful.
Player to watch:
It’s looking increasingly unlikely that Brescia will be able to save themselves from the mess their in. However, regardless of what happens to Le Rondinelle, talented midfield youngster Sandro Tonali will certainly be using the rest of the season to put himself in the shop window.
The 20-year-old leads the way at Brescia in terms of assists (6), chances created (56) and successful dribbles (35) in Serie A during 2019/20, while he also ranks third and fourth respectively when it comes to interceptions (31) and tackles (33).
This fine form has not only seen him called up to the senior Italian national team but has also attracted the attention of some of the nation’s biggest clubs. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, AC Milan have joined rivals Inter in the race for his signature.
