The fate of Brescia is already sealed in Serie A with relegation woes. The side will be looking to end their poor run in their 2019/20 campaign at the Maria Rigamonti Stadium. The match for the season finale scheduled for Saturday with kickoff at 7 pm.
Despite losing three games in a row to the end of the season, the Bluccerchiati will enjoy another season in the top-flight season. This is unlike their counterparts who face immediate relegation in Serie A.
Claudio Ranieri took over the side last year in October with the side struggling in relegation battles. Fast forward months later, the side escaped relegation woes. The side is currently 15th on the table with a win this weekend could elevate the side13th on the table.
Ranieri got the side above the dotted line in time with a five winning streak in six matches since the start of the month. The side has fallen victim to Juventus, AC Milan, and Genoa in their last encounters in the league.
Only relegated side SPAL has performed worse in the league in this league. However, revenge will be on the minds of the relegated side following their 5-1 thrashing in January courtesy of Fabio Quagliarella’s impressive performance.
Lecce remains the only side to have shipped the most goals this season that Brescia. This is after coming from back to back defeats to side Lecce, Lazio, and Parma. It remains a doubt whether the side can pull through.
