Juventus vs. Brescia Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
13 February 2020
Sunday 16 February
Juventus Stadium – Serie A
Juventus are in a sticky run of form, following their second consecutive away defeat in a row. Can they turn things around against Brescia? Brescia meanwhile are struggling at the foot of the table.
Juventus beat Brescia 2-1 in their first meeting earlier in the season. Alfredo Donnarumma opened the scoring at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti, before a Jhon Chancellor own goal and a goal from Miralem Pjanic gave the Old Lady the victory.
Juve will be without Douglas Costa, as the injury-stricken winger once again pulled up with a muscle problem. The Bianconeri will also be without right-back Danilo.
Brescia meanwhile are without Romulo, who is out with a dead leg.
Juventus vs. Brescia Preview and Predictions
Juventus are showing signs that they might just be losing their eight-year grip on the title. They meekly surrended a 1-0 lead to Verona, who overturned it into a 2-1 win. With Lazio and Inter now narrowing in, and only a single point separating all three sides, Juve could be in trouble.
Expect the Bianconeri to fire back against Brescia however, and the Old Lady should secure a much-needed victory against the Rondinelle. They’re 1.17 to get the victory, with Brescia out to 18.50 and even the draw a big price at 7.50.
Brescia travel to Juventus without a win since December 14, when they beat Lecce 3-0. That dire run has left Diego Lopez’s side only a point clear of the bottom of the Serie A table, and six points from safety. They’ve lost five of the eight games since their last victory, conceding 16 goals in the process. Only Genoa and Lecce have conceded more than Brescia’s 42 goals, and only SPAL and Udinese have scored fewer than their 21.
Cristiano Ronaldo to score anytime at 1.29
The Portuguese has netted in his last 10 Serie A appearances and should have little trouble doing likewise against Brescia. In fact, in those last 10 games, Ronaldo has plundered 15 goals.
Over 2.5 goals at 1.44
Juventus had struggled to score goals at home before the winter break, but now they have seemed to have found another gear, and they could score several against a Brescia side who have the second-worst defensive record in Serie A.
