Brescia vs Juventus Serie A Predictions

Serie A Brescia vs Juventus
Brescia vs Juventus Serie A

The match is over.
Score: 1-2.

As the Serie A season starts to take shape and starts to show where teams will likely go over the course of the season, could this be a turning point for Brescia and can this be the moment that Juventus under Maurizio Sarri find their feet?

Predictions

On paper, this should be a win for the away side but as we all know, this is a different Juve side and after dropping a two-goal lead against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, you can’t rely on them as much as in previous years.

Brescia have started slowly in their return to Serie A, winning their opening game of the season but struggling to pick up points thereafter.

Juve, on the other hand, started the season quite well but in recent weeks have dipped off ever so slightly with draws against Fiorentina in Serie A and Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Brescia’s opening game victory came against Cagliari while their next losses came at home to AC Milan and Bologna in a 4-3 thriller.

Juve’s opening game win came against Parma away from home and their next game was a brilliant 4-3 win at home to Napoli, a fortuitous one, but their 0-0 against Fiorentina was the a spanner in their domestic form.

The away side will be favourites for this game and rightly so, but never ever count out Brescia. They could spring a huge surprise, but it’s probably smarter to back a Juventus win with both teams to score. 3-1 isn’t out of the question.

Betting Tips

Juve are overwhelming favourites for this clash so an away win carries very little risk. This Brescia side, containing Mario Balotelli, could always open the scoring before Juve peg them back, which makes this bet among the best online betting odds for this round of action. 888sport have it as 19/2.

Much like picking Juve to win, this one seems quite likely too given how the previous games have gone. Brescia themselves have scored four goals in three games including three in their last fixture against Bologna and Juventus have scored five in three so both teams are capable of scoring, but the Old Lady are just simply stronger and also have the small matter of Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks, so to go with tis bet is a smart option, with it rated at 41/20 by 888sport.
