Why Brescia can beat Cosenza
Brescia’s Serie B status hangs in the balance when they host Cosenza Calcio in Thursday’s relegation playoff final at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti. The Little Swallows were beaten 1–0 in the first leg, and will face demotion in the third leg if they cannot reverse the loss.
After finishing 16th in Serie B, Italian coach Daniele Gastaldello was aware of the challenge facing him in both fixtures with Cosenza, who finished the regular season in 17th place. Since his appointment in February, Gastaldello had been intent on steering the team away from relegation, but the 39-year-old led the Little Swallows to three wins in 14 league games in the regular season. Now, Brescia’s 6-6-7 home record of 17 goals will be tested in this do-or-die game.
Six of the last nine meetings between the clubs in Brescia have been wins for the hosts, giving the Little Swallows a psychological edge. Florian Ai would like to add to his tally of eight goals; It is the same with Falvio Bianchi (4) and Giacomo Olzer (3). Dimitri Bisoli is also looking to add to his tally of three goals and four assists.
Massimo Bertagnoli, Federico Pace, Andrea Papetti and Alexander Zallo are absent from this game due to their injuries. Federico Viviani is also ruled out as he has served his suspension. Brescia will have to match his season averages of 11.7 total shots, 1.4 big chances, 4.5 corner kicks.
Why Cosenza can beat Brescia
Cosenza is aware of his poor performance at Thursday’s opponents, even though he struck first in a 1-0 win over the visiting side. However, Cosenza will need to suit up on their trip, as their 2-6-11 road record is the worst in Serie B and they will be tested in this match.
Italian coach William Violi took charge of the Wolves in November, scoring a slightly better points per game than Gastaldello. Violi’s team have their work cut out for them to get results in Brescia due to the competition’s worst record, with two wins on the road all season. Cosenza has scored only 10 goals in 19 matches played abroad.
Cosenza’s first win in the last nine fixtures with Brescia came in the first leg. Despite a 43% ball possession rate, Cosenza took advantage of his total of 11 shots and three corner kicks to score the only goal of the game. Marco Nasti’s effort in the 70th minute put the Rossoblu ahead by a goal in both legs.
Lupi is not keen on coming out on top on Thursday having recently lost in their trip to Brescia – losing 2-1 in early May. However, Cilani could be looking at his 2022 fixtures with Brescia, where he forced a stalemate with the Lions.
Only Mauro Zarate is absent for Cosenza, who is dealing with a ruptured cruciate ligament. Violi will look to the forwards and midfielders of the squad to lead the attack. Marcos Nasti leads the team with five goals. Christian D’Urso leads the way with four goals and five assists. Marco Breccianni and Manuel Marras each had four goals, while Aldo Florenzi contributed three.
Cosenza will need to match or exceed his league averages of 10.4 total shots, 1.2 big chances, 6.2 successful dribbles and 4.7 corner kicks. They will need to improve ball possession (46%) and doubles won (48.1%) while reducing their lost possessions (138.7), offsides (1.8), fouls (13.8), and yellow cards (2.6) .
Final Brescia-Cosenza Predictions and Selections
Brescia and Cosenza are evenly matched in Serie B, but only one of them will remain in this league. Brescia’s home record is much higher than Cosenza’s road record. The one goal deficit would surely be overturned and the Lions would win over the Wolves.
