Competition: Serie B

Market: Brescia win

Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport

Two sides who have their sights set on picking up a first-leg advantage on Wednesday evening, Brescia will welcome Monza to the Stadio Mario Rigamonti for their play-off showdown.

Starting with the hosts, just about managing to extend on their play-off adventure with a stunning comeback on the road, Brescia will be desperate to build off of that momentum here. Eventually claiming a 3-2 win in extra-time at home against Perugia, Head Coach Eugenio Corini should be smelling the chance to pick up a first-leg advantage on Wednesday evening. Signing off their Serie B campaign with a thumping 3-0 win against Reggina, Le Rondinelle should also be boosted by their continued success in front of their own supporters. Along with losing just one of their last 11 straight domestic contests, a run that stems back to March 3rd, Brescia are also unbeaten in each of their previous 12 matchups at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti. Appearing to have found their feet in the final third, Thursday’s hosts should find the mood in their camp at a high.

As for the visitors, after just missing out on an automatic promotion spot by a couple of points, Monza do find themselves in the midst of somewhat of a struggle. Likely to still be feeling the effects after a costly 1-0 loss away at Perugia on May 6th, Head Coach Giovanni Stroppa knows that his side will face a tough task here. Managing to win just one of their last four Serie B contests, a run highlighted by a shock 4-1 drumming against Frosinone last month, the Biancorossi have also shown some extended issues on the road. Including those back-to-back away day defeats against Perugia and Frosinone, Monza have lost three of their last four second-tier matchups away from the Stadio Brianteo. Struggling to find much stability over the past month, we’re backing a home victory on Wednesday evening.

Bet: Brescia 6/5 to beat Monza in Wednesday’s Serie B play-off showdown @ 888sport
