Bari had solid season so far, they had some bad series of results in December and January but are in decent shape now and stands at 5th position at the table in Serie B which leads into play offs for promotion, in 32nd round Bari awaiting Brescia and will be seeking for a victory, in October they faced with Brescia and were defeated with one goal margin, here will try to find revenge for that.
In last three rounds home team earned three points after three draws, most recently divided points with Cittadella after goalless draw and that was fair outcome in the end, before that got two draws at home against Spezia and Pro Vercelli but in both games were pretty good but failed to win. Bari defeated Brescia in last encounter at this stadium and scored two goals without conceding, here judging by their form should repeat that outcome.
Bari scored 42 goals in 30 matches and showed decent goal scoring skills, in every of last 8 matches against guests they managed to score and tonight should do the same, they are marked as favorites here and for sure can win this encounter. Defenders Gyomber (19/0) and Balkovec (2/0) are both with their national teams, defenders Diakhite (8/0), Morleo (4/0), Oikonomou (2/0), midfielder Salzano (4/0), forwards Floro Flores (19/1) and Brienza (24/3) are injrued while forward and top scorer Galano (24/13) is still in doubt due to an injury.
Brescia survived lat campaign in Serie B after ending at 15th position, now they are only one point above relegation zone it will be difficult to outplay Bari here. In last round they got a draw at home against Cremonese while before that were defeated by Novara and Perugia, at this moment it's hard to believe that they will beat Bari and secure position in safe zone.
Brescia scored 30 goals in 30 games in this campaign while conceded 36, they weren't great on travelings and in last nine games away from home they celebrated only once, now are facing with unpleasant hosts and to avoid another defeat must show some really great performances. All in all this team needs some changes, they need some points from this match to avoid dropping under the line but it will be really hard to earn them.
In last 15 years they achieved only one victory over Bari at this field and how the things stands at this moment i just doubt that guests can beat Bari which are in decent shape and seems to be one of candidates for promotion. Midfielder Dall'Oglio (9/0) and forward Okwonkwo (5/0)are injured and will remain sidelined, defender Coppolaro (17/0) is suspended while defender Yonali (8/0), midfielder Ndoj (13/0) and forward Spalek (6/1) won't be in the squad due to international duties.
Bari should win this game, they are playing well and now are facing with Brescia which can't be satisfied with their recent results and are very close to a relegation zone, i'll place my bet on victory of Bari here.
