With Brescia you can no longer fail

TURIN – After last night’s advance (Ascoli-Cremonese 0-0), the 25th matchday of Serie B continues today with 8 games, again in the classic format, 5 games at 2 p.m., 3 at 4:15 p.m. The highlight is played in Barbera, where Palermo and Como are guests (4.15 p.m.). If Corini’s Sicilians win, they will catch up with Roberts’ Larians in the standings and effectively return to the fight for direct promotion. But it is also the meeting of the teams that have moved the most in the January transfer market and made the most interesting changes: Ranocchia in Palermo and even more Strefezza in Como give both teams a new face and both have already scored a few goals (also good ones). Pirlo’s Sampdoria hosts again at 4:15 p.m
Marans Brescia: The Blucerchiati have gone through a lot of changes, but after last Saturday’s flop in Pisa they can no longer afford any empty passes, the risk of being sucked into the hot zone of the table is high. Brescia, on the other hand, has just returned from the defeat in the Lombard derby in Como (1-0), but the Swallows played a good game and proved that they had the ball and deserved a draw (they hit two posts). ). Catanzaro, in the playoff zone (6th with 6 points ahead of ninth-placed Brescia), will have to confirm its recent progress by hosting Sudtirol (4.15 p.m.) to keep them. Despite last Saturday’s defeat against Venezia, the South Tyroleans have collected 7 points in the 5 games of 2024 and are thus keeping the playout zone at a safe distance (+5). The 2 p.m. games. For Parma di Pecchia, first in class, there is the Pisa obstacle at the Tardini, who knows whether Aquilani’s team has turned the corner after beating Samp a week ago and whether they will now find a minimum of continuity . could cultivate some playoff ambitions (he’s at -3), but it’s also true that Parma haven’t lost at the Tardini Stadium in 18 games. Watch out for the Cittadella: Gorini’s team has suffered four defeats in a row and at this rate is in danger of not reaching the playoffs. Today the Venetians play in the home game of D’Angelo’s Spezia, who are looking for safety points and have a positive record of three games in which 5 points have been scored. Curious also for Bari, which hosts Feralpisalò: In the last round, Puglia put Lecco under pressure 3-1 in Iachini’s debut game on the bench, and if the encore came today, the hunt for a place in the playoffs would be over the season’s goal , which the owners of Da Laurentiis have set themselves. But beware of Feralpi: last Saturday they lost 1-2 against Palermo (but they deserved more) and previously collected 14 points in 7 games, so a lively team. At Lecco, which hosts Cosenza, Aglietti makes his debut on the bench, the Blucelesti’s third coach this season after Foschi and Bonazzoli, who was sacked after the Lombards’ fifth defeat in five games in 2024. And Cosenza is on the ball (8 points). in the last 4 races), if they win today, they would effectively enter the race for the playoffs. Also pay attention to Reggiana-Ternana: last Saturday the Granata were on the verge of victory in Cremona and with Nesta they are aiming for the final leap in quality to target more than just a quiet rescue. The Umbrians from Breda, on the other hand, have only collected one point in their last three games and have not won since January 20th (3-1 in Cittadella). The round ends tomorrow with the postponement of Venice-Modena, kick-off is at 4.15 p.m.
