Key Players- For Brescia it would be their leading goalscorer Possanzini but reports are he is starting from the bench but I wouldnt be suprised to see him start. Also keep an eye out for that talented little Slovacchian Marek Hamsyk who has scored 6 goals total so far this season in his midfield role. This little guy is a star in the making and I expect him to trouble Zanetti and Giannichedda.
For Juventus, stick with the hot hand Del Piero, our captain he been on fire and I dont expect the very young Brescia defense to stop him at this point. Also as the team is nursed back to almost 100% health wise and Camoranesi back in the starting role, expect more from his side so Trezeguet should also be an impact.
Look out Serse Cosmi is back and after last weeks riveting last minute win over Albinoleffe by a late Possanzini goal I look for Brescia to be pumped up for this big matchup. Although it is going to be played in Mantova look for the Rondinelle fans to make the trip and be out in full force.
Dont you readers worry, I just wanted to put this post out before I headed out for a long night but I will update it with more lovely points and opinions as soon as I return in the morning before the game (hopefully). Also I'll have my prediction after I contemplate it this evening. Enjoy your evenings all, with love your Juventus Offside.
