​In their fifth game of the Serie A season, Juventus face a trip to Stadio Mario Rigamonti on Tuesday to play newly-promoted Brescia. 


Despite being unbeaten, Juventus have had an underwhelming start to life under Maurizio Sarri. La Vecchia Signora could only achieve narrow wins against Parma, Napoli and Hellas Verona while earning disappointing draws against Fiorentina and Atlético Madrid in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, newly-promoted Brescia have had a positive start to their first Serie A campaign since 2010/11. They won their opening game away at Cagliari, and fell to defeats to Milan and Bologna, before earning a victory against Udinese on Saturday.

Head to Head Record

FBL-ITA-BRESCIA-JUVENTUS

​The two sides haven't faced each other for nearly a decade, with their last meeting being back in March 2011. Goals from Milos Krasic and Alessandro Del Piero were enough to see off Le Rondinelle on that day, back when Juve were still playing at Stadio Olimpico di Torino. 


Out of their last five meetings, Juventus have won on three occasions while Brescia have only come away victorious once, all the way back in March 2007 when both sides were in Serie B. 


Recent Form

FBL-ITA-SERIEA-JUVENTUS-VERONA

As previously mentioned, Juventus have enjoyed a decent, if underwhelming start to the season. La Vecchia Signora are currently unbeaten and sit second in the table, two points behind Internazionale. 


It's been a good start to life back in ​Serie A for Brescia, winning two and losing two. Le Rondinelle coach Eugenio Corini will be pleased with those wins, especially since both were away from home.

Prediction

Romulo

Brescia, as we saw in their narrow defeat to ​Milan, aren't pushovers. Juventus will be going to Stadio Mario Rigamonti almost expecting a win, but Le Rondinelle will give them a hard time throughout. It could be tough for Juventus, but they should do enough to earn a victory.


Prediction: Brescia 1-2 Juventus
