A good pre-season campaign there, especially that final result - even if it was to lower league opponents. A tough start, as I believe Hellas were relegated last season and so will be keen to restore their top flight status.

16-0? poor result. Should have scored more.

At what point did Lumezzane sort of... Give up?

Just the 16 goals then against Lumezzane, nothing to see here folks, move along!

A very busy month lies ahead for Brescia, who will be looking to capitalise on their great start to the season.

The home fixture against Palermo will be a great measuring stick for Brescia with the Rosanero considered to be Serie B title favourites.

Comments

ScottT: Hellas Verona are certainly on my radar, I expect them to be one of the promotion candidates this season

Justice: The whole squad needs to have a good hard look at themselves

Jack: They missed a chance early in the first half and then we scored three goals inside five minutes so I would say then haha

mgriffin2012: It certainly wasn't the worst performance
A very good start to the season. Starting strongly is always a positive! A massive shame that Donnarumma will be out for three months though. It'll be interesting to see how you fair without him.

Two wins from two, no complaints there.

A very strong start to the season mate, things are looking good moving forward!

Excellent start mate! I know it's only two games but as a new manager beginning with a start like that can go a long way to improving the dressing room and really believe in you :)

Results



It was a month of two halves for Brescia after continuing their early season form with two strong wins against Cosenza and Leece, striker Luca Miracoli with a strong performance against Consenza in particular, finishing with a brace.

A convincing defeat to Salernitana ended the winning streak of the Rondielle before they suffered two more defeats to Palermo and Cremonese despite leading in both matches.

-----

Player Of The Month




Ales Mateju

Despite only playing two and a half matches due to injury, Ales Mateju has been named the player of the month for September.

The right back on loan from English Premier League side Brighton played a key role in the victories against Cosenza and Leece with his pace and crossing ability.

-----

Serie B



Despite the three losses during the month, Brescia find themselves just three points away from league leaders Palermo and Salernitana who both defeated the Rondinelle.

-----

Still recovering from his torn thigh muscle, the 27-year-old striker is expected to be out for another three to eight weeks

Ales Mateju

The form player for Brescia during September, Mateju pulled ligaments in his ankle during the fixture against Salernitana and will be out for the first week of the October

Franco Ferrari

After only just returning from injury, Ferrari suffered a twisted ankle in training and will be miss between two to four weeks of action

-----

Fixtures



It is expected to be an easier month in October, starting with three consecutive fixtures against sides firmly in the bottom half of Serie B.

To finish the month, Brescia face Benevento who appear to be a contender for promotion this season. The side managed by Cristian Bucchi is yet to lose a game so far this season.

Comments

ScottT: Donnarumma was the reason I chose the club in the first place, so it certainly hit me hard when he got injured

Justice: *dusts hands*

mgriffin2012: Strong start, always good to get a win over one of your rivals as well

Jack: I have found this to be the case as well, early fixtures are very important
Certainly not the results you were hoping for but to come up against two good sides in Salernitana and Palermo consecutively is simply bad luck. A couple of wins in the next month will get you right back on track :)

A month of two halves, indeed. You're not having much luck with injuries at the minute either!
1
Not the best way to end the month but you're within three points of top spot. That's one game and it could all change! Keep fighting you sexy beast xo

October 2018

-----

Results



It was a good month of results for Brescia as they managed nine points from a possible twelve in October.

Starting with a 3-2 victory over last placed Foggia, the Rondinelle then came away with two 1-0 victories against Cittadella and Spezia.

In the last match of the month, Brescia lost 2-1 to Benevento after winger Cristian Buonaiuto scored two stunning goals in an incredible display for the Stregoni.

-----

Player Of The Month




Alessandro Martinelli

It was a standout month for Martinelli the 25-year-old who put in exceptional performances throughout the month.

The Swiss midfielder has now scored four goals so far this season to be the leading scorer for Brescia so far this season.

-----

Serie B



Brescia began to climb back up the table, moving into third despite four losses so far this season. Leaders Benevento find themselves in a strong position, ahead by a point with a game in hand.

At the bottom of the table, Foggia have managed to get themselves back into the positives after being handed an eight-point deduction for financial mismanagement. They will still face a tough battle to stay away from relegation at the end of the season.

-----

Injury Report


Alfredo Donnarumma

After being unavailable for over two months, Donnarumma is expected to return in the second week of November. The Brescia line-up will be much stronger once he returns from injury.

Felipe Curcio

One of the form players so far this season, Curcio pulled a calf muscle during the 1-0 victory over Cittadella. He is expected to return from injury as soon as the fixture against Venezia.

-----

Fixtures



Only three fixtures await Brescia in November, home fixture against the sixth place Venezia and fourth placed Crotone will be tough for the Rondinelle. The away fixture will have fans expecting a victory against a Padova side one point away from the relegation zone.

Comments

Jack: All those 2-1 losses are very frustrating

ScottT: Missing two of my best players in Donnarumma and Mateju isn't ideal, especially due to the lack of depth in the squad

Justice: HA! will do
Is it a Brescia exclusive rule that whenever you lose it must be by a 2-1 scoreline? :)) Decent month and some good advancements in the league table
