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.

August 2018



A perfect start to the Serie B season for the Rondielle with Alfredo Donnarumma scoring a brace in the 2-1 victory over rivals Hellas Verona on the opening day of the competition.

This was followed up by a very special effort from Dimitri Bisoli against Perugia. The midfielder scoring a brace with both goals being struck from 25 yards out early in the first half.


Player Of The Month

Dimitri Bisoli

After being handed a new contact by manager Eugenio Corini during the pre-season, Bisoli has gotten off to a flying start to the season.

Starting with a strong performance against Hella Verona, the 24-year-old then scored a brace to seal victory against Perugia with both goals being struck from outside of the box.


Serie B

Brescia find themselves sharing the lead of the competition after two matches with Cremonese and Crotone.

At the bottom of the table, despite a strong start Foggia find themselves four points behind after being deducted eight points due to financial mismanagement.


Injury Report

Alfredo Donnarumma

In a massive blow to the side, Donnarumma tore his thigh muscle during the opening fixture of the season. The star player is expected to be out for up to three months.

Emanuele Ndoj

The Albanian midfielder suffered a twisted ankle during an incident in training, an injury that will be re-assessed at the end of the month.

Franco Ferrari

Ferrari remains on the sidelines due to his sports hernia, he is still expected to be unavailable for a further two to three weeks



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.


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.

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 :)
