      Serie A’s top two teams meet on Saturday at 12.30 CET. Here’s everything you need to know before the big match

      After six matches, there is almost nothing separating Brescia and Juventus Women ahead of their top-of-the-table encounter this Sunday.

      The two teams are tied on number of points (18) and goal difference (+14), with the Lombardy based outfit sitting above the Bianconere by virtue of having scored more goals (19 compared to Juve’s 16). Rita Guarino’s side, however, boast the better defensive record, conceding just twice, while Brescia have let in five.

      JUVE CONTINUE TO GRIND OUT RESULTS 

      Juventus Women’s start to the season was characterised by high-scoring victories both in the Coppa Italia – not least their 21-0 aggregate success over Torino – and in the league thanks to convincing wins over Atalanta Mozzanica (3-0), Res Roma (4-0) and Empoli (4-1).

      In recent weeks, Rita Guarino’s girls have had to grind out results, rather than run away with them: victories over Verona and Pink Bari were decided by the single strike, while last time out they had to dig deep to secure a deserved 2-0 scoreline against Sassuolo, with Martina Rosucci and Sanni Franssi netting in either half.

      The Bianconere have shown tremendous team spirit and kept performance levels high in maintaining their 100% start to the season after six Serie A games: the perfect preparation for Saturday’s big match against Brescia.

      FROM BRESCIA TO BIANCONERE

      Juventus Women have as many as seven ex-Brescia players on their books, with six signed directly from the club in the summer: Sara Gama, Cecilia Salvai, Martina Lenzini, Valentina Cernoia, Martina Rosucci and Barbara Bonansea will be returning to face their former club for the first time.

      Lisa Boattin, meanwhile, also played for Brescia up until one year ago before moving to Verona and subsequently Juventus Women.

      BRESCIA’S SEASON SO FAR

      Like Juventus Women, Brescia have won all six of their Serie A matches. Interestingly, they have recorded their greatest victories on the road this campaign, seeing off Bari (6-0), Fiorentina (4-2) and Fimauto Valpolicella (3-1).

      Their home wins have been more slender: Sassuolo (2-1), Tavagnacco (2-0) and Zaccaria (2-1), but nonetheless Gianpiero Piovani’s side remain top of the table on goals scored, primarily thanks to their imperious away form.

      Cristiana Girelli (seven goals this season) and Valentina Bergamaschi (five) are Brescia’s most in-form scorers this season. Both of them found the net last time out against Fimauto Valpolicella.
