      The low-down on Eugenio Corini's team

      Six points in four games: this is how Brescia have fared so far, upon their return to Serie A. 

      For the second consecutive year, they are being coached by Eugenio Corini, and they earned promotion to the top-flight after winning Serie B with 67 points. Alfredo Donnarumma, top scorer with 25 goals, was decisive with his goals, and he is a striker who confirmed himself as a real hit-man even in these first few match days, scoring three goals, including the one-two in the only home match played against Bologna. The offensive department gained more strength and experience through the purchase of Mario Balotelli, who will make his debut on Tuesday night against Juventus, after serving a four-match suspension. In Brescia's Serie A promotion, Ernesto Torregrossa was also decisive with 12 goals.

      In the summer, the Finnish Jesse Joronen joined the team to fill the spot between the posts, while in defence the structure has not changed much compared to the recent past, with Sabelli, Cistana and Matějů confirmed starters with alongside the new arrival Jhon Chancellor.

      Even in the middle of the field the names are practically the same as last season, with the control room entrusted to Sandro Tonali, a classy playmaker and youth product of the club. Alongside him is Bisoli and Dessena, while Romulo - who scored in his last 1-0 win in Udine - represents experience. The ex-Genoa player once also wore the Juventus shirt. Speaking of former Bianconeri, forward is Alessandro Matri, who on Tould face some of his old comrades with whom he won many trophies.
