Monza will entertain Brescia at the Stadio Brianteo in the semi-final second leg of the Serie B promotion playoffs on Sunday.

The hosts finished fourth in the standings while the visitors finished in fifth place, just one place behind Monza. The hosts haven't made it to the Italian top flight while Brescia are featuring in the playoffs for the second season in a row after being relegated in the 2019-20 edition of Serie A.

Monza vs Brescia Prediction

Le Rondinelle head into the game battered by injuries. Their first-choice full-backs had to be replaced in the first leg after they suffered injuries, which had an impact on their morale as they gave away a one-goal lead in the second half.

Monza will be looking to capitalize on Brescia's weakened squad and are the favorites to emerge triumphant at home in this fixture.

Prediction: Monza 2-1 Brescia
