Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Stadio Ciro Vigorito will host Sunday’s football game between Benevento and Alessandria, the two teams who meet for the first time since May 2010. Back then Benevento defeated Alessandria in the Lega Pro C1/A, and the Gli Stregoni are once again seen as favourites to beat L’Orso. This game comes too early for Gianluca Lapadula, who represented Peru at the Copa America, while Iago Falque returned to Torino after his loan spell had ended.
Alessandria, on the other hand, are eager to impress on their debut in the Serie B. The newcomers are determined to stay in the Italian second tier as longer as possible, and seeing that the hosts will be without key player in the season opener, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Marconi misses the match through suspension, while Pierozzi is out of contention through injury.
