Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Thanks to a 2-1 win over Cittadella at Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato Benevento moved one step closer to booking their place in the Serie B promotion play-offs final. The Gli Stregoni proved their worth in the first leg and they are now on a quest to defend their slim lead. Benevento did well to put an end to Cittadella’s five-game unbeaten run in the Italian second tier and they are definitely capable of repeating the success on Saturday evening.
The Gli Stregoni have been scoring goals for fun of late, which is yet another reason why we predict that they are going to emerge triumphant in the return leg. The Citta, on the other hand, head into Saturday’s football game with the lack of confidence and seeing that they need to go all guns blazing at Benevento, we are positive that the hosts will find the net on the break.
Highlighted Team (Benevento):
FC Benevento secured promotion to the Serie A for the first time in their history at the end of the 2016/2017 campaign, but it has to be noted that they finished the regular season in 5th place in the standings. The Stregoni (Witches) did well to beat Perugia and Carpi in the promotion play-offs and, as a result, they are going to taste a top-flight football.
Benevento were founded in 1929 as Associazione Calcio Benevento and back then they played their home games at Meomartini, the venue which was built by Ciccio Minocchia. Nowadays, the Stregoni welcome their rivals at Stadio Giro Vigorito and the capacity of the stadium is 12.847. Benevento are well known for their yellow jerseys with red stripes, whilst they wear white shirts and white shorts when playing on the travels.
After Napoli, Salernitana and Avellino Benevento become the fourth club from Campania to compete in the Serie A. Matches between the aforementioned teams are well known as Campania derbies.
