Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Stadio Ciro Vigorito will host Saturday’s football game between Benevento and Como, the two bottom-table sides. Benevento aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Como. Stefano Pettinari misses out through injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Moreno Longo’s men, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Modena, but seeing that they were crushed by Benevento (0-5) in the previous meeting between the two sides at “Ciro Vigorito”, home triumph should be considered. All Solini, Kerrigan, and Baselli are out of contention through injuries, while there are no suspended players in the away team. Alberto Cerri, who scored the winner against Modena, is widely expected to return to the starting XI, with Da Riva and Vignali pushing for a start as well.
Highlighted Player (Camillo Ciano):
Despite beginning his youth career at Napoli, attacking midfielder Camillo Ciano did not make his debut with the Partenopei in the Serie B. After spending several years of his career on loan at Lecco, Cavese, Crotone, Padova and Avellino, Ciano signed for Parma in 2014. However, he was immediately sent on loan to Crotone where he scored 17 goals in 36 appearances for the club.
In 2015 the Italian footballer joined Cesena where he found his best form. In 2017 he moved to fellow Serie B side Frosinone and it has to be noted that he impressed in the 2017/2018 Serie B season, scoring 14 goals and providing 17 assists for his teammates.
Camillo Ciano’s main position is right winger, but he is used as both second striker and left winger as well. He was born on February 22, 1990 in Marcianise (Italy). Ciano’s preferred foot is left.
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.
