Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Benevento play host to Modena at their Stadio Ciro Vigorito in the Serie B round 37. Benevento are stuck at the bottom of the table with only 32 points on their account and, as a result, this has to go down as a must-win game for the home side. Pasquale Schiattarella serves a one-game ban, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Canarini, on the other hand, aim to move closer to the playoffs berth. Considering that the visitors will go for a win as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Diego Falcinelli and Thomas Battistella are major doubts, while Andrea Poli remains on the sidelines with an ACL injury. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
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.
