Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Benevento will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Cosenza and Sudtirol when they take on SPAL in the relegation six-pointer. Benevento failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, but they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Both Acampora and Viviani are banned for the match, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Gli Spalini are level on points with Benevento in the Serie B standings, but given their five-game losing run on the road, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. As for the visiting side, there are no fresh injury worries ahead of Monday’s encounter. In the first half of the season Benevento defeated Spal 2-1 at Stadio Paolo Mazza.
