Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Benevento will look to build on back-to-back wins over Pisa (5-1) and Reggina (3-0) when they take on Vicenza in the Serie B round 34. The Gli Stregoni are five points behind automatic promotion places, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts. Gabriele Moncini is pushing for a rare start after finding the net in the midweek triumph, while both Gianluca Lapadula and Kamil Glik should miss out with injuries.
The Biancorossi, on the other hand, aim to move away from bottom three, but given their three-game losing run on the road, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on Benevento. All Tommaso Mancini, Nikita Contini, Daniel Cappelletti, and Jordan Lukaku are out of contention through injuries, speaking of the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Gianluca Lapadula):
Gianluca Lapadula, also known as Lapagol, due to his goalscoring abilities, was born in Turin and started his career at Juventus youth team, but was released because he wasn’t doing well in his studies. After the departure with Juventus, Lapadula perfected his goalscoring skills in lower Italian leagues and even spent one year in NK Gorica, Slovenia.
During his spell in Ravenna, he managed to finish the season 2012/13 as the top scorer in the group, netting 24 goals in the process. For a long period of time, the 28-year-old was Parma’s player, but he went on loans often, and, after Parma went bankrupt, Lapagol moved to Pescara. With 30 goals in 43 appearances, the striker caught the eye of Serie A giant Milan. He netted his first goal for the Rossoneri only three minutes after he came on as a substitute.
The following season Lapagol became the striker of Genoa. Even though he was called to play for Peru, the Genoa hitman decided to represent Italy, getting his first call to the senior squad in November 2016. However, he never made an official appearance for Italy, since he only played an unofficial friendly against San Marino, when he scored a hat-trick.
