Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Benevento will be looking to cement top position in the Serie B table when they face Cremonese at Stadio Giovanni Zini. Benevento aim to put icing on the cake on a very successful season, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s showdown. The Gli Stregoni are eyeing their seventh consecutive league win, and seeing that the attacking partnership of Sau and Coda has been in a perfect working order this term, away win should be considered.
The hosts, on the other hand, aim to escape the danger zone in the Serie B table, but they are unlikely to make life difficult for the league leaders at an empty Stadio Giovanni Zini. In the first half of the season Benevento recorded a routine 2-0 win over Cremonese, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing side.
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.
