Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Frosinone will be aiming to extend their winning run to four games when they take on Benevento in the Serie B round 22. The Canarini have been impressive in front of goal of late, and they are likely to adopt yet another attack-minded approach. January signing Jaime Baez is pushing for his first start after scoring as a substitute in a 3-1 win over Brescia, whereas there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Gli Stregoni, on the other hand, do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team failing to win the previous four league fixtures. Benevento are low on spirits following a 2-1 loss to Genoa, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Frosinone’s party at Stadio Benito Stirpe. As for the away team, both Veseli and Letizia are sidelined with injuries.

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.
