Our football match prediction:
Benevento did well to hold Carpi to a goalless draw in the Serie B play-offs, first leg and they will be looking to get their job done in the tie against Marco Baroni’s men when the two teams face each other at Stadio Ciro Vigorito in Thursday’s football match. Both teams are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the second leg and yet another close encounter is on the horizon. Benevento failed to turn their dominance into goals in the first leg, but they have been impressive at home ground of late and that is the main reason why we predict the hosts will emerge triumphant in Thursday’s clash. A place in the Serie A is at stake and, no doubt, fans will pack Stadio Ciro Vigorito. You should bear in mind that the Stregoni recorded a routine 3-0 win over Carpi in their last meeting in Benevento.
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.
