Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Bologna and Benevento take on each other at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara in the opening game of day 22. The Rossoblu head into the match following a thrilling 3-0 win over Parma, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play. Keep in mind, though, that Svanberg is banned for the match, with both Farago and Santander remaining in the recovery room. Medel, on the other hand, will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Benevento suffered a dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous five league fixtures. The newcomers have been struggling at the back of late, and given Bologna’s display in the 3-0 win over Parma, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts. In their last meeting at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara Bologna recorded a routine 3-0 win over Benevento. Both Ionita and Improta are suspended for the visitors, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Stefano Denswil):
Stefano Denswil is a product of Ajax football academy. The Dutch centre-back, who was born in Zaandam on May 7, 1993, scored one goal in 22 appearances in the Eredivisie for Ajax before joining Club Brugge in 2015. Denswil quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Club Brugge and it has to be noted that he scored his first goal for the Blauw-Zwart in December 2015 in a 4-1 loss to Anderlecht.
Speaking of his international career, Stefano Denswil has seven caps with Netherlands U21 team, but, outside of football, the Club Brugge practices kickboxing. Stefano Denswil’s preferred foot is left, but he is not used as a left-back. His main position is centre-back and his contract with Club Brugge should expire in June, 2020.
Denswil has three Eredivisie titles with Ajax and he won his second Belgian Pro League trophy with Club Brugge in the 2017/2018 season. Denswil wears No. 24 jersey at the Jan Breydel Stadium outfit.
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.
