Our football match prediction:
Stadio San Paolo will host Sunday’s football game between Napoli and Benevento. It has been 27 years since Napoli won their last Scudetto and, no doubt, fans are hungry for trophies. Maurizio Sarri is doing a great job with the Neapolitans and his men recorded a win in each of their first three league fixtures in the 2017/2018 Serie A campaign. Napoli need to keep on raising their form if they are to put an end to Juve’s dominance in the Italian elite division and they are widely expected to pick up all three points from Sunday’s football game against Benevento. Dries Mertens scored his second goal of the season in the 3-0 win over Bologna and he is likely to lead the line for the hosts against the newcomers. Benevento are eager to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Serie A, but they are unlikely to spoil Napoli’s party at Stadio San Paolo.
