Our football match prediction:
Perugia will be looking to overcome a one-goal deficit in the tie against Benevento when the two teams face each other at Stadio Renato Curi. Perugia suffered a 1-0 loss in the first leg and it has to be noted that Benevento put an end to the team’s seven-game unbeaten run. However, seeing that the fans are likely to pack the stadium on Tuesday evening we believe that the Grifoni are capable of defeating Marco Baroni’s team on home soil in the Serie B play-offs semis, return leg. You should bear in mind that Perugia suffered their last defeat at home back in October, 2016. Benevento are on a four-game winning run ahead of the trip to Perugia, but considering that they suffered a 3-1 loss to the Grifoni in their last meeting at Stadio Renato Curi, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Tuesday’s football game.
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.
