Benevento vs Fiorentina
2017/18 Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 22 October 2017
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Ciro Vigorito (Benevento).
After earning a tough win against Udinese, Fiorentina will look to continue building as they take on bottom placed Benevento on Sunday.
It goes without saying that the debutants have had a miserable term in their first Serie A campaign, and it looks set to be a rough time for them. The Viola, meanwhile, should have no problems picking up a win against a team who have yet to earn even a single point from their first eight games.
Benevento had a great chance to earn their first win last Monday when they took on fellow strugglers Hellas Verona, but blew it, and now are still rooted at the bottom of the table. They’re five points behind fellow relegation candidates Crotone and SPAL and will really be up against it as Fiorentina will be desperate for points themselves.
Meanwhile, the Viola are just outside the top ten, but a win here will turn things around. Milan are in freefall at the moment and Fiorentina crushed Hellas Verona 5-0, so, barring something surprising from Benevento, it’s hard to see something but a win for the visitors here.

Benevento vs Fiorentina: Prediction
Anything but a win for Fiorentina at this stage would not be acceptable, to say the least.
Benevento will be still smarting from their loss to Verona, but will not want to pour forward either as the last thing they will want is to be utterly humiliated in front of their home support.
