Benevento vs Genoa
Italian Serie A.
Date: Saturday, 12 May 2018
Kick-Off: 17:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Ciro Vigorito (Benevento).

Genoa suffered another defeat as they stumbled to a 3-2 loss to Fiorentina. That came after a loss to Atalanta, meaning that the Grifone have lost two in a row, but with top flight status secured, they’re not too worried. Still, they’ll want to finish the season on a high note, and they have a good chance to achieve just that at the expense of already relegated Benevento this Saturday.

Le Streghe lost last weekend, but they will hope to finish their debut campaign on a decent note before heading back down to Serie B. They did manage to beat AC Milan recently 1-0 to earn their first away win, but it was all in vain as they ended up being relegated.

Genoa themselves could have joined them at one point this season when they were struggling, as they were in bad form. They have since turned things around under Davide Ballardini and have pulled themselves into mid-table safety under his tenure since 2018 came around.

However, Benevento may be coming into this game having suffered a loss, but they have improved things as of late. It’s just come at the wrong time for Le Streghe, but they will want to take advantage of the fact that Genoa have failed to win their last five away games and are coming into this match having lost two in a row.

It’s their last home game as well, and they will also want to put on a good showing for their loyal fans, who have stuck by them through what has been a difficult debut campaign. They’re certainly not going to go down easily, and will put up a brave fight.

Benevento vs Genoa: Head-to-head statistics

  • There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Benevento’s last 6 home games
  • Genoa have failed to win their last 5 away matches
  • There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Genoa’s last 4 games

Benevento vs Genoa: Prediction

Genoa are unbeaten when it comes to facing badly performing sides. They’ve not lost both home and away against the bottom five sides and have actually won eight of their last nine meetings so far. They have won four of their last four meetings on the road against bottom placed sides. That being said, Benevento won’t make things easy either. They notably picked up their first point at this ground at AC Milan’s expense and in their final home game of their first ever Serie A campaign they have nothing to lose. They will do everything they can to get a point.
