Benevento vs Genoa Serie A Predictions by LeagueLane

Benevento vs Genoa
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 20 December 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Ciro Vigorito, Benevento.

Even though the results haven’t been ideal so far, Benevento are definitely a refreshment to Serie A football. This squad has been extremely entertaining to watch, and we believe that is going to be the case this Sunday at Ciro Vigorito Stadium against Genoa.

These two teams have something in common – both have caused upsets during the mid-week action. Hosts held Lazio to a 1-1 draw at this venue, while Genoa did something similar at Luigi Ferraris against AC Milan (2-2 FT). In terms of standings, visitors are three positions and five points behind Benevento. Home win is currently priced at 2.30 odds, but our primary recommendations are going to be tied to the goals market.

Benevento vs Genoa Head-to-head

These two opponents met only two times in the past, in season 2017/18 when Benevento were members of Serie A.

Both teams took advantage of the home pitch, winning fixtures with identical 1-0 result.

Benevento vs Genoa Prediction

It would be unfair to say that 1-1 draw against Lazio was luck or coincidence. Benevento have done the same thing a couple of weeks ago in a match versus reigning champions Juventus. The full time result was the same. The only victory achieved at this stadium so far was in early November against Bologna 1-0. When it comes to all games, best performance was seen at Artemio Franchi where Witches defeated Fiorentina 1-0 thanks to the goal of Riccardo Improta.

Nine out of last ten games for Genoa across all competitions ended either with Over 2.5 goals or both teams scoring. This team is all about offense and they are in a rough situation right now. Rolando Maran’s squad will have to aim for victory on Sunday afternoon, which should result in high number of goals.

Benevento vs Genoa Bet Tips

  • Both teams to score & Over 2.5 goals @ 2.20
  • Over 1.5 goals in the first half @ 2.75.
