Benevento vs Inter Milan
2017/18 Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 1 October 2017
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Ciro Vigorito (Benevento).
Inter have another good chance to pick up another easy three points as they travel to face struggling Benevento in their last league fixture before the international hiatus.
The Nerazzurri have made a great start to the season under new coach Luciano Spalletti. Although they suffered a minor hiccup as their perfect 100 percent winning record came to an end by drawing 1-1 with Bologna, they’re still unbeaten and thus sit just two points behind both Napoli and Juventus, who are joint-tied in first place.
Impressively, they have defeated Roma and Fiorentina during this time frame and appear to have addressed some of their defensive concerns, as they have conceded just two goals thus far, which makes Inter’s defense the strongest after six rounds. Of course, it’s still early on in the season, but it still looks promising as they aim to secure a spot in Europe for next term.
As for Benevento, well, their debut appearance in the top flight has been nothing short of a disaster. They’re still searching for their first ever point and are rooted to the bottom of the table and are coming into this game having lost 2-0 to Crotone. That will be especially frustrating, as that was a game they surely were hoping to get something out of as the Squali are more of a team that are closer to their level.
Inter are not, and it goes without saying that having lost 6-0 to Napoli and 4-0 to Roma already this season, the hosts will be in for another long afternoon.

Benevento vs Inter Milan: Prediction
Inter were shocked last season by another relegation threatened candidate, Crotone, but that’s highly unlikely to happen this time around. The Nerazzurri should pick up a relatively straightforward win here to wrap up proceedings before the international hiatus as they aim to look forward to the Derby Della Madonnina after the break.
