Benevento vs Livorno
Italy – Serie B
Date: Monday, 22 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Stadio Ciro Vigorito (Benevento).
The 8th round of Italian Serie B is going to be wrapped up with a clash between Benevento and Livorno on Monday evening.
After being the bottom placed team in the Italian top flight last season, the hosts want to bounce back to the top flight.
They had a very good start in the first five rounds, they managed to tie three straight victories, but they lost in the last two occasions.
Massimo Coda and the lads have been clinical in front of the opposition’s goal, however their defence is not doing a good job.
Although Benevento are positioned in the middle of the table, they are just three points behind the second place.
Livorno have been recently promoted to the Italian second tier, but they are still searching for their first victory.
The visitors are hammered to the bottom of the table as they managed to snatch just to points from six matches.
Cristiano Lucarelli’s side has too many problems in finding the back of the oppositions’ net as they’ve produced just four goals so far.
However, they’ve lost just once at away grounds, there they’ve won all their points. Livorno need to improve urgently if they want to avoid the trouble.
Benevento vs Livorno: Head-to-head
These two sides have met twice so far in their history, and both sides managed to celebrate wins when playing in front of the home crowd.
Their only official match took place back in 2012 when Livorno eliminated their rivals from Coppa Italia, while Benevento celebrated a narrow 1-0 win in their friendly match in the summer of 2017.
Benevento vs Livorno: Prediction
These two sides haven’t been playing very well lately and they are searching for all three points. The hosts showed more this season and they should be closer to the victory in this one which might bring them closer to the promotion zone.
Home side has been involved in high scoring matches so far and their matches at Stadio Ciro Vigorito have been a joy to watch in terms of total goals scored. Although Livorno are putting poor displays in the front, this one might go above 2.5 margin.
