On paper, the answer is obviously a resounding no. Yes, Benevento are playing at home. They have earned all seven points here. But that was against Chievo, a team who have been in free-fall, and then a shock win against Sampdoria, a team who have been less than consistent. Their first point was against AC Milan, who, despite their summer spending have never looked like serious Scuedetto contenders, let alone even making a real push for the top four.

Napoli, on the other hand, are a whole other proposition entirely. The Partenopei aren’t infallible – they’ve already been beaten this season. But that was by Juventus (in Serie A) and then Atalanta (in the Coppa Italia). There were also losses to Manchester City and Feyenoord in the Champions League, which is hardly a surprise, as it was pretty clear from the outset that Maurizio Sarri wasn’t going to focus much on the European side of competition this term anyway.

Simply put, Benevento will park the bus and hope to avoid another 6-0 hammering like their first meeting. Napoli have won six in a row prior to this meeting and they will certainly be expected to make it a seventh straight meeting. With Juventus taking on Sassuolo earlier in the day, the Partenopei will come into this game in second – but it obviously won’t be for long.

Napoli won’t get an easier game than this one, and it will certainly be a very interesting title race between them and Juventus to the end. Fans will surely be looking forward to the showdown between Juve and Napoli at the Allianz Stadium in what could ultimately be the title decider. But until then, it will be quite fascinating to see who ends up dropping points first. However, it certainly won’t be Napoli in this fixture.

Benevento vs Napoli: Prediction

It’s obviously going to be a one-sided game with Benevento offering little going forward. That means that Napoli’s chances of keeping a clean sheet are even better, as they have kept four clean sheets in their last five road fixtures. Overall, the Partenopei have 13 wins from their 14 road games and they’re an obvious bet to make it 14 from 15 with another clean sheet in the bag.
