Benevento vs Hellas Verona
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 4 April 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK
Venue: Stadio Ciro Vigorito (Benevento).
Hellas Verona will have a chance to rebound from tough back-to-back defeats to Atalanta and Milan as they travel to Stadio Ciro Vigorito to take on the rock-bottomed Benevento side in mid-week’s Serie A round. Gialloblu will be desperate to clinch a three-pointer here being four points away from the safe zone, but their form does not quite promise a success even though they are up against league’s weakest team here.
Benevento could not make it longer than a year in the elite class as they clearly proven to lack quality for the top flight football this term. Roberto de Zerbi’s side has only collected 10 points in 29 games so far and they firmly hold the very foot of the league ladder. The defensive line is much weaker part of the team as Benevento have shipped league high 69 goals so far.
The hosts will come into this off the back of four straight losses and a very entertaining weekend. They had sa man sent off early on away at Lazio on Saturday, but netted two to gain the shocking lead at Olimpico in spite of such handicap. Nonetheless, Biancoceleseti have bagged six at the end to confirm Benevento’s well-known defensive woes once again.
Verona have also revealed defensive vulnerabilities of their won recently allowing as many as eight in mentioned consecutive losses to Atalanta and Inter. However, Fabio Pecchia’s side has previously won two on the bounce at home, against the likes of Torino and Chievo to see a glimmer of hope in making the elite class football next season.
Benevento vs Verona: Head-to-head
Teams have a win, a draw, and a defeat each in three head to head games.
Benevento have won their only home match back in September 2016 when the sides battled it out in Serie B (2-0).
This term’s clash saw a narrow 1-0 victory for Verona at Bentegodi.
Benevento vs Verona: Prediction
Even though Verona mainly struggle on travels, this is indeed their ultimate opportunity to save the top flight status.
We have to try with the away win at the sky-high 4.75 odds given that the hosts have only managed to collect 10 points so far in the season.
The safer option would be BTTS at 1.66 odds since both sides have been super vulnerable at the back throughout the entire season, and particularly lately.
