Fiorentina is in Serie A in the 5th spot with 30 points from 17 matches. They have 3 consecutive wins in the league with the latest one ended in 4-0 dominance over Salernitana held in the previous weekend. This victory is seen before the wins over Bologna and Sampdoria in the Serie A.

The away team come into this fixture with a win over Spal by 2-1. That match led to an extra time after an own goal from Gabriele Moncini ending in a tie.However, the same Italian forward converted a crucial penalty in the 120th minute taking The Sorcerers to the Round of 16.

Fiorentina is in excellent home form while Benevento are performing remarkable at away fixtures. Previous matches between the two had averaged 2.5 goals while BTTS happened 25% of the time. We also feel a narrow home victory happening at Wednesday as their home run is excellent this season while the scoring from both sides is also unavoidable.
