The hosts are struggling in the relegation battle this season as they are sitting on the bottom of table being seven points behind the nearest safe spot.
Padova have lost four times in a row and they managed to book just two victories so far in the season.
Although Claudio Foscarini’s side lost just twice at home ground, they’ve been involved in a lot of draw matches.
Home side needs to find the winning formula as soon as possible if they want to stand the chance of remaining in the second tier.

The visitors are just four points behind the second-placed Lecce, but they need to stabilize their form as they celebrated twice in the last five matches.

Padova vs Benevento: Prediction
The hosts are in a very bad momentum and they are in a deep results crisis. They are going to have a very hard task to remain undefeated in this one and we believe Benevento are going to meet the expectations and snatch all three points from this one.
Padova’s home matches have been very tight ones, while Benevento have been involved in a lot of low-scoring matches at away pitches. Therefore, we are not expecting to see a lot of goals and this one should remain under 2.5 margin.
