Salernitana vs Benevento
Italy – Serie B
Date: Friday, 8th February 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Arechi (Salerno).
The Garnets were winless in both of their last two games. While their last road trip ended in a lackluster, goalless draw, the home-tie against Lecce kind of stung the fans a bit. Within 20 minutes of the game itself, the hosts were two goals behind, and it took them late into the second half to pull one back, at least to save face. The match ended 1-2, in favor of the guests.
Fans are really being offered their money’s worth with the intense competition at the top of the table. Stregoni is at the fifth position right now, but stand more than a reasonable chance to get to the top.
They took apart Venezia, at home, with a 3-0 scoreline, in the last league game. But their away form is a cause for concern, and it surely needs to improve if the team has ambitions for the top spot or at least the podium.

Salernitana vs Benevento Prediction
Granata needs to bounce back from their recent stumbles, and they have a perfect opportunity for that. The team boasts a 100% winning record at home against this rival, and the Sorcerers have really been unimpressive in their away ties. In their last eight games on the road, they could register only a single win, and it came against the last-placed side in the league, Padova, and that too for a 0-1 scoreline.
Angelo Gregucci’s men should take advantage of this situation and go all in for the win. But a huge scoreline is out of the question considering their frontline that is out of form.
The team scored exactly one goal in each of their last five home-ties and recorded a win of one-goal margin in three of their last four home h2h ties. I think we can expect a narrow win for the hosts, and a 1-0 ending is the most probable one.
