Verona vs Benevento
Italian Serie A – Season 2017/18
Date: Monday, 16th October 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi, Verona.
The two sides that will be aiming to turn their season around will collide at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi, where Verona host Benevento. Both sides are extremely struggling in the Italian top flight and a victory would be a huge confidence boost.
Verona have collected only three points from the opening seven games. Along with Genoa and Benevento, they are the only team that is yet to register a victory in the current campaign.
The home team has scored only three goals so far while allowing 16. Their -13 goal difference is quite poor and unless they step up in the upcoming games they could easily face the relegation at the end of the season.
Benevento are making Verona’s woes look like child’s play. The newly-promoted side is basically already relegated. They are yet to earn a single point this season as they suffered a defeat in each of their seven games played in Serie A so far.
The visitors have only scored twice while conceding 18 goals. Benevento are both the worst attack and defense of the league and are deservedly glued to the bottom.
