Benevento vs Fiorentina Match Prediction

By William Hall

Bottom of the league Benevento welcome Fiorentina to the Stadio Ciro Vigorito this weekend in Serie A. Benevento have had a horrible start to live in Serie A currently sat bottom of the league with no points to show for their efforts. Last time out they were beaten 1-0 away to Hellas Verona which was expected especially after going down to ten men in the first half. Fiorentina put an end to four games without a win after beating Udinese 2-1 on home soil. They will be looking to put back to back Serie A wins together for the second time this season. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

For me, there is only going to be one winner this weekend. Although Benevento have looked better in their last couple of games, they are still struggling to go out and take points offsides which will flatten the mood within the squad every week. Fiorentina haven't been the best in their last few outings, but coming into this one off the back of a win will give them the confidence they need to go out and get all three points. There is no doubt that on paper Fiorentina have by far the better side and should go out and win it. My only worry for them is that they feel like the game is already won and will go out and play well under par. Here are my favourite betting tips and predictions for the game.

Fiorentina to win - 8/13

Over 2.5 goals - 4/6

Benevento saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Benevento have conceeded only 3 goals in their last 1 games against Fiorentina

Fiorentina saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Fiorentina are undefeated in all of their last 1 games against Benevento

Benevento Preview

Benevento are struggling to cope with the demand of Serie A losing eight games out of eight, scoring just two goals and conceding nineteen. They need something significant to change in the next couple of months if they are to stand any chance of staying in the league come the end of the season. They are already five points adrift of safety which even at this stage looks as if it could be a gap too big to catch up on. In the last couple of matches, Benevento have looked better, only losing by one goal to Inter Milan and Hellas Verona, but it is still not good enough for a side who are looking to enjoy their season in the Italian top league. Last season their home ground was a fortress in the second tier. They will need to try and get as many points as possible when at home if they are to give themselves a chance of survival.

Benevento Team News

Benevento have three players out this weekend with Andrea Costa (muscle injury), Marco D'alessandro (knee injury) and Luca Antei (suspension) all sidelined.

Fiorentina Preview

Fiorentina got their first win in four games last weekend after beating Udinese 2-1 at home. They played very well going 2-0 up in the game, a goal from Udinese with just under 20 minutes to put the pressure on the home side but they were able to hold out for all three points. They will look at this game and feel it is a perfect chance to put back to back wins together to get their season correctly up and running. However, they must not go into the game feeling it is won before Benevento will always put 110% effort into every game this season, even if they are not picking up the results they are after. Cyril Thereau has been the sides biggest threat this season scoring three goals in six appearances. He will be backing himself to get on the scoresheet this weekend.

Fiorentina Team News

Fiorentina will be without just one with Gil Bastiao Dias suffering with a foot injury which will keep him out until early November.
