Team News: Benevento
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the Benevento manager Filippo Inzaghi to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Luca Antei (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.
Team News: Chievo Verona
In an otherwise healthy group of players, there is just the sole fitness worry for the Chievo Verona manager Alfredo Aglietti to be concerned with. Strahinja Tanasijevic (Fractured Leg) won’t be in action.
Here, we’re thinking that Chievo Verona could find themselves struggling to score goals against this Benevento team who we think will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’re therefore seeing a good battle with a 1-0 victory for Benevento at the end of the 90.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
