Team News: Benevento
The Benevento manager Fabio Caserta will be thankful to have no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a fully healthy group to pick from.
Team News: Cittadella
From a largely full-strength squad, there is only a single fitness problem for the Cittadella manager Edoardo Gorini to contend with. Luigi Cuppone (Ulnar fracture) won’t be in action.
Our thinking is that Cittadella will have to play well to see themselves scoring against this Benevento lineup who we think might well score & stay on top.
We’re therefore predicting a narrow 1-0 victory for Benevento at the end of this game.
It should be a good one.
