Team News: Benevento
We are thinking that Benevento look set to opt for a 4-3-3 system for this one with Alberto Paleari, Gaetano Letizia, Alessandro Vogliacco, Kamil Glik, Edoardo Masciangelo, Andres Tello, Giacomo Calo, Gennaro Acampora, Roberto Insigne, Gabriele Moncini and Artur Ionita.
Team News: Monza
Monza manager Giovanni Stroppa has multiple availability issues to deal with. Lorenzo Pirola (Knee Surgery) and Matteo Scozzarella (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) will miss out on this game. Gastón Ramírez will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
There’s a good chance that Brianzoli will likely begin the game with a 3-5-2 lineup, starting Michele Di Gregorio, Giulio Donati, Luca Marrone, Luca Caldirola, Marco D'Alessandro, Andrea Colpani, Andrea Barberis, Luca Mazzitelli, Carlos Augusto, Patrick Ciurria and Mattia Valoti.
When taking everything into account, Monza might well have a job on their hands to see themselves scoring against this Benevento lineup who we reckon will score one, at least.
That’s why we have predicted a very even contest with a 1-0 win for Benevento at the conclusion of the game.
Let’s see how this one goes.
