📊 Form Guide
Perugia will be looking for an improved result here after the 3-2 Serie B loss in their previous game against Venezia.
In that match, Perugia managed 42% possession and 14 shots at goal with 4 on target. For Perugia, the goals were scored by Gregorio Luperini (64') and Tiago Casasola (78'). Venezia got 10 shots on goal with 5 on target. Nicholas Pierini (26'), Andrea Carboni (42') and Mikael Egill Ellertsson (60') scored for Venezia.
Perugia have really struggled up front in more recent games. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 3 vs opposition teams over their previous six matches. In those games, Perugia have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them come to 12. We will find out if that trend will be sustained into this next match.
Ahead of this meeting, Perugia haven’t won at home in the past 6 league games. Fans are getting restless.
Benevento head into the game following on from a 2-1 Serie B win to beat Modena in their previous match.
In that match, Benevento had 43% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. For Benevento, the goalscorers were Camillo Ciano (30') and Daam Foulon (45'). On the other side, Modena had 21 attempts at goal with 4 on target. Davide Diaw (19') was the scorer for Modena.
Benevento have regularly broken through opposing defences in the lead-up to this encounter, having scored 8 times in their last 6 matches. While their manager Andrea Agostinelli will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Benevento have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same clashes.
A look at their previous results shows us that Benevento:
- are undefeated by Perugia when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 matches in the league.
- are without a win away from home in their last 10 matches in the league. A poor run.
🤜🤛 Head to head
A glance at their prior head to head clashes going back to 06/04/2019 shows that Perugia have won 1 of them and Benevento 4, with the number of drawn results standing at 1.
A total of 13 goals were scored between them in these games, with 5 of them for Perugia and 8 being from Benevento. That is an average goals per game value of 2.17.
The last league match featuring these sides was Serie B match day 19 on 26/12/2022 when it finished Benevento 0-2 Perugia.
On that occasion, Benevento managed 61% possession and 19 shots at goal with 3 on target.
On the other side, Perugia got 21 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. Francesco Lisi (45') and Gregorio Luperini (83') scored.

📰 Team News: Perugia
Cristian Dell'Orco (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Aleandro Rosi (Unknown Injury) will be missing for Perugia gaffer Fabrizio Castori. Tiago Casasola cannot play in this game through suspension.
It seems likely that Perugia should kick off with a 3-5-2 formation in the match with Alessio Abibi, Filippo Sgarbi, Marcos Curado, Gabriele Angella, Ryder Matos, Leonardo Capezzi, Paolo Bartolomei, Simone Santoro, Francesco Lisi, Samuel Di Carmine and Giuseppe Di Serio.
ℹ️ Team News: Benevento
Benevento manager Andrea Agostinelli has not got a full squad to pick from. Antonino La Gumina (Unknown Injury), Simy (Unknown Injury), Riccardo Capellini (Inguinal Hernia) and Gennaro Acampora (Knee Injury) miss out here. Gaetano Letizia will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We are inclined to think that Benevento could decide to make use of a 3-5-2 formation using Alberto Paleari, Hamza El Kaouakibi, Kamil Glik, Alin Tosca, Andrés Tello, Nermin Karić, Lorenzo Carfora, Krzysztof Kubica, Daam Foulon, Camillo Ciano and Diego Farias.
Our feeling is that Benevento have the firepower to get a goal against this Perugia outfit, however that possibly won’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We’re tipping a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning score for Perugia at full-time. It should be a decent one.
