Benevento is welcoming Lazio to Stadio Ciro Vigorito in round 12 in the Italian Serie A.
Benevento is one of the weakest teams in Serie A this season, and they have won only 1 of their last 9 games. With only 11 points, 12 scored goals, and 22 conceded goals, Benevento is in 15th place, which is outside the relegation zone. Benevento was playing against Sassuolo in their last Serie A game on the road, and thanks to Sassuolo conceding a red card, Benevento was the better team with 52% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. Benevento has conceded a penalty kick in the 8th minute, and they weren’t able to come back despite their dominance. Benevento has lost this game 1-0. Caprari and Lapadula have each scored 3 goals for Benevento so far, while Caldriola and Letizia have each added 2 goals. Caprari and Lapadula have each added 2 assists. Volta, Viola, Maggio, Caldriola, and Mancini are all injured, and they will most likely miss this game. Benevento might be outside the relegation zone at the moment, but they will have a tough time staying there if they don’t improve their form.
Lazio has won only 1 of their last 5 games, but they got lucky in the Champions League, and they will be playing against Bayern in the knockout stage. Lazio was hosting Verona in their latest Serie A game, and they were solid with 60% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. Lazio conceded a goal in the 45th minute, but they got back in the game in the 56th minute. Lazio conceded another goal in the 67th minute. This was a rough game with a lot of fouls, and Lazio lost 1-2. Lazio is struggling so far this season, and they are now in 9th place in the Serie A standings with 17 points, 17 scored goals, and 19 conceded goals. Immobile is the leading goalscorer with 6 goals, while Caicedo added 4 goals. Milinkovic-Savic has scored 3 goals and added 2 assists. Proto, Lulic, and Muriqi are all injured, while Acerbi is still questionable. Lazio could have gotten the easier opponent in the Champions League, but who knows, maybe they get lucky against Bayern. As far as Serie A goes, Lazio is out of the title race, and they will need to play a lot better if they want to reach the Champions League spot.
Benevento has never beaten Lazio, and I don’t think they will start now. Lazio is the better team here, and they haven’t lost any of their last 6 games on the road. We are getting Lazio at a great price, and I’m taking it.
