Benevento is coming to this match after a 2:3 victory against Frosinone, away from home. The first part of the match was reserved for excitement when as many as four goals had been scored.
Visitors, despite being considered an underdog in this one by the bookmakers, were able to go on a break with deserved 1:3 lead. In the second part, hosts were slightly more aggressive, and they managed to reduce the deficit to 2:3 with a goal in the 59th minute but were unable to do much more in this encounter, against the team that is convincingly the best in Serie B this season.
Benevento is in the first place in the overall standings, and promotion to Serie A awaits them, as they secured it many rounds ago.
Midfielder Schiattarella (25/0) is out suspended. Injured are defenders Letizia (31/1), Volta (15/0) and midfielder Viola (27/9).
Chievo managed to record a very important home win the last match against Cittadella, with 4:1. The guests took the lead first in the 11th minute, but they were left with the player less on the pitch in the 38th minute when Ghiringhelli received a second yellow card.
The home team took advantage of this situation in the best possible way, as they scored four goals afterward via Rigione, Vignato, Di Noia, and Djordjevic, leaving the visitors without any hope of taking at least a point here.
Chievo is currently at the ninth place with just a point less than playoff placed Salernitana, so we can expect an aggressive play from them in these last two matches.
The guests will miss defender Cesar (21/0), also Vaisanen (16/1), Frey (10/0), plus midfielder Giaccherini (23/5) and forward Meggiorini (26/8), all due to injuries.
With Chievo being so close to the playoff phase, I see them in a total focus on trying to take all three points in this clash. They have the capabilities to be dangerous for any team, as they scored in a majority of matches this season. On the other side, they have a team that is by far the best in the Serie B this season, needless to say, anything about their offensive capabilities. Whenever Chievo tries to risk, they do look quite vulnerable at the back. Today should be no different.
