Benevento vs Roma
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 21 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Ciro Vigorito.
Roma travel to Stadio Ciro Vigorito to battle bottom-half Benevento in the last game of an exciting Sunday Serie A schedule.
La Lupa will enter the game on a high having picked up a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Udinese last weekend. It was the third victory in the last four league outings. Such spell of form has pushed the Romans to the third position in the league ladder.
The team led by Paulo Fonseca has failed to beat any of the top-six rivals this season (Napoli, Juventus, Inter, Milan, Atalanta, and Lazio).
However, they are still ranked so high thanks to victories over weaker rivals. They have a great opportunity to keep such trend going here against Benevento who have been among the most out-of-form sides in the league in the last couple of months.
Benevento vs Roma Head-to-head
This will only be the fifth head to head clash between the two outfits.
Roma won three and lost one of the previous four meetings with Gli Stregoni. Benevento’s lone victory came in a friendly play in September 2018.
La Lupa celebrated a demolishing 5-2 victory when they met Gli Stregoni in the first half of the season in mid-October last year.
Benevento vs Roma Prediction
Benevento are winless in the last six league matches, but they are still on a safe distance from the red zone. The team led by Filippo Inzaghi sit nine points above the relegation area coming into this 23rd round clash against La Lupa.
The Gli Stregoni have not kept a clean sheet in eight successive league matches. They have the third-worst defensive record in the entire competition.
This will be the music to the ears of Roma’s forward, whoever gets the opportunity to make the starting line-up.
Borja Mayoral has been pretty efficient lately, while Edin Dzeko has returned to the squad after the recent suspension.
A victory here is of a massive importance for Roma in their quest for the top-four finish at the end of the season.
We see the away win as a genuine banker at the odds of 1.55. Over 2.5 goals Ft bet is yet another banker at the 1.50 odds.
