Benevento – Sassuolo – Serie A: 18th November 2017
Benevento ranks 20th in the Serie A, with 0 points accumulated in 12 championship games. The hosts have a very weak season, being already secure victims for relegation. They did not manage to accumulate any points so far, the last stage losing to Juventus champion, with the score of 2-1. Italian A. Cicciretti is the team’s top scorer in the championship, having 2 goals scored so far. The hosts will not be able to rely on the injured P. Iemmello in this duel.
On the other side, Sassuolo is on the 17th position of the first league in Italy, the team having 8 points after 12 stages. The guests are in a continuous drop in form, with 3 consecutive defeats in the championship. The previous round, Sassuolo slipped on his own, 0-2 in front of AC Milan. Italian M. Politano is the best scorer in the championship, with 2 goals scored in 12 games. D. Berardi, C. Dell’Orco and T. Letschert will not perform this move because of medical problems.
Both teams traverse a very poor time, so players’ morale is definitely on the ground. I’m expecting a modest, playless show without too many phases of the gate.
