Benevento – Lazio

Benevento hosts Lazio in a match from the 11th round of the Italian Serie A.

Benevento are just terrible since the start of the new season. They have not won a single point in the first ten rounds of the campaign. Benevento’s record so far is ten consecutive losses and a goal difference of 3:24, which proves that this team was just not ready to play in the Serie A. And as it looks now, they will have real difficulties in their quest of surviving in the league.

Now Benevento faces one of the strongest teams in the league. Lazio are currently 4th in the Serie A standings with 25 points won and a record of eight wins, one draw and one loss. They are on par with the champion Juventus and on just three points behind the leader Napoli.

Right now Lazio are in an amazing run of five consecutive wins, which is a great stat for Simone Inzaghi’s team. Lazio are playing very good and they are winning, proving to be one of the contenders for a place in the Top 4.

Now Lazio will try once again to add three points to their active, facing the weakest team in the league. Based on performances until now, it’d be a huge shock if Benevento wins its first points in the league against a team of Lazio’s calibre. Right now Benevento do not look like a team who can trouble the best sides in the league, but how we know well – in football anything is possible.

Dusan Basta is not avaliable for Lazio, because of a thigh injury. In same time Felipe Anderson and Wallace are doubtful for the away team, because of injuries.

Lazio are the huge favourite here, because Benevento do not look able to match against the best sides in the league. But let’s wait and see what’s going to happen.
