Sassuolo vs Benevento Prediction & Match Preview

Sassuolo vs Benevento
Italy Serie A
Date: Friday, 11 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: MAPEI Stadium, Reggio Emilia.

Two sides who have largely exceeded expectations so far this season lock horns on Friday evening with Sassuolo still within touching distance of the top four and Benevento going along nicely in mid-table. 

The hosts went back to basics last week as they responded to their chastening 0-3 defeat to Internazionale with a hard-fought goalless draw at Roma. 

That is now four clean sheets in the last five matches for Roberto De Zerbi’s men and another tight contest is expected here against Benevento, against whom only Juventus have scored in their last three matches. With these factors in mind, it could be worth backing the Under 2.5 Goals market to land once again here.

Team News:

Inzaghi will be able to call upon Pasquale Schiattarella with the veteran defender having served his one-match ban.

However, Inzaghi may decide to go with the team which claimed a goalless draw at Parma last weekend.

De Zerbi could opt to hand a recall to Giacomo Raspadori, potentially at the expense of Maxime Lopez.

Barring any late fitness issues, the remainder of the starting XI could remain the same with Jeremie Boga keeping out Hamed Junior Traore.

Sassuolo possible starting lineup:
Pegolo; Ayhan, Santos, Ferrari, Rogerio; Obiang, Locatelli; Berardi, Djuricic, Boga; Raspadori

Benevento possible starting lineup:
Montipo; Letizia, Tuia, Glik, Barba; Hetemaj, Ionita, Improta; Insigne, Lapadula, Caprari
