Italy: Serie A
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
During the current championship of the Italian Serie A the closest opponents demonstrate absolutely different, even extra opposite level of the game. Thus is the result!
According to the results of 22 rounds Napoli is the only leader of the champion race (57 points). But the closest opponent of Azzurri - Benevento, having taken the last 20th line throughout the whole calendar season very soon will lose even a theoretical possibility of staying in Serie A.
Napoli (the head coach Maurizio Sarri)
After renewal of the national championship in the third week-end of January Azzurri in two last matches have shown 100% result, having won over Atalanta (1:0) and Bologna (3:1).
At the same time Maurizio Sarri's team has prolonged the general winning streak up to six victories in a row and now there are no doubts in another successful meeting of Neapolitans at home arena with the hopeless underdog of an elite division.
Benevento (the head coach Roberto De Zerbi)
During the first half of this season eleven different rivals have visited the debutant. And here, during the meetings of the underdog against traditional favorites of Serie A we see a zero-sum game:
Roma (0:4), Inter (1:2), Fiorentina (0:3), Lazio (1:5).
Only the seven-time champion of Europe Milan has managed to lose points (2:2) at home arena that belongs to Benevento. However, a game of Rossoneri in the current championship doesn't stand up to scrutiny …
And now the only leader of the champion race and the recent participant of the group stage of the UEFA European Championship became the 12th guest rival of the main challenger for decrease in class.
Undoubtedly, the favorite of the forthcoming meeting is obvious! However because of absolutely unattractive bookmaker quotation (W2) we present to your attention absolutely different betting variant.
Benevento – 17.00, draw – 7.00, Napoli – 1.17;
