Cittadella vs Benevento (By: Hardcore)
First game of the Italian Serie B semi-final where Cittadella will host Benevento. Cittadella comes here after their 1-2 away win in quarter-final against Spezia (which was a one legged game, only semis and above are two legged ties) while Benevento with their third place Serie B finish have qualified directly to semis (3rd place with 60 points).
Benevento has scored 61 goals during the regular season which is the third best scoring record after Brescia and Lecce (both directly promoted top two teams to Serie A). Spezia finished their season with 53 goals and 6th place and at home they are not to be taken lightly, even for Benevento.
In 7 straight home games of Cittadella hosts have been able to score but also concede in 5 games. Their last home game against Benevento here was a home defeat of 0-1 but now things are different and if Cittadella aims to finish in the final round they must score at home, Benevento at their home ground is defensively too powerful so if Cittadella fails to get a positive score today then their chances for a final round playoff are not going to be very high.
Benevento has scored in 4 out of their last 5 on the road games and they will look for at least one to make their second home leg much easier.
