Venezia vs Benevento
Venezia was close to promoting in the previous season, ending the journey in semi-finals playoff stage where they were excluded by Palermo. Looking at their squad, something similar is expected this season however it's difficult to see them promoted at the very end.
Anyhow, the season has started with a 1:0 victory at home against Spezia, even though they weren't the better side in that one. Second round match saw them losing 1:0 on the road to Padova. It was a deserved loss against a side that looked far more concrete with the overall ball movement and chances created.
Even though they have three out of possible six points earned, the team didn't look that positive for now. They were a kinda weaker opponent in both of the matches. Their Cup match saw them losing 0:1 at home against Sudtirol which was a huge negative surprise.
Striker Gianluca Litteri is injured. Other than that, they should have no absentees for this one.
Benevento, on the other side, relegated from Serie A previous season and looked like the weakest link in the league for the most of the time. In the end, only twenty-one collected point wasn't enough to keep the position in the first tier of Italian football.
The new season has started with their victories over Udinese on the road (in extra time 1:2) and at home over Imolese in the Italian Cup matches, while they have played only one Serie B match. It was a 3:3 draw at home against Lecce. Their visitors were lucky in that clash and scored three goals inside the first sixty minutes of the game, in the rare chances they had.
However, everything turned for the better in last thirty minutes as Benevento reached a point in the end, thanks to goals from Volta, Ricci, and Coda. Overall, it should have been their complete victory if only they had bit better reactions in the first hour of the game.
During the international break, the side had a 2:1 victory in a friendly against Roma that rotated the squad a lot.
Of course Benevento is not a team from the previous season, but even so, they do look more promising than Venezia. Odds value is sure with the visiting side that has much more potential in attack.
