AS Roma vs Benevento Prediction & Betting tips
The Serie A weekend will be closed by AS Roma and Benevento. The PhD student achieved good results and is therefore on six points. AS Roma only earned five points and also lost one point due to an administrative error. Can Benevento maintain or even expand its lead over Roma?
At AS Roma there was plenty of hectic time on deadline day again. In the closing minutes of the transfer period, Chris Smalling was taken from Manchester United. Smalling played thirty games for Roma last season on a rental basis and was even given the nickname Smaldini. Ultimately, the clubs agreed for a transfer fee of 15 million euros. On the other hand, Justin Kluivert just left for RB Leipzig and goalkeeper Robin Olsen went to Everton. Smalling was not the first acquisition of the Romans this summer, but Jordan Veretout and Pedro, among others, were brought in.
Both Veretout and Pedro already proved their worth in Rome. Veretout scored both goals in the 2-2 draw against Juventus, one from the penalty spot, Pedro made the only goal for Udinese in the most recent match.
Benevento seemed to be going through a lot at Sampdoria in the first game of the season, it was already 2-0 behind within eighteen minutes. Gli Stregoni – or the wizards / witches – managed to turn this backlog into a not undeserved 2-3 victory and so Filippo Inzaghi had a perfect start to the season. Subsequently, there was a big loss to Inter, but also to Bologna.
The fact that Benevento immediately competes well at the highest level is not entirely surprising. They brought in 31 seasons of Serie A and Ligue 1 experience this summer with players such as Artur Ionita, Gianluca Caprari, Bryan Dabo and Polish international Kamil Glik. Glik even earns a net 2.5 million euros per season, more than, for example, Inter player Danilo D’Ambrosio, Napoli player Matteo Politano and all players of Atalanta. Moreover, Inzaghi’s team was already supreme in Serie B last season, where it became champion with a very large lead.
