There is an enormous difference in the stature of the clubs evaluated in today’s Roma vs Benevento preview. The home side are considered one of Serie A’s giants and one of the competition’s most recognizable names, while the visitors to the Italian capital next week look like their stay in Italy’s top flight will be a fleeting one.
Things have been looking a little grim for the hosts in the run-up to this week’s free Roma vs Benevento betting tips. The Giallorossi are without a victory in seven games and though they have had quite a tricky run of fixtures, they would still have expected to collect more than three points from the eighteen available. Roma’s Cup exit to Torino really rubbed salt in their wounds, though Head Coach Eusebio Di Francesco will believe his side can restore some positivity in their ranks next week.
Benevento look certain to return to Serie B next season and in truth, they have never once looked comfortable at a higher level. The Witches have lost an incredible nineteen of their twenty-two Serie A matches since the summer, putting just seven points in total on the board this term. Roberto De Zerbi has seen his players score just thirteen times in all during a disastrous league campaign and only three of those goals were scored away from home. Make sure to read our Italian football tips below.
As we hinted at above, the away side examined in today’s OddsDigger Roma vs Benevento bets selection have the worst defensive record in Serie A this season. In fact, the Witches have lost 100% of their away games in the league this season, scoring just three times and conceding twenty-five along the way.
In three of their most recent four away fixtures, against Udinese, Bologna and Torino, Roberto De Zerbi’s men lost by two-goal margins. They were beaten 2-0 at Udinese and 3-0 in each of the other games. A repeat of either of those scores next week in Rome would see our first prediction prove correct.
The Giallorossi’s performances have been lacking in just about everything of late, though a match against the division’s worst outfit could be just what they need to shake themselves back into action. In the reverse fixture between the teams back in September, the Romans recorded a sizeable 4-0 win at the Stadio Ciro Vigorito. Taking the -1 handicap Serie A football odds at Betway gives you far better value than the outright win selection alone. The great prices at Betway Sports are superior to their competitors on this occasion.
With the home side tipped to record a victory by a comfortable margin in our Roma vs Benevento predictions, backing them to win no nil makes perfect sense, especially when you consider the terrible goalscoring record of their opponents. The Witches have scored just three goals in their eleven away fixtures this season.
In their five most recent away performances, the same patterns emerged and Benevento failed to score on any of their trips to Atalanta, Udinese, Genoa, Bologna or Torino. Their last away goal came back in November when they somehow breached Juventus’ excellent backline to grab a consolation goal in a 1-2 defeat.
The Romans might not have been able to secure any positive results over the past few weeks, but their defence has still been mostly resolute. Despite not winning any of their last trio of fixtures, they conceded just three times. The club from the capital have already kept a clean sheet against the Witches this season and I’m backing them to keep them out again next week.
