- Benevento have scored in 75% of their Serie A games
- Atalanta have won 19 of their last 25 clashes with newly-promoted sides
- Four of the visitors’ last five matches have seen both teams score
Benevento to fall short
Benevento are certainly enjoying this stint in Serie A better than their last, when they went down in a dismal 20th place finish. They’re competitive this time around, scoring in 75% of their league games so far.
However, this is a big challenge for Benevento. They meet an Atalanta side who have won three from four and the visitors are making their move towards the top four. So far this term the Witches from the South have struggled against bigger sides. They’ve lost five of six against the top seven.
Atalanta can add to that poor record here with the visitors hitting form, while they have won both of their Serie A matches against Benevento so far. Atalanta have lost only one of their last 25 games against newly-promoted sides in Serie A (W19, D5), but four of their last five have seen both teams score.
Given that form, we’re backing Atalanta and both teams to score as our first prediction, while a 2-1 victory for the visitors is our correct score pick.
