Chievo shouldn’t take anything for granted here, given that Benevento have caused problems for most of Serie A over the last couple of months. They should expect to score, though, and Polish centre-forward Mariusz Stepinski is 13/10 to score at any time with Coral. That’s good value given his effectiveness from the bench. Given Chievo’s frequent difficulty in breaking down opponents, there’s also value in the 7/2 on offer from Betway for this game to be level at half time and Chievo then to get a winner. For the Chievo vs Benevento best odds of the weekend, however, look at 12Bet who have the home side at 7/1 to win this contest 2-0.

Chievo vs Benevento Betting Tips: Form Guide

Chievo Improve Just In Time

While their city neighbours Hellas Verona have been wretched this season, and relegation was inevitable for them, Chievo’s own performance this season has often looked like that of a team that had low expectations, and wasn’t afraid to fall short of them. They’ve developed something of a habit of heroic failure against the big teams – Napoli required two late goals to beat them 2-1, while Milan’s 3-2 home win over them also required a comeback – but when it comes to the teams around them in the league, the heroism has evaporated and left behind just plain failure.

Take their opponents this weekend, for example. Benevento have been earmarked for relegation this whole season, and didn’t grab their first point until a draw with Milan in early December. Their first win? That came against Chievo right at the end of 2017. Local rivals Hellas? Yep, Chievo lost to them too, and were knocked out of the cup by them for good measure. At the beginning of May, the toll of these avoidable defeats seemed clear – i Gialloblu were heading down to join their neighbours.

However, two consecutive 2-1 wins have ensured that the Chievo vs Benevento match previews will be more optimistic than expected. Victory over fellow strugglers Crotone was managed with a minimum of fuss. Last weekend, a visit to Bologna which started inauspiciously with the hosts scoring from a 12th-minute penalty ended in victory when Roberto Inglese and Emanuele found their shooting boots early in the second half. Those three points hoisted Chievo out of the relegation zone.

Benevento’s Beguiling Tale Going Back To Serie B

There has been, and will be, many a column inch dedicated to the story of Benevento’s first-ever Serie A season. A league-record 14 straight defeats to begin the season, the run only to be broken by an on-loan keeper who headed an equaliser against Milan in the fifth minute of time added on. This is a side that, one season prior, was playing in Serie B for the first time. The words “hapless” and “farcical” may have been applied to their early-season form, but that was a little unfair – nine of those opening 14 games were lost by a single goal.

Nonetheless, it was no surprise when Benevento became the first side to be relegated from Serie A this season, and one can merely hope that the battling spirit they have forged over the course of a challenging season serves them well in Serie B. Recent results – even since their relegation – give some indication that they’ve been getting the hang of this Serie A lark. Only three of their last eight games have been lost, and that run has included wins over Hellas Verona (3-0), Milan (1-0) and Genoa (1-0).

In short, although Chievo vs Benevento betting tips may not suggest as much, the visitors are the kind of team that can present more prestigious opponents with a few awkward challenges, and this weekend will still be a nervy one for Chievo.

Chievo vs Benevento Preview: Recent Meetings

This is the second ever meeting between these sides, making Chievo the only club in Serie A against whom Benevento have a 100% record. The first meeting, in Week 19 of the Serie A campaign, marked the home team’s first win at this level.

Benevento came into the game with just that single point from the game with Milan on the board. However, despite their opponents’ mid-table standing (at the time), and the fact that the underdogs ceded most of the possession to the visitors, it was the strugglers that created more chances. In the 64th minute, they finally took one as Massimo Coda touched home a cross after a corner had been poorly cleared. Not the cleanest of finishes, but what it represented to the club is undeniable.

It’s not difficult to imagine that the December match will play on the minds of Chievo players this weekend. Although the game finished 1-0, Benevento could certainly have scored at least a couple more and Chievo can take nothing for granted this weekend.

Chievo vs Benevento Prediction: Comfortable Home Win

It’s easy to become sentimental about Benevento’s season and envisage them ending their Serie A odyssey by bringing a bit more intrigue to the final day of the season. It’s even easier because Chievo simply haven’t been very good this season. They could easily lose to Benevento because, well, they have already done that once. Added to that, we do have the fact that Benevento’s recent form has probably been slightly the better of the two sides.

However… Chievo have something to play for here. And sure, Benevento didn’t have anything to play for last week and they still beat Genoa, but Genoa are 12th in the table and as a result nothing they do has any consequence. Given home advantage, and the added motivation of knowing a win will secure their place in Serie A for another season, the only reasonable conclusion here is that Chievo will win. They may make it hard for themselves – they’ve got history in that regard – but we feel pretty definite about our Chievo vs Benevento prediction for this weekend. No-one can deny the fun that Benevento have brought to this season’s Serie A scene, but this weekend we expect them to bow out quietly.
