Benevento form and stats

Benevento, who have the most conceded goals (30) at home in Serie A, have only managed 2 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses from their games here at Stadio Ciro Vigorito.

The last victory here came in the Genoa match.

The home supporters saw a 2-2 draw versus Parma in the Serie A last time out and are looking for a win here. A strong away win before that one, visiting Juventus and winning 1-0.

Sassuolo form and stats

The visitors are W6-D3-L6 on the road this term. That's in the Serie A. The pressure to perform on the road is increasing on R. De Zerbi, the Sassuolo manager, as the last three away games were defeats.

Sassuolo lost away at Inter (1-2) in their previous game and are perhaps starting to feel homesick. Ahead of that game was the 2-2 draw at home against Roma.

Sassuolo are not goal shy away from home in the league, finding the net 25 times in 15 away games so far. Sassuolo have conceded 26 goals in these games.

Head 2 Head

The most recent history between these sides is the Sassuolo - Benevento 1-0 played earlier this season. Numbers for the last five meetings between these two teams are: zero wins for Benevento, one draw and four wins for Sassuolo. Over 2,5 goals: three times; under 2,5 goals: two games.
