Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Benevento take on Bologna at their Stadio Ciro Vigorito in the opening match of the season. The Gli Stregoni made a promising start to the season, with the team beating Sampdoria 3-2 in Genoa, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure the Serie A survival. The newcomers are tough to beat at home, but the match against Bologna will be anything but a walk in the park for them.
The Rossoblu, on the other hand, welcome Dutch defender Mitchell Dijks back to the starting line-up after he served his ban against Parma. Bologna are not regarded as good travellers, but share of spoils is on the cards at Stadio Ciro Vigorito as the match will be played behind closed doors. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time in Serie A after January 2018 when Bologna outplayed Benevento 3-0.
