Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Udinese will be looking to climb to the top half of the table when they host Benevento at their Dacia Arena. The Zebrette have been in a fine form of late, and it is no wonder bookies see them as favourites to win the midweek clash. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Argentine midfielder Rodrigo de Paul. Jajalo, Okaka, and Nuytinck are all sidelined with injuries, while Forestieri is rated doubtful for the game.
Benevento, on the other hand, have been producing fine displays on their return to the Serie A, with the team sitting in the middle of the table ahead of Matchday 14. The newcomers did well to beat Genoa 2-0 at home at the weekend, but seeing that they failed to find the net in the previous two away games in the Serie A, home win should be considered this time out. Schiattarella is banned for the visitors, with Caldirola, Maggio, and Volta missing the game with injuries.
