Tip Reasoning

  • Fiorentina have won their last three matches, scoring ten goals.
  • Vincenzo Italiano’s team have scored 17 goals in their last five home games, and won six of eight on home turf this season.
  • Serie B outfit Benevento have the joint-best attacking record in their division, with 29 goals in 16 games.

Fiorentina up for the cup?

With Serie A shaping up for a thrilling four-team title race and Fiorentina sat in an impressive fifth, a run at the Coppa Italia, which they last won in 2001, may not be an unrealistic target for Vincenzo Italiano’s goal-happy team. Fiorentina have won their last three games, scoring ten goals, and hammered lowly Salernitana 4-0 on Saturday.

The hosts also boast a superb home record, winning six of eight games in Florence, and netting 17 goals across their last five matches in front of their own fans. No away team has kept a clean sheet at the Stadio Artemio Franchi this term, and if Italiano takes the cup seriously, we should expect more entertainment on Wednesday.

Visitors Benevento, relegated from Serie A last term, are challenging for a top-flight return, and sit fourth in Serie B. They boast the joint-best attacking record in their division, scoring 29 in 16 games, and have the league’s top scorer, Gianluca Lapadula, who is already into double figures this term after netting eight in Serie A last year.

Viola’s firepower should see them through

Although Benevento will have one eye on next weekend’s huge clash with fellow promotion-chasers Monza, they do have the capacity to breach the Fiorentina backline. However, Italiano’s team are beginning to hit their stride after an inconsistent start, and should continue their fine goalscoring record in front of their own fans.

A home win with over 2.5 match goals seems a decent way of securing value for this clash; all but one of Fiorentina’s 10 Serie A wins this season have featured three or more goals. An entertaining 3-1 home victory, for the same reasons, seems a solid correct score prediction.
