Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris (Genoa)

After losing 0-1 to Mallorca in the first warm-up match, Genoa quickly returned to winning ways and surprised many, demolishing Lazio convincingly 4-1, thanks to Massimo Coda's hat-trick. Namely, Genoa faced disastrous results last season, where Rossoblù suffered relegation from Serie A after 15 years, but as the team with the biggest budget in Serie B, they are among the main candidates for a return to the top flight. Meanwhile, Benevento has shown a chaotic performance in the pre-season, particularly in attack, as they suffered a narrow 0-1 defeat at Cosenza, while sharing the spoils with Siena, in a goalless 0-0 draw. Gli Stregoni were on the verge of returning to Serie A last season, but the team was eliminated from the play-off by Pisa, thanks to the better placement of their opponents during the regular season.

Genoa vs Benevento Betting Tips: Under 2.5

The two teams have met four times so far in their history, and it should be noted that their meetings were often closed, considering that three of those four encounters ended under 2.5 goals. One of the reasons for Genoa's relegation from Serie A was their disastrous attack, which managed to find the net just 27 times during the season, while their top scorer Mattia Destro (9 goals) left the club this summer. Given their desperate attack, Genoa finished the season as the third-lowest team in terms of efficiency (an average of 2.3 goals per match), while 10 of their 12 domestic competitive games finished under 2.5 goals. Meanwhile, Benevento has finished with exactly one goal in their last three competitive games, while there were no goals on both side in 8 of their previous 10 away games. Also, one should keep in mind an interesting fact - Genoa managed to find the net only 8 times in their previous 20 games in all competitions. All things considered, we expect a tight 90 minutes in Genoa with few chances.
