Fiorentina hosts Benevento in round 8 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, November 22nd at Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence)
Fiorentina experienced glorious times at the turn of the millennium. After that, there was a bankruptcy and parting with the elite. The return to Serie A became a real breakthrough for the Violets. So far, the team from Florence cannot regain its lost positions, that is, stable participation in European Cups. Under the leadership of Cesare Prandelli, Fiorentina occupies an intermediate 12th place in the standings. In Florence, the bet is placed on footballers at the peak of their careers (the average age of players is 26.5 years). In summer, the Violets parted with their leader Federico Chiesa. Instead, the club signed a number of strong newcomers, such as Kouame, Cutrone, Callejon, Valero, Bonaventura, Duncan, Igor, Quarta, Lirola, and Barreca. The leaders of Fiorentina (Dragowski, Castrovilli, Milenkovic, Pezzella, and Pulgar) are in good shape.

Once again, Benevento appears as one of the main outsiders of the Italian elite. After seven matches played, Filippo Inzaghi's men occupy 16th place in the standings. Benevento is an uncompromising team - two wins and five losses. Now the Sorcerers are on a streak of four fiascoes in a row. The weak reliability of the defensive line became the main problem of the team (20 goals conceded). The coaching staff focuses on experienced players (the average age of the team is approaching 29). Such leaders of Benevento as Caprari, Glik, Lapadula, Caldirola, and Ionita demonstrate a good level of football at the start of the season.
The Florentine club is spending a modest season with dubious prospects for qualifying for European Cups. Benevento is even in a more difficult situation - weak defense, staff shortage, and a rather ordinary coach in the person of F. Inzaghi. The hosts of the arena have a clear advantage in the class and demonstrate better game performance (a range of football players can show significant progress during the tournament distance). We think Fiorentina will manage to cope with the resistance of the newcomers.
Prediction for the match: Fiorentina to win
