Pisa vs Benevento prediction, preview, team news and more


Benevento take a trip to the Arena Garibaldi – Stadio Romeo Anconetani to face Pisa in the second leg of their Serie B promotion playoff semi-finals on Saturday.

The hosts will head into the game seeking to overturn their one-goal deficit after Gli Stregoni secured a 1-0 victory in Tuesday’s reverse leg.

Pisa suffered a blow in their hopes of a playoff final as Gianluca Lapadula’s 85th-minute strike saw Benevento secure a 1-0 victory when the sides met in their semi-final first leg on Tuesday.

Prior to that, they picked up a 2-1 win at Frosinone on May 6 which saw their run of four games without a win on the road come to an end.

Pisa head into the weekend unbeaten in each of their last nine home matches, picking up four wins and five draws, and will look to keep the juggernaut rolling.

Meanwhile, Tuesday’s result was Benevento’s second consecutive playoff victory after they saw off Ascoli 1-0 in the opening round on May 13.

They head into the weekend unbeaten in all but one of their last nine games against Pisa, picking up four wins and four draws since a 2-0 loss back in 2013.

Benevento finished seventh in the Serie B standings this season after picking up 63 points from 38 games.
