Inter vs Benevento in Serie A: Head to Head Statistics, LIVE Streaming Link, teams stats up, results, Date, Time, Watch Live
Having spurned the chance to be crowned Italy’s ‘winter champions’ last week, Inter Milan bounced back to beat their city rivals in a fiery cup clash ahead of Saturday’s visit of Benevento.
With the ripples from a seismic Milan derby still being felt around the peninsula, Antonio Conte now prepares his men for the challenge of old Azzurri teammate Pippo Inzaghi‘s overachieving side.
Tuesday’s drama-packed Derby Della Madonnina’s success in the Coppa Italia quarter-final saw Inter progress to a similarly tantalizing semi-final with Juventus, as the Nerazzurri seized victory in the dying moments through Christian Eriksen‘s sublime free-kick.
Against ten-man Milan – depleted by Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s dismissal – it was Conte’s side that fully merited the win, which earned a measure of revenge for their league defeat to the same opposition in the autumn.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Benevento has lost all three of their previous top-flight encounters with Inter – including a 5-2 home drubbing at the start of the season.
After an unexpected 4-1 loss to fellow promoted outfit Crotone the week before, last time out they surged into a two-goal lead against Torino through a Nicolas Viola penalty and Gianluca Lapadula‘s strike, but Simone Zaza ultimately sealed a gritty Granata comeback with two second-half goals – the second of which came deep into stoppage time.
