Fiorentina vs Benevento
BNV VS FIO MATCH PREVIEW:
The Serie A returns to action following a week break as matches had to be called off last week after Fiorentina's captain Davide Astori was found dead in his hotel room. Expect an outpouring of emotions in all Serie A matches this week and especially at Stadio Artemio Franchi when Fiorentina take on Benevento.
It will be a tough outing for Astori's teammate and the weight of the occasion may affect some players as not only they are affected by this incurable loss, but the crowd in the stadium may make it an ocean of emotions at the loss of not only their captain but a fine human being who has left his mark at every club he played for.
Talking about the match- Considering the inescapable event that happened last week, the players find it hard to give their 100% in this match. But still, we are expecting a win for the home team as Astori's teammate will want to give their former captain a fitting commemoration.
The hosts are sitting comfortably at 10th in the table, heading into this match. While the visitors are doomed and destined for Serie B next season after picking up just 3 wins all season and are rooted at the bottom of the table with just 10 points in 26 matches.

MUN vs LIV TEAM NEWS:
Fiorentina manager Stefano Pioli has no injury or suspension to worry about and has a full strength team to choose his playing XI for the first match after that tragic incident.
Sportiello (GK); Laurini, Pezzella, Milenkovic, Biraghi, Benassi, Badelj, Veretout, Chiesa, Simeone, Thereau
For visitors, Sandro could feature but needs to pass a late fitness test. However, Benevento will surely miss the services of Lucioni and Nicolas Viola as both of them are suspended. So Roberto De Zerbi should name the same playing XI which played against Verona last week.
Puggioni (GK); Letizia, Tosca, Djimsiti, Sagna, Cataldi, Guilherme, Pinto, Brignola, Coda, Djuricic
Fiorentina- 2 times Italian Champions
Benevento- No Serie A Titles
Head 2 Head- Only 1 meeting in official matches as Benevento was founded in 2005 and got promoted to Serie A only in 2017 for the first time in their history.
