Lazio and Benevento friendly stalemate

Lazio and Benevento drew 0-0 in their pre-season friendly, with no winners between brother coaches Simone and Pippo Inzaghi.

They will meet again in Serie A this season, but both their Week 1 fixtures were postponed to September 30.

That is because Lazio’s opponents Atalanta and Benevento’s rivals Inter finished their 2019-20 seasons late due to the Champions League and Europa League Final Eight participation.

The teams therefore faced off in a friendly at the Stadio Olimpico and there were no goals, as Joaquin Correa and Ciro Immobile had a few chances, while Thomas Strakosha made a splendid save on Gianluca Caprari’s header.

Lazio: Strakosha; Patric (Bastos 81), Acerbi, Radu (Armini 81); Lazzari (Djavan Anderson 81), Akpa Akpro (Kiyine 76), Leiva (Escalante 67), Parolo (Caicedo 67), Lukaku (Marusic 67); Correa (Cataldi 76), Immobile (Adekanye 81)

Benevento: Montipò; Letizia (Improta 68), Glik (Tuia 67), Caldirola, Foulon (Maggio 67); Ionita (Kragl 67), Schiattarella (Del Pinto 76), Dabo (Hetemaj 67); Caprari (Lapadula 67), Moncini (Sau 67), Insigne (Tello 67)
