Which records could Benevento break?

Benevento have lost their opening 13 Serie A games, breaking the record for worst start in a top five European league.

The newly-promoted side lost to Sassuolo in the last minute yesterday, to break a record set by Manchester United in the 1930-31 season.

Unfortunately for the Streghe, there are still several unwanted records they could accumulate before the end of the season.

The worst ever points total in the Italian top flight was Catania with 12 in the 1983-84 season, but that was in a 16-team Serie A with two points for a win.

Zeman: ‘Immobile isn’t a surprise’

Zdenek Zeman isn’t surprised by Ciro Immobile’s form this season - “with me he scored 28 goals”.

The Lazio striker is top of the Serie A scoring charts, and is expected to lead the line for Italy when they take on Sweden in the first leg of their World Cup play-off tonight.

“For me he’s not a surprise,” Pescara Coach Zeman shrugged, speaking to Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno.

Di Biagio hails Zeman impact

Italy Under-21s boss Luigi Di Biagio has hailed the ‘incredible’ impact of Pescara boss Zdenek Zeman on the Azzurri’s young players.

Zeman played a key role in the development of several Italy internationals, including Ciro Immobile, Marco Verratti and Lorenzo Insigne, and Di Biagio watched his U21s side lose 2-1 to Pescara on Thursday night.

“It was a friendly that allowed us to get minutes under our belts because many of these lads haven’t played for a while,” he said after the match.

‘Italy, don’t give up Insigne!’

Pescara boss Zdenek Zeman has urged Italy not to overlook Napoli attacker Lorenzo Insigne for their World Cup playoff against Sweden.

Insigne is expected to miss out when Italy take on Sweden in Friday’s first leg, with Ciro Immobile and Andrea Belotti tipped to start up top, but Zeman felt the Azzurri could not afford to “give up” his former protege.

“Italy are favourites,” the veteran Coach said after the Delfini’s 2-1 win against Italy Under 21s on Thursday.

U21: Italy beaten by Pescara

Gigi Di Biagio insists the Italy Under-21 side’s defeat to Zdenek Zeman’s Serie B team Pescara was “a good test.”

The Azzurrini lost 2-1 at the Stadio Adriatico in a run-out, as Luca Vido’s opener was wiped out by Leonardo Mancuso and Pierluigi Cappelluzzo.

Both Vido and Milan striker Patrick Cutrone hit the woodwork.

“It’s always a pleasure to see Zeman again and he really hasn’t changed,” smiled Italy Under-21 Coach Di Biagio.

“Torreira is simply confirming what he did during his first Serie A season,” agent Pablo Bentancur told FCInter1908.

“I don’t know for sure if Spalletti likes him, but I have no doubts Lucas would be perfect for his tactics at Inter.

Sampdoria-Roma rescheduled

Sampdoria’s abandoned game with Roma will be played on December 13 or January 24, depending on the Coppa Italia.

The match was scheduled for Week 3, but had to be called off due to the weather in Genoa.

Today the extraordinary commissioner of the Lega Serie A has confirmed that the match will be played on Wednesday December 13 at 19.45 UK time.

That is provided the Blucerchiati aren’t in the Last 16 of the Coppa Italia, where they’d face Fiorentina on that date.
