Filippo Inzaghi Brings Benevento to Serie A Promotion
Benevento ensure locking the championship in Serie B after a narrow 1-0 win over Juve Stabia on Monday (6/29/2020) local time. Benevento's single goal was scored by Marco Sau.
That result made Benevento win 76 points by winning 23 of 31 league matches, having a 24 point advantage over Crotone and Cittadella with seven matches remaining.
Ascoli was the last club to be promoted with seven matches left, and they did so in 1977-78 when only two points were awarded for victory.
Benevento was promoted to Serie A for the second time in their history, after three years ago they also appeared in the top flight of the Italian League and lost their first 14 matches.
As reported by Sportskeeda, Inzaghi trained Benevento 12 months ago. Now he will join his brother and Lazio coach, Simone, in the Italian top flight, Serie A next season.
Benevento appears to be preparing to compete in Serie A because former Chelsea and Marseille striker Loic Remy is reported to have arrived for medical tests before signing a contract.
