This evening, thanks to a 1-0 victory over Juve Stabia, Benevento secured their place in the 2020-21 Serie A season, despite seeing Luca Caldirola sent off after just 24 minutes.
And Pippo Inzaghi has congratulated Le Streghe for their ‘historic’ success in this Serie B season,
“I think what we did tonight really was the right image, as we were down to 10 men for almost the whole game,” Inzaghi told. “These lads achieved something historic, as there was a record of 77 points and we matched it. We won every single home game, I really don’t know what else to say.”
They even impressed by breaking records on their way to promotion. They accomplished it with a record 77 points, a huge 24 points ahead of the chasing pack with seven rounds to go.
Benevento has won 23 games in the season, drew seven and lost just one, scoring 56 goals and conceding 15:
“I am happy for the President and the director, as they believed in me. We had the best defensive record in Europe and the lads have been fabulous. They went above and beyond, as did my staff. I never expected to make history.”
Next season Pippo will be up against his brother Simone as Lazio’s coach in Serie A.
