Inzaghi brothers will meet again as Benevento win promotion

The Inzaghi brothers will be meeting again next season in the Serie A after Filippo Inzaghi secured promotion to the highest league with his club Benevento. Former Cagliari striker Marco Sau came off the bench to score the only goal in Benevento’s 1-0 victory over Juve Stabia, a result that sealed the Serie B title.

Benevento has won the title with 7 games to play in the Serie B. Inzaghi has led his team to 23 wins in 31 league games this season, as the club holds a 24-point advantage over Crotone and Cittadella. Former AC Milan and Bologna boss Inzaghi took over at Benevento 12 months ago and is now set for a return to the Serie A.

Just before Benevento clinched the title, Inzaghi called on the fans to avoid gathering and respect the rules of the coronavirus pandemic. “We won’t gather because the virus is still active even if we are far away from it,” he told Il Mattino. “We would give a very nice sign, truly incredible, if the whole city would decorate their balconies, windows, terraces and welcome the players, the technical staff and managers.”

Coming back to the Italian top flight, Filippo will meet his brother Simone, who is performing very well with Lazio this season. “He is better than me in everything,” the Benevento boss said recently. “I can only learn from Simone: he is a modern coach and seeing his Lazio side is a spectacle.” Lazio sit in second place in the Serie A, just four points behind league leaders Juventus.
