The Gialloblu enter the midweek round of fixtures ninth in the table, while Benevento are just seven points above the dropzone after a run of eight games without a win.
That late goal ensures that Ivan Juric's side are now unbeaten in three league games, having previously defeated Parma 2-1 and played out a 2-2 draw with Genoa.
Not since January 2016 have Verona drawn three league games in a row, but victory will be the target for Juric in midweek, with a European spot not entirely out of the question.
Indeed, Hellas are now eight points behind Lazio in seventh, which would be enough for a place in the newly-formed Europa Conference League next season.
Benevento's aim at this stage is on avoiding the drop, sitting as they do just seven points above the relegation zone following a rare win for 18th-placed Cagliari at the weekend.
Since beating Cagliari 2-1 on January 6, the Sorcerers have lost four and drawn four, most recently going down 2-0 to Lazio on Sunday.
Drawing 0-0 with Roma last time out at home was a positive enough result for Filippo Inzaghi's charges, but they have now gone back-to-back games without netting.
A good omen for Benevento is that the home team has won each of the three Serie A meetings between these sides, with the Sorcerers prevailing 3-0 the last time they hosted this fixture.
Benevento Serie A form: DLDDDL
Hellas Verona Serie A form: WLLWDD
Inzaghi has operated with a 4-3-2-1 formation that is spearheaded by Gianluca Lapadula, who is looking to score against the same side home and away in a single Serie A campaign for just the third time.
Darko Lazovic is another who will be hopeful of a place in the XI after setting up Barak's goal as a second-half substitute last time out.
Barak and Kevin Lasagna have each scored three goals in three Serie A meetings versus Benevento - against no other sides have they scored more often in the top flight.
Benevento possible starting lineup:
Montipo; Depaoli, Tuia, Barba, Foulon; Viola, Insigne, Hetemaj; Ionita, Caprari; Lapadula
Hellas Verona possible starting lineup:
Silvestri; Magnani, Gunter, Lovato; Faraoni, Sturaro, Ilic, Lazovic; Barak, Zaccagni; Lasagna
We say: Benevento 2-2 Hellas Verona
Benevento are on a bad run of form and are now well and truly in a relegation battle, whereas Verona look good value for a top-half finish after holding Juventus last time out.
However, the home side have drawn their last three matches at Stadio Ciro Vigorito and we can see them taking a point from Wednesday evening's clash.
