As soon as they’re announced...


AC Milan: L/D/D/D/D

The Rossoneri will know this is a wonderful chance to turn things around. The previous five fixtures have been winless, and the team is in a general funk, mostly attributed to their ability to finish. Milan’s front men of Suso and Hakan have done well to create chances but have failed to capitalize as the carousel of strikers continues to turn. Patrick Cutrone, Andre Silva, and even Nikola Kalinic have been rotated in and out as of late, no one proving effective. Yet, here come bottom-feeding Benevento, who have by far the worst goal differential in Serie A at -50. If Milan is looking to pour on a heap of goals, this will be the match. However, if they continue to struggle, against this already relegated side, we might be in for one desperate finish.

Benevento: L/W/L/D/L

Chieck Diabate will be the key factor going into this match. The man has been on fire as of late scoring braces against Juventus and Sassuolo. One could also argue Benevento is in their best form of the season at the moment, picking up more points in a five game span, than all year long. Yet, there should be an obvious class difference in this match and as long as Milan can stay ahead of the mental lapses they’ve suffered as of late, the Rossoneri should be looking at an easy three points.


3-0 Milan

Diabate and Benevento are in their best form of the season, however, that’s probably not saying all that much. This already relegated side has struggled mightily to keep opponents out of the net and a match like this can really help Milan break out of their scoring funk. Combine that with being home at the San Siro, I suspect we have a nice, easy three points to hang our hats on, and finish the season strong.
