MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan could be handed a boost ahead of the game against Filippo Inzaghi's newly promoted Benevento tomorrow. The report notes that right winger Samu Castillejo has been improving and could even start. Milan will be missing Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Matteo Gabbia, Ismael Bennacer, Alexis Saelemaekers to injury as well as Theo Hernandez to a suspension. Milan's centre back Simon Kjaer could also return after weeks out. Milan have to be careful as they face Juventus just three days after Benevento and will need their key players in the title defining game.

Castillejo's return will be crucial as Saelemaekers is out and he could support the attack alongside Leao, Rebic and Calhanoglu as Milan look to kick off the new year on the front foot with a win.
