In the latest Serie A battle, who are the main players and key battles to watch out for? Below we take a look at the most likely head to heads that will decide the game. AC Milan take on Filippo Inzaghi's Benevento away from home as the Rossoneri look to kick off 2021 with a win.

H2H Key Areas

Right Back vs Left Forward

Gaetano Letizia vs Ante Rebic

The full-back is one of Benevento’s top scorers, with 3 goals this season, making him the second top scorer in their squad. Somewhat similar to Theo Hernandez, it will be important for Milan to watch out for goals coming from the defender, and Rebic might need to help cover if overlapping runs are made.

Striker vs Centre Back

Gianluca Caprari vs Alessio Romagnoli

4 goals in 12 appearances this season make the Italian second striker Benevento’s best-performing attacker, with a familiar Lapadula making space and using his energy to give opposing defenders a lot to think about. Romagnoli will need to ensure that the returning Kjaer has cover, especially after returning from a recent injury.

Goalkeeper vs Striker

Lorenzo Montipò vs Rafael Leao

The Benevento Keeper has had an interesting season so far, with 23 goals conceded yet 5 clean sheets kept in 14 games. Leao will want to make it 15 games and still 5 clean sheets for the Italian, and add to his 3 goals so far.

Rebic Winner

Romagnoli Winner
