AC Milan face Filippo Inzaghi’s fickle Benevento side this evening at the San Siro as Stefano Pioli looks to somehow recover after two big defeats in succession against Sassuolo and Lazio over the past two weeks. The Rossoneri have fallen out of the Champions League places and will be looking to keep pace with the pack ahead of their showdown with Juventus which will be a decider for the UCL race. Milan, Juventus and Napoli all have 66 points with 5 games to go.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns to the starting line up at long last as the side struggles for fluidity and goals without him as well as captain Alessio Romagnoli after his injury.

Milan could have two players in the starting line up get pulled on the day as Davide Calabria and Simon Kjaer are suffering from flu symptoms.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma, Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Hernandez, Bennacer, Kessie, Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic, Ibrahimovic.
