AC Milan must win this game against Benevento or we go into the next one with too much pressure allowing Juventus to pick us apart. Stefano Pioli has as closer as he will ever get to a full squad and needs to utilise his men well. Ibrahimovic is back, let’s hope he gets scoring!

Players to Watch

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

iZ back. After all the PR of the new contract fades and all the merchandising has come to pass, the striker will be judged for his ability to keep this team together for the final five games of the season so as to not throw it all away. If Milan finish in a UEL place, we are no different to any of the past seasons since 2017/18 with Cutrone, Silva and Piatek. Ibrahimovic needs to lead with a solid start today and a big win against Juventus next week.

Alessio Romagnoli

This is a big game for Romagnoli as it marks his return for a difficult injury and an even harder period for the club where Tomori took his place and the club struggled for consistent results. His role in this game is to be the leader of the pack, he needs to show that he is the captain of this side and needs that kind of a performance to keep us at least on level terms with Juventus ahead of next week’s clash.

Gianluca Caprari

Caprari has been the main creator for Benevento this season with 5 goals and 5 assists but he will be missing out on the cover provided by Marco Sau this evening. He will be the man for Kessie to hound all game and to be kept away from our fragile wing backs. Caprari is a tricky player who can create opportunities with a few touches hence will need to be limited.

Prediction: Milan 3 - 1 Benevento
