AC Milan vs Benevento build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

Having led the Serie A title race for quite some time, AC Milan are now in danger of missing out on a top four spot as a result of their recent poor form. Stefano Pioli’s side have lost three of their past seven Serie A games including a key defeat to Napoli, allowing Atalanta, Juventus and Gennaro Gattuso’s side to leapfrog them in the table. However, it is far from over, as Milan are level on points with Napoli and Juventus with five games left to play, and face the latter next week. But to stay in the race for Champions League football, Milan need to win here and arrest their slump.

Benevento are also in dire need of a win this weekend, but their goal is to stay in Serie A. At the turn of the year, Benevento looked secure in Serie A, 10th with a number of worst teams below them in the table. But since a 2-1 win over Cagliari in January, Benevento have managed just one further victory in 17 (against Juventus), a run which also included nine defeats. Three losses in their past four games has seen Benevento drop into the relegation zone though, like AC Milan, they are level on points with the two teams above them.

  • AC Milan (vs Lazio): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Bennacer, Kessie; Saelamaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic; Mandzukic.
  • Benevento (vs Udinese): Montipo; Barba, Glik, Caldirola; Depaoli, Dabo, Hetemaj, Viola, Improta; Lapadula, Sau*.

AC Milan have no fresh injury concerns and will be boosted by the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Benevento, meanwhile, will be without Marco Sau who had to be taken off on a stretcher against Udinese with a hamstring injury after just 24 minutes.

Players to watch:

  • AC Milan: The reported return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic could not have come at a better time for Milan as they require someone with his experience to help them in the biggest part of their season. Ibrahimovic has won pretty much everything there is to be won during his career (in competitions he has entered) with the exception of the Champions League and Milan will need him to qualify for that competition next season. The Swede has missed the past three games through suspension and then injury, with Milan looked toothless against Lazio last weekend. Before his break, Ibrahimovic had managed just one goal in six, but the 39-year-old had been suffering with injury problems and you can bet on him coming back with a goal, especially with history on the horizon. Should Ibrahimovic score against Benevento, he’d become the first player to score against 80 different teams in Europe’s top five leagues since 2000.
  • Benevento: Although Benevento are winless in five, Gianluca Lapadula enters this game in a a decent run of form that he will be hoping to continue against his former club. It was with Milan that Lapadula made his Serie A debut in 2016, going on to play 27 league games for the club before joining Genoa. Fast forward almost three years since his departure, Lapadula will now be looking to put a big dent in his former club’s Champions League hopes having never scored against Milan. But he has scored in his past two Serie A games and is looking to net in three consecutive matches for the first time since November 2019.
