Benevento vs Milan build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Back-to-back wins has seen Benevento move into Serie A’s top 10 and one of those successes came at home against Genoa, which extended their unbeaten run at Stadio Ciro Vigorito to three matches. Before that run they suffered consecutive losses (1-2 vs Napoli and 0-3 vs Spezia), the latter of which was the only time since returning to Italy’s top division this season Gli Stregoni failed to score in their own stadium.
The Rossoneri are certain to provide a stern examination having now gone 26 league matches unbeaten, with 13 of those coming on the road. Milan have so far won six of their seven away matches in 2020/21, registering 15 goals and conceding just seven times, which leaves Stefano Pioli’s men so far enjoying the best away day record in Serie A this season.
- Benevento (vs Udinese): Montipo; Letizia, Tuia, Glik, Barba; Schiattarella, Ionita, Improta; Insigne, Lapadula, Caprari.
- Milan (vs Lazio): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kalulu, Romagnoli, Hernandez*; Tonali, Krunic; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic; Leao.
Benevento are missing Iago Falque (muscle), Christian Maggio (calf) and Luca Caldirola (physical discomfort) for this weekend’s clash. Theo Hernandez serves a one-match suspension, whilst no fewer than four Milan players are in the physio room: Samu Castillejo (physical discomfort), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (calf), Matteo Gabbia (knee) and Ismael Bennacer (thigh).
Players to watch:
Benevento: A visit from the league leaders is a great test and Benevento go into this game looking to do what no Serie A side has done this season and that’s beat Milan, who incidentally hold the league’s remaining unbeaten record. The hosts are buoyed following recent wins, and seeing leading marksman Gianluca Caprari (with four goals) on the scoresheet last time out against Udinese was a warm feeling. His effort in the ninth minute ended a seven-game scoring drought and having previously netted at home when Inter Milan came knocking (albeit in a 2-5 loss) he’ll be confident of giving the Rossoneri a scare.
Milan: The missing presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic hasn’t led to a downturn in fortune regarding AC Milan who are seeking championship glory. In fact, the enigmatic Swede did a great job lifting those around him, and everywhere you look someone is stepping up. None more so than Turkish playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu who is reportedly close to penning a new deal. He’s presently in a three-way battle to be crowned as this season’s ‘assist king’, having created no fewer than six goals — same as Dries Mertens (Napoli) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Roma) — but the former Bayer Leverkusen man is on his own island when it comes to chances created; his 53 to date is 20 more than second best. Last time out against Lazio (3-2) he played a key role in all three of Milan’s goals: converting from the spot whilst creating for Ante Rebic and Theo Hernandez’s 90th-minute winner.
