GdS: Bennacer back in the midfield hoping to resume his role as the engine

By Oliver Fisher -

Tonight’s game against Fiorentina will feature the very important return of Ismael Bennacer from injury, and he is aiming to resume his role commanding the midfield.

As this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) reports, Bennacer should be back from the first minute against La Viola this evening having missed the last few games due to injury.

Looking back at the results it would be fair to say that Milan have got by without the Algerian having racked up wins against Torino, Tottenham, Monza and Atalanta, but they won despite not having Bennacer rather than as a result of.

Bennacer has a pass completion rate of 82.6 percent. He recovers balls and distributes them. Today he should return and he will find a better situation than when he last played, especially in defence, given that the team are on a good run of form.

The midfielder will then be able to get very important minutes in the legs in view of the Champions League match against Tottenham next week.
