AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is set to make a couple of tweaks to his starting XI for the game against Benevento tomorrow night, a report claims.
According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as seen at the bottom of the page), Pioli is set to stick with a 4-2-3-1 formation that could function more as a 4-2-2-2. Donnarumma will be in goal with a back four of Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez protecting him.
Kessie and Bennacer will be the midfield double pivot as expected, with Saelemaekers and Rebic occupying the right and left wing respectively and Calhanoglu behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the playmaker in what has become an absolute must-win game for the Rossoneri in their quest for top four.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Bennacer, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic; Ibrahimovic.
Probable Benevento XI (4-3-2-1): Montipo; Depaoli, Glik, Caldirola, Barba; Hetemaj, Viola, Ionita; Insigne, Iago Falque; Lapadula.
