MN: Pioli clings to the trusted members of his squad in must-win game vs. Benevento

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have found themselves facing an absolute must-win game against Benevento, and key players must stand up and be counted.

As MilanNews writes, the Rossoneri must use the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic as a launching pad but Stefano Pioli will count on the other pillars of his team, the ones who are the leaders within the group and helped contribute to an amazing 2020.

We are waiting to understand if Simon Kjaer will play or if he will enjoy a ‘rest’ round but we already know that Pioli will field captain Alessio Romagnoli again. The captain will be back on the pitch at the moment of greatest difficulty for the team, an important sign as well as a certificate of esteem and trust in a player who has always put Milan first.

Theo Hernandez, Bennacer and Kessie will all need to be in top form and in attack Saelemaekers and Calhanoglu will be trusted and must contribute. It seems Rafael Leao will be on the left wing, and he has a chance to answer his critics.
