Official: Milan vs. Benevento starting XIs – Dalot, Romagnoli and Leao all come in

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli has made four changes to his starting XI for the game against Benevento compared to Monday’s defeat to Lazio.

After back-to-back losses against Sassuolo and Lazio, the game has become an absolute must-win for Milan as well as a chance to put some pressure on the likes of Juventus, Napoli and Atalanta who all play after.

Gianluigi Donnarumma will be in goal for the Rossoneri with a back four of Diogo Dalot, Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez. Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer will be the midfield double pivot as expected, with Alexis Saelemaekers and Rafael Leao occupying the right and left wing respectively and Hakan Calhanoglu behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the playmaker.

Official Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Dalot, Tomori, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Bennacer, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Leao; Ibrahimovic.

Bench: A. Donnarumma, Tătăruşanu; Calabria, Kjær, Gabbia, Kalulu; Krunić, Meïte, Tonali; Castillejo, Hauge, Díaz; Rebić.
