CorSport: Pioli to rely on Bennacer-Tonali pairing at the Maradona

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is expected to deploy the midfield pairing of Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer against Napoli tonight, a report claims.

Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes today that the Bennacer-Tonali midfield pairing will be back together tonight, and they will both be crucial in the attempts to get a positive result at the Maradona.

The last time the two were used together was during the 3-1 defeat against Udinese just before the international break, and the feeling is that Bennacer was struggling a bit in terms of his condition because he was coming back from a muscle problem.

The paper writes that Tonali is the more physical presence of the two while Bennacer is more the mind of the duo, and each will need to perform their tasks near perfectly given that level of opponent that they will face tonight, with help expected to come from Rade Krunic too.
