Milan is welcoming Benevento to San Siro in round 34 in the Italian Serie A.

 

Not only Milan is out of the title race with 2 losses in a row, but Milan has also dropped out of the Champions League zone, and that would be a disastrous outcome for them. During this 2-game losing streak, Milan has conceded 5 goals while scoring only once. With 66 points, 60 scored goals, and 41 conceded goals, Milan is now in 5th place, but Juventus and Napoli ahead of them have the same number of points. In their last Serie A game against Lazio on the road, Milan was solid with 60% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 86% of the correct passes. Milan’s possession was in vain because they couldn’t use any of their chances, while their defense was sloppy and out of focus. Milan has conceded 3 goals in this game, and they ended up losing this match 3-0. Ibrahimovic has scored 15 goals, and he should finally be ready for this match, while Kessie added 10 goals. The only injured player for Milan is Maldini. Milan still needs to play against Atalanta and Juventus, but they simply must get to the Champions League spot, otherwise, their whole season will be a massive disappointment.

 

Benevento hasn’t won any of their last 5 games, and they are on the verge of relegation. Benevento is now in 18th place with 31 points, same as Torino and Cagliari ahead of them, but Benevento is not as good offensively as they are. Benevento has scored only 37 goals so far this season while conceding 66 goals, which is an average of 2 conceded goals per game. Benevento was hosting Udinese in their last Serie A game, and they were the better team, at least in part better. Benevento has had 57% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 11 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 83% of the correct passes. Offensively, it was a great game for Benevento, and they were able to score 2 goals, but Benevento’s defense wasn’t having a good day, and they conceded 4 goals. Benevento has lost this match 2-4. Lapadula has scored 6 goals for Benevento so far this season, while Viola and Caprari added 5 goals each. Moncini, Foulon, Tuia, Sau, and Letizia are all injured for Benevento. With 6 games left, Benevento still has time to get out of the relegation zone, and because they are still playing against their direct competitors Torino and Cagliari, it might be enough for Benevento to beat only them.

 

Milan and Benevento have played only 3 times against each other, and each team has won 1 game, while 1 game ended in a draw. Milan is the better team in this matchup, but both teams have a lot to gain or to lose in this game, and for that reason, I think we will see a good match. I will side with Milan because they are the better team here, but I think Benevento might score at least 1 goal.

 

 Pick: Over 3.5 goals
