Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Thanks to Theo Hernandez’s late goal Milan recorded a very important 3-2 win over Lazio, with the team moving one step closer to winning their first Scudetto since 2011. The Rossoneri look unstoppable in the 2020/21 season, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Benevento. Even though Hernandez (suspension), Gabbia (injury), Bennacer (injury), and Ibrahimovic (injury) are all out of contention for Stefano Pioli’s team, away win should be considered as the Rossoneri are high on spirits ahead of the first game of the year.
Benevento aim to build on back-to-back wins over Genoa (2-0) and Udinese (2-0), but Milan are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Since Iago Falque, Caldirola, Maggio, and Volta are all sidelined through injuries for Gli Stregoni, we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders.
