Milan must react
It was as if all the bills for Milan had gone wrong.
Until the 18th round, they were leaders in Serie A.
And the hopes for the Scudetto to end a nightmarish 10-year period without it were high.
During this period, even 7 times Milan did not have access to the Champions League.
Suddenly, a home loss to Juventus followed. And from there, everything seemed to go backwards.
Milan suffered a total of 7 losses, of which 5 home.
Since the beginning of the new year, they are in 14th place in the home standings.
Most recently, it was their last home loss to Sassuolo 1-2. And quite deserved according to the xG data .
They also suffered a crushing loss to Lazio 0-3 in their last match.
It is clear that Milan is currently in crisis. And what are its causes is a complicated question.
But it is a fact that with these bad results lately they are already on the 5th position. And their place in the Champions League is in question.
Benevento is fighting for salvation
Two seasons ago, Benevento had the honor to play in Calcio. But they quickly dropped out as the last in the standings.
Shortly afterwards, however, Filippo Inzaghi made them Serie B champions.
They are now demonstrating more serious intentions to remain in Italy's elite.
Although in the red zone, they have an equal number of points and a worse goal difference than Torino and Cagliari. They will decide who will survive.
They have won only 2 points from their last 5 games. But there is an interesting fact about them. And it is that they play more successfully as guests.
Benevento even managed to beat Juventus outside at the end of March. But, of course, very lucky.
And in general in the new year they are 13th in the ranking for visiting teams.
The improvement is due to the increased realization compared to the created situations.
In defense, they continue to be the third weakest team this year.
The biggest problem, however, are the several injured key players in the squad, who are under serious question.
Forecast for Milan - Benevento
In their last meetings, the two teams have exchanged one victory as guests.
It is now clear that the victory for Milan will be one of the most played bets . And it has long been of no value.
I myself, in this crisis with the Rossoneri, had no intention of giving them any confidence.
But after getting acquainted with the situation with the visiting team, I thought about it.
I already guess that it is very likely that Benevento will play the role of the losing sparring partner.
Whose goal will be to raise the self-confidence of the champion from the distant past for the upcoming more important matches.
I will use -2.0 Asian Handicap then. And if Milan beats exactly 2 goals difference, our bet is returned. If you win with 3+ goals, you win.
