In their two previous meetings, the Rossoneri are yet to beat Le Streghe.
“We are up against a Benevento side that plays good football, is getting important results and is well-trained," said Pioli in his press conference.
“Therefore, we need the right approach and to play in the Milan style. A year ago, we were starting to build, but the foundations are now there and we must add the motivation of wanting to improve game by game, facing every match with the intention of winning.
“Let's not forget, 2020 was positive because everyone stepped up to reach their full potential. We start this year with great enthusiasm, confidence and trust in our own abilities. Where we have to improve is those situations where we are not at 100 per cent."
