AC Milan vs Benfica
International- Champions Cup
Date: Sunday, 28 July 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Gillette Stadium (Foxborough).
AC Milan were edged out by a 1-0 scoreline in their previous game against German giants Bayern Munich. The Italian outfit initiated just as many attacks as their counterparts in that clash but disappointingly failed to find the back of the net in each of their three attempts that were on target.
Benfica, on the other hand, are on a two-match unbeaten streak, with their latest win coming dramatically against Fiorentina. The squad broke the deadlock early on but failed to hold on to their lead as their opponents equalized close to the half-hour mark.
Despite making twenty attempts at goal, and working the goalkeeper on eight instances, the winning goal came in the dying minutes of stoppage time in the second half.
A victory against Conte’s men will certainly not be a walk in the park either, so expect a tight and exciting ninety minutes when they lock horns with each other on Sunday.

AC Milan vs Benfica Prediction
Although AC Milan did go up against a much tougher competitor, in their last game, as opposed to Benfica, they were certainly not at their best by any means. The squad squandered every single opportunity that they got, and are without a single goal to their name.
Benfica have scored five goals in this competition so far. The side from Portugal have been far more clinical and dominant in the attacking third, and are the best bet to take the win.
However, you can count on Milan to be desperate to get off the mark with a goal of their own, and so the chances of a high scoring clash are looming large as well.
