After a dominant March, he brought the same consistency into April. On our official site, Rossoneri fans voted Bennacer as the player of the month, with the Algerian finishing ahead of Kalulu, Leão and Tonali. Bologna and Genoa in the league, the derby in the Coppa Italia: he always put in a big shift, displaying quality, strength and energy in the process. He was also unfortunate to have a great goal against Inter ruled out.
In the team’s home victory over Genoa, Ismaël reached the 100-game mark in the AC Milan shirt. He achieved this feat before the completion of his third season at the Club, which is proof of the important role he plays and all the good work he’s done so far.
Considering only AC Milan’s midfielders, only Tonali (four) made more interceptions than the Algerian (two) in Serie A in April. Furthermore, on average, no Diavolo midfielder created more chances per game than Bennacer (1.5) in the Italian top flight. In general, only Hernández (2.5) and Leão (2) were more successful in this regard. Furthermore, out of all the Rossoneri’s midfield players, no one did better than Bennacer in terms of average number of successful dribbles per match (2.5). When the whole team is considered, only Leão (4.5) and Hernández (2.75) completed more.
Against Fiorentina on Sunday, he’ll be hoping to be back available again. His contribution will vital in the team’s remaining matches, as it always has been. Well done, Isma!
