Bologna and Milan are playing against each other in a postponed match of round 16 of Serie A. The Italian Federation made a gesture towards Milan due to the participation of the team in Europa League during the week, which eventually ended with failure for the players of Gennaro Gattuso. The primary goal of Milan remains finishing in Top 4, which means returning in the Champions League.
Bologna are in terrible form and don’t have a win in the previous eight games in Serie A. The team won just 11 points after 15 games, which is their worst start in the league since season 2008/09. Despite the expectations of good performance with the appointment of Filippo Inzaghi, Bologna have just two wins – against Udinese and Roma who are sixth in the standings.
Gennaro Gattuso still is not achieving the optimal balance in his team, but indeed, Milan are on the right track. The Red and Blacks again can’t fight against the leaders of the league – Juventus and Napoli but are fully competitive of the rest of the leading teams in Serie A. In the start of the season Milan had severe problems in defence and had just two clean sheets. In the middle Tiémoué Bakayoko is performing better and better and is near the form that he showed in Monaco’s champion season.
Milan have to forget the dropping out from Europa League and to try to increase their lead over Lazio. We expect The Red and Blacks to be the more active team and to control the events on the pitch. Bologna are in no their best form and don’t perform well in attack, but need points. We expect a defensive approach of Pippo Inzaghi’s team and a small number of goals in the match. I will back Under 2.5 Goals, with Milan 1-0 Correct Score.
