Bologna is welcoming Milan to Renato Dall’Ara in round 20 in the Italian Serie A.
Bologna is struggling massively, on both ends, and they have won only 1 of their last 10 games. At least for now, Bologna is outside the relegation zone, in 13th place with 20 points, 24 scored goals, and 33 conceded goals. In their last Serie A game, Bologna was playing against Juventus on the road, and they have had 48% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. It wasn’t a bad game for Bologna, but their lack of offense has come to light in this game, and Bologna has lost this match 2-0. Roberto Soriano is Bologna’s best player with 6 goals and 4 assists, while Orsolini and Barrow added 3 goals each. Santander, Mbaye, Medel, and Ravaglia are all injured, and they will miss this game. Bologna is not a bad team, on the contrary. Bologna has some good players, and they can play good soccer, but they are struggling with consistency and they don’t have the depth this season. I think Bologna will stay outside the relegation zone, but they won’t be anywhere near the Europa League spot.
Milan has now lost 2 games in a row during which they scored 5 goals while conceding only 1 goal, but luckily for Milan, they are still at the top of the Serie A table. Milan has 43 points, 39 scored goals, and 22 conceded goals, and they are 2 points ahead of Inter. Milan was playing against Inter in Coppa Italia earlier this week, and after leading 0-1 for a majority of the game, Milan has conceded 2 goals, and they ended up losing this match 2-1. In their last Serie A game, Milan was hosting Atalanta, and they have had 50% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a decent 84% of the correct passes. Milan’s defense was a disaster in this match, while their offense wasn’t working out. Milan has lost this game 0-3. Gabbia is the only injured player for Milan at the moment, while Calhanoglu, Diaz, and Kjaer are still questionable for this match. Ibrahimovic is the leading goalscorer for Milan with 12 goals, while Kessie added 6 goals. Calhanoglu has 6 assists. Milan’s schedule is on the lighter side over the next few weeks, and I think Milan will stay in the first place before the Europa League starts.
Bologna hasn’t won any of their last 4 games against Milan. The trends are on Milan’s side in this matchup, and Milan is the better team here. I know that Milan is on a 2-game losing streak, but Bologna is in worse form, and they are the weaker team here. I’m taking Milan on the road to get back on the winning track.
