Bet Guide to Italian Serie A: BOLOGNA-MILAN


Reaction score
Bologna-Milan will play Saturday, October 23rd at 8,30PM CET Time

After the defeat against Porto, which put AC Milan almost out of the Champions League, Stefano Pioli has every interest in bringing his team's attention back to the championship, where the Rossoneri travel fast behind leaders Napoli.
Winning in Bologna would allow Milan to get first place, waiting for Napoli to face Mourinho's Roma on Sunday.
Bologna is a very discontinuous team: they had sensational defeats (6 goals conceded by Inter and 4 by Empoli) but drew with Atalanta and won 3-0 with Lazio. Mihajlovic's home side have won 3 of their last 4 games, but Milan have not lost in Bologna since 2002.

BOLOGNA: The most likely formation is a 3-4-2-1 with Medel in the center of the defense and Soriano and Barrow behind Arnautovic, Dominguez in doubt and Schouten certainly out for injury.
MILAN: Many injured players and several problems to solve.
Out Kessié and Rebic, coach Pioli will decide at the last moment who to deploy in attack between Giroud and Ibrahimovic with Zlatan who has completely recovered and was tried among the owners in the last training session, in defense space for Kjaer and in midfield it will be Bennacer who will play alongside Tonali.

BOLOGNA: Schouten, Bonifazi, Kingsley
MILAN: Maignan, Plizzari, Florenzi, Messias, Hernandez, Diaz, Rebic, Kessiè, Pellegri.

BOLOGNA (3-4-2-1): Skorupski; Sumaoro, Binks, Theate; De Silvestri, Medel, Svanberg, Hickey; Soriano, Barrow; Arnautovic. Man.: Mihajlovic
MILAN (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Ballo-Tourè; Bennacer, Tonali; Castillejo, Krunic, Leao; Ibrahimovic. Man.: Pioli

Difficult game to predict. Milan have more quality, but many injuries and we need to see how this team will play together.
Bologna at home is a rather solid formation.
Milan is favorite, but maybe we can risk betting on draw, maybe 1-1 (quoted 6:1)
Barrow may be a good choice for first scorer, but a good pick may also be Leao for Milan (6,50:1).
