AC Milan vs Bologna Prediction and Betting Preview 18 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 5-1
AC Milan vs Bologna PredictionIt has not been the best of campaigns for AC Milan so far, but the club supporters will be pretty delighted with the resilience on show by their players. Despite enduring a poor start to the campaign, I Rossoneri still managed to force themselves into continental qualification reckoning.
Match status: 2019/20 Serie A - Matchweek 34
Kick-off:
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) (Milan)
Having garnered a staggering 53 points from 33 games, the Devil sit seventh on the standings and are clearly one of the better sides in the Serie A. Occupying the final Europa League slot, Milan cannot afford any slip-ups to avoid plummeting down the standings.

Their current spot on the log does not guarantee automatic qualification to the group stages of the Europa League, only offering tickets to the playoffs. However, given they are level on points with sixth-placed Napoli, Pioli’s men will fancy their chances of displacing the Parthenopeans soon enough.

For this, the Devil will need a win here, hoping results elsewhere go in their favor. In dire need of points, expect a spirited performance from AC Milan as they come up against a tricky opposition in Bologna this weekend.

AC Milan vs Bologna Team News

Milan have seemed a completely different side since the league restart, stringing a couple of impressive results to crawl slowly into the European places. Six points clear of 8th-placed Sassuolo, I Rossoneri will need to keep things up, to remain in contention for a Europa League ticket.

With relentless Sassuolo breathing heavy down their necks, I Rossoneri played host to Parma, seeking to poach all three points to keep distant from I Neroverdi. Headed into the game as huge favorites, Milan were always going to win.

Going behind in the first period courtesy of a Kurtic goal on the stroke of half-time, Milan returned from the dressing room, determined to overturn the deficit. Showing immense character, the Devil completed an amazing comeback to post a comprehensive 3-1 win on the board.

Looking to remain in the top-half of the standings, Bologna could not afford to lose when Napoli came visiting on the last matchday. With few tipping I Rossoblu to produce something outside of the ordinary, the hosts did not disappoint the minority.

In a fiercely-contested affair at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, we were treated to some amazing end-to-end football, with both sides seeking victory. Neither side up for defeat, they were forced to share the spoils after ninety minutes, as Bologna salvaged a point from the claws of their superior opponents.

For this fixture, AC Milan are slight favorites for the win. They are on a brilliant run of form and well on-course to booking a ticket to the Europa League. They have emerged victorious in three of their previous four league games, remaining unbeaten in each of their last eight games on the spin.

Noteworthily, the Devil are unbeaten in 23 of their preceding 26 games across all competitions. Since the league restart, they have posted huge margin wins against the likes of Juventus, Lazio and Roma – cementing their status as one of the better Italian sides post-lockdown.

In a tale of contrasting fortunes, Bologna are winless in eight of their previous ten matches, and have failed to register a single clean sheet over their last 14 away games.

Injured or Suspended Players

AC Milan: Mateo Musacchio, Leo Duarte, Ricardo Rodriguez and Alen Halilovic.

AC Milan vs Bologna Predictions

When it comes to h2h encounters between these two, AC Milan get the nod, with seven wins from their previous eight meeting against Bologna. Everything points in the direction of a Milan win. However, given how strong the Greyhounds were against Napoli a few days ago, they should not be treated with a wave of the hand.

Nonetheless, the hosts should enough have enough about themselves to safely deliver the three points. To play safe, a double chance backing Pioli’s men for the win would be my best pick.
