Following a slow start to the previous campaign, AC Milan hit the ground running towards season-end, dazzling on-lookers with their fantastic show. Picking up a staggering 66 points from 38 games, the Rossoneri managed to make the cut for continental qualification.

Meanwhile, Bologna were pretty much the same side we had been seeing for the past few years. As a mid-table outfit, a 12th-place finish must have served the fans well. Taking on Milan this weekend, the visitors will need something off the charts to salvage a result.

AC Milan vs Bologna Team News

Last season was a success for Stefano Pioli and his boys. Despite beginning the campaign in mediocre fashion, AC Milan strived to secure a respectable league finish, squeezing through to the qualifying rounds of the Europa League.

Indeed, the return of legendary forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic during the January transfer window helped spark Milan’s resurgence. With the Swedish star in imperious form, the Red and Blacks never fell short of goals.

Following the league restart in May, Pioli’s men hit top-gear, firing on all cylinders. Scoring goals for fun, Milan easily finished the campaign as one of the better sides in the division. At a point, they were averaging about four goals per game – such was their dominance!

They famously defeated eventual champions Juventus in a thrilling 4-2 encounter on home turf. Pioli will hope the fans will continue to savor that huge victory for some time to come. Now, a new season has arrived, and AC Milan will be looking to put forth a strong title challenge.

Having enjoyed a stellar pre-season tour, the Rossoneri seem well-prepared for the upcoming season. From their three off-season fixtures, they recorded commanding victory in every one of them.

Last seen in action in a Europa League second-round qualifying match versus Shamrock Rovers, Milan recorded a 2-0 win to advance further in the competition. Returning to domestic league action this Monday, the Rossoneri will need another strong performance to safely see off Bologna.

Their style of play might not be the most attractive in the Serie A, but Bologna are definitely a strong side to keep an eye on this season. The Rossoblu always in sync on-the-pitch, they know how to grind out desirable results.

Impressively, Mihajlovic’s side have won the Scudetto seven times in their history. However, they have pretty much become a bottom-half outfit over the past decade. Their title-winning glory days are already long gone.

Bolstered by the arrivals of Lorenzo Di Silvestri and Luis Binks, Bologna will be gunning for a top-half finish this season. Expect a spirited performance from this side as they look to begin their campaign on a winning note.

Pioli had the chance to give his players some playing time when they took on Shamrock Rovers few days ago – Ibrahimovic and Calhanoglu getting on the scoresheet.
