THE TEAM NEWS

AC MILAN

  • AC Milan continued their unbeaten run in Serie A since the league’s restart and their 3-1 midweek win over Parma means they have not suffered defeat in any of their last seven matches in the league.
  • Parma nabbed the lead just before the break but a strong opening 15 minutes of the second half for Milan saw them turn the game on its head with Franck Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli finding the back of the net before Hakan Calhanoglu sealed the win with 13 minutes remaining.
  • Milan were without a handful of players for the Parma contest but they could be boosted by the return of at least one of Lucas Paqueta, Samu Castillejo and Leo Duarte with all three in with a chance of making their comeback from injury.

BOLOGNA

  • Bologna drew for the second game in succession but their second point in a row was a solid one as they held Napoli in their midweek clash, although it is now no win in their last three matches.
  • It was a poor start for Bologna who found themselves behind with just seven minutes on the clock but they managed to stay in the contest and got their reward with just 10 minutes remaining as Musa Barrow found the back of the net.
  • Bologna come into this contest with a relatively fit squad to choose from and they will hope Jerdy Schouten can push his way back into contention from a thigh problem, but Mattia Bani has been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

THE PREDICTION

AC Milan continued their strong run of form with another success in midweek and they are now unbeaten in seven league matches since the restart. They will be confident of another positive outcome as they host Bologna but the visitors will be on a high after a solid point against Napoli during the week. However, it is difficult to look past Milan at the minute and although both teams can find the back of the net, the hosts should prevail.
