AC Milan vs Bologna
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 18 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
I Rossoneri are in possession of the final European spot at the moment. However, it affords an entry just into the qualifiers of the competition, while the position just above (6th spot in the table) opens doors directly to the Europa.
Luckily, they are level on points with the sixth-placed Napoli, and have five games remaining to climb over them.
The team has been in incredible form over the course of the last several weeks, and many attribute this resurgence to the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. To further help them, they are taking on the struggling Greyhounds.
Not only are Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men finding it hard to post points on the board, but they have an unimpressive h2h record against this opponent as well.
As such, expect an AC Milan win this weekend.
AC Milan vs Bologna: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Stefano Pioli’s men won the reverse fixture with a 2-3 scoreline on the road.
- They had also won seven of the previous eight clashes.
- It’s been four years since they have lost against this opponent.
- They had also recorded 27 of the previous 33 wins.
- At this venue, they had recorded 14 of the former 17 victories.
AC Milan vs Bologna: Prediction
I Rossoneri recorded a 3-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Parma. It was a confidence-boosting win for the team as they made a comeback in the second half, after the half-time scoreline had read 0-1.
In the meantime, the Greyhounds recorded a 1-1 draw at home against Napoli. Despite conceding an early goal, the hosts managed to slot in the equalizer in the 80th minute.
As of now, Pioli’s men have the upper hand. They are going after the sixth spot – which would let them enter the Europa Group Stage games. They had won three of their former four games, and are on an unbeaten run of eight fixtures.
Keep note that they were also unbeaten in 23 of their previous 26 games. In addition, understand that since the season was resumed, they had defeated Juventus, Lazio, Roma with two-goal margins or more.
Moreover, they had won seven of the previous eight h2h fixtures, and had recorded 27 of the former 33 33 such wins.
Going on, their counterparts were winless in eight of their preceding ten overall fixtures, and have not kept a single clean sheet in their last 14 road trips.
Taking into account these observations, expect a winning performance from AC Milan this weekend.
