Bologna vs AC Milan
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 29 April 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara (Bologna).
AC Milan’s European hopes took a major hit as they were embarrassed by Benevento last weekend. The Rossoneri are the first team to allow Le Streghe to pick up an away win, and now Gennaro Gattuso will have a lot of work to do if they want to earn a Europa League spot.
They come into this game having failed to win their last six league games and failed to make it past Arsenal in the Europa League as they were beaten both home and away. Their only chance of silverware – and a potential backdoor into the Europa League – could be by beating Juventus in the Coppa Italia, but they really don’t want to place all their faith in that, either.
Milan aren’t out of the running for a Europa League spot, although a Champions League finish is well out of reach. Meanwhile Bologna are in 12th spot and really have no chance of making it into the top half of the table. At the same time, they’re in no danger of relegation, either, so they’re pretty much stuck where they are. That being said, they surely will want to try to finish the season on as good a note as possible. Can they take advantage of a Milan side devoid of confidence after their shock loss to Benevento?
Bologna vs Milan: Head-to-head statistics
- There have been under 2.5 goals scored in Bologna’s last 9 games
- Milan have failed to win their last 6 matches
- There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 8 of AC Milan’s last 10 games
Bologna vs Milan: Prediction
Being the first team to lose at home to Benevento is a new low for Milan, and the fact that they were unable to score against the worst-performing side is a major concern as they spent big to acquire Nikola Kalinic and Andre Silva. Milan have scored more than one goal in just one of their last 11 games. Both teams aren’t the highest scoring lately so expect less goals here, and as neither side have been impressive as of late, this could ultimately result in a draw.
Bologna vs Milan: Betting tips
- Under 2.5 goals at 1.75
- DRAW at 3.70.
