Bologna vs AC Milan
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, Bologna.
Despite losing two of the last four league outings, Milan still have a two-point cushion ahead of bitter city rivals Inter at the top of the Serie A standings. They suffered a tough 0-3 home defeat to Atalanta last weekend, a failure that was followed by the mid-week’s Coppa Italia exit after a 2-1 defeat to Inter. Rossoneri can now completely turn their ambitions to the league where they will be desperate to return to winning ways on Saturday when they travel to Stadio Renato Dall’Ara to take on Bologna in the first Serie A game of the day.
The hosts have played hot and cold so far in the season. They currently sit in the bottom half of the league ladder after winning no more than one of the last eleven league outings. The lack of efficiency in the final third has been the main source of problems for I Rossoblu who have notched only one goal in the last three league games.
Bologna vs AC Milan Head-to-head
Milan have been the dominant force in this match-up. They won 27, drew 8, and lost 6 of 41 encounters with I Rossoblu.
I Rossoneri picked up nine wins and a draw in the last ten meetings with Bologna. The run includes a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture played in this season at Stadio San Siro (2-0).
Milan scored at least two goals in seven of the last eight head to head matches against I Rossoblu.
Bologna vs AC Milan Prediction
The team led by Sinisa Mihajlovic have lost just one of the last five league games on the home patch. However, they leaked in way too many goals at home this season (17 goals in 9 matches). Milan have a attacking firepower capable of exploiting Bologna’s defensive holes. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the opener in the mentioned cup loss to Inter before getting sent off just before the hour-mark.
The Swedish striker will lead the line on Saturday and we can find the value in backing him to score anytime at the odds of 1.72. I Rossoneri have a fantastic away record with eight wins and a draw in nine league games on the road this season. They have also won nine of the last H2H clashes against I Rossoblu and the away win is the way to go at the 1.80 odds here.
