The closing challenge of the first week of the Italian Serie A League will be on Monday, 21 September, at 19:45, with Milan and Bologna.
Milan, which will open the new season in the Italian Serie A League with the Bologna match, successfully made it through the tough pandemic last season and bought the UEFA Europa League ticket. Especially with the arrival of Pioli, the rising host had not lost matches in the last 12 league exams. Extending the contract with İbrahimovic, he strengthened his staff with young names such as Milan, Tonali, Saelemaekers, Brahim Díaz and Pierre Kalulu. The host, who went to Shamrock in the UEFA Europa League 2nd Preliminary Round last week, won 2-0 with the goals of İbrahimovic and Hakan Çalhanoğlu. The two names that made their mark on the last season started the new season well. On the Milan front, Musacchio, Romagnoli and Rafael Leao are injured.
The guest team Bolonga, on the other hand, had a significant decline after the pandemic last season, unlike its rival, and finished the league in 12th place. Failing to reach the European goal, Bologna was able to win only 2 wins out of 10 matches after the pandemic. Continuing under the direction of Sinisa Mihajlovic, the guest team added only Lorenzo De Silvestri, Luis Binks and Sebastian Breza to its staff during the transfer period. Pattarello, Nicola Ghini, Ladislav Krejci and Destro left the team. While filling the place of those who went to Bolonga, he had difficulty in strengthening his staff. In the Bologna team, Medel is suspended.
Milan will start with a victory in the Italian Serie A League and will continue its rise unabated last season.
