At AC Milan the tree is burning! The Rossoneri are currently gambling away all the goals of the season: First they flew against Lazio from Coppa Italia last week, missing their place in the finals of the competition, and the following weekend the series A defeat went down 2-0 away at Turin FC. Only five counters took the 18-time champions on the last seven matchdays. An extremely meager yield, which has led to even the qualification for the Europa League is in danger. So thanks to the win last Sunday, Turin FC missed Milan, who are only seventh. A negative development that could now cost Gennaro Gattuso the coaching job. So different names like Mark van Bommel already haunt as a successor by the local press.
While the crisis has now fully arrived in Milan, Bologna has probably saved itself in recent weeks from relegation. Three wins and a draw are a proud achievement and the relegation zone is now eight points away. However, the opposition with teams like Chievo or Empoli was comparatively easy. The host’s defense has been very shaky recently and Alessio Romagnoli will also miss an important pillar of the Milan defensive. On the other hand, the offensive of Bologna has recently presented much improved and not committed this year in two out of 16 competitive games. The AC Milan vs. Bologna forecast is associated with five units as an insert.
AC Milan LogoA few weeks ago, the situation at Milan was still comfortable. The team consistently occupied a place in the Champions League and stood in the semi-finals of the Cup. However, as described, she has since said goodbye to this competition and since the defeat in the derby against Inter middle March, there was only a threesome against Lazio Rome, but also currently suffering from shape fluctuations. If it still has something to do with the Champions League or at least Europa League, now must be won again.
In the attack, the Rossoneri build especially on the arts of Poland Krzysztof Piątek, who, after all, together with the Colombian Duvan Zapata of Atalanta Bergamo takes second place in the scoring. However, he could not last up on his achievements from the previous season and has been waiting for four games for the next goal. Nevertheless, he still has an impressive record of eight goals in 14 league appearances for Milan, where he moved from CFC Genoa last winter to fill the gap left by Gonzalo Higuain’s departure for Chelsea FC.
Alessio Romagnoli is not able to play in the defense, as he got a red card at the 0-2 in Turin last weekend. For the defensive network at Milan, his absence is a significant weakening, because he has been in AC for four seasons in the defense. Nevertheless, the squad of Milan is of course still much better compared to the upcoming opponents and the upcoming game as I said a “must-win” for the home side, given the table development and all form problems in spite of defiance. At AC Milan against Bologna are thus the odds for a home win of interest, which turn out comparatively high for the actually clear pairing, because the momentum lies with the guests.
The seven-time title holder, most recently in 1964, graduated after the resurgence of his fifth season in Serie A. Meanwhile, it looks as if the Rossoblu also concretize the planning for the sixth straight game in the upper house of Italian football. Thanks to ten points from their last four league games, Bologna FC is in 14th place, bringing eight points between them and the relegation zone. Should it stay that way, the club’s seasonal goal, namely the relegation, would have been achieved once more. Much higher are the claims also not settled because it has been enough since the return to Serie A always only to a place in the lower midfield. Thus, Bologna finished 15th in the last three years and with the 14th rank in the promotion season, the best ranking of the last few years would have been called.
I Veltri experienced its upswing not only in the last weeks, but also before. The beginning of the positive trend was the change of coach at the end of January, where Siniša Mihajlović took over the job of Filippo Inzaghi. It was curious that he did this before, namely 2015, when he inherited Inzaghi from the next opponent in the coaching office. In any case, the Serb, who was famous as a player for his free-kick skills and still holds the record for most goals in this area in Serie A, has clearly stabilized the Red-Blue. So he comes in the 13 league games in which he now bears the sporting responsibility at Bologna, on seven wins, two draws and only four defeats.
