Milan vs Bologna – Serie A: On the match that closes this Sunday of Serie A’s 16th round matches
The local side AC Milan and Bologna face off in Milan, at the San Siro, with the hosts having 21 points and sitting in 8th place while the visitors have the same 21 points and sitting in 9th place of the league table.
This will be the first meeting between the two sides this season.
The Milanese team comes into this match making a very poor season regarding what was expected from them, seeing the front pack, in the Italian Serie A,
almost 20 points away and even seeing the European spots at an already considerable distance, if we take into account they have a 6-points disadvantage to 6th place and a 12-points disadvantage to 5th place.
The team is on a streak of negative results, that got worse with the arrival of their new manager Gattuso. The team only has 1 win on their last matches, being winless for 3 consecutive matches.
As for the visiting side, they come into this match on a positive moment of form, getting 3 consecutive unbeaten matches, winning two of them, and sitting at a very relaxed position on the league table,
with a considerable advantage over the antepenultimate place, SPAL, who has 10 points.
The team has also presented an interesting consistency on their away matches, only losing 3 out of 8 matches played (against strong opponents such as Roma, Atalanta or Fiorentina), and never losing by more than the minimal margin
Milan vs Bologna– Betting Tip and Prediction:
AC Milan is coming off a terrible streak of results and, in my opinion, things will only get worse after the manager that the board selected,
since Gattuso has been terrible in practically every club he managed; on this short period he has as a manager,
he already accomplished two remarkable achievements: “giving” the first points to Benevento on the Serie A (who was coming off 14 consecutive losses with only 6 goals scored) and also getting the team’s first loss in the Europa League’s group stage.
With that said, we can only expect the worst from this team, in my opinion.
Given the good opponent they will find in this match, a Bologna who is tough to beat, I believe that the visitors will be able to make life hard for the hosts and I also believe we will have a low-scoring affair.
