AC Milan vs Bologna Prediction & Betting tips
The Italian first division professionals are really not to be envied at the moment. Although the month of July only celebrated the mountain festival on Wednesday, all teams already have five competitive games in their bones. In a three-day cycle, the actors have to call up top performances and overcome their own physical limits. Two teams, who have not yet noticed any major loss of substance, will face off in a direct duel on Saturday evening.
Between AC Milan and Bologna, the odds of the best bookmakers clearly swing towards the home side, who not only scored ten points from the recent four games, but also conceded their last loss in March. The Pioli team is still the team of the hour in Italy and is well on the way to fixing the right to start for the Europa League.
After the Rossoneri defeated Parma 3-1 at home despite deficit on Wednesday, the next uncomfortable opponent is now waiting for Ibrahimovic and colleagues. The greyhounds from the Emilian capital only recovered two bankruptcies in seven attempts after the forced break and recently scored points against Inter Milan and Naples. Is the next supposed favorite against the Mihaijlovic protégés feathers?
In our eyes, it is a better choice between AC Milan and Bologna to make a prediction that the guests will score points, especially since they are one of the better away teams in Serie A and, given the table situation, can play freely. In addition, the double chance X / 2 promises an attractive value in contrast to the home win.
At AC Milan, the mood is divided these days and weeks. On the one hand, those responsible for coach Pioli are happy that the Rossoneri is getting better and better after initial difficulties and has remained unbeaten in all seven games after the restart. On the other hand, the Lombards are annoyed that the catch-up was started too late and that the multiple champion will miss the entry into the Champions League for the seventh time in a row.
At least everything currently indicates that the red-blacks can start again in the Europa League. Since Naples, currently sixth, has already secured its ticket for the European Cup by winning Coppa, seventh place is enough in Serie A, which Milano currently holds with a six-point advantage over Sassuolo.
During the week, “Il Diavolo” celebrated its fifth win in the seventh game after the break. The offensive in particular was once again convincing. In the 3-1 win over Parma, the Lombards scored at least twice in a row for the seventh time in a row. In total, there were almost three goals per game after the re-start, although goalkeeper Donnarumma had to reach five times in the past 270 minutes.
In addition, AC Milan and Bologna should take into account for the forecast that Coach Pioli has been building on the same team for a few weeks with a few exceptions. What ends up in a well-rehearsed formation can, due to the high load mentioned, also tip quickly in a more negative direction. Already against Parma, the fashion city benefited from the opponent’s chances for opportunities. A loss of points would have been possible. We would describe the starting point similarly at the weekend.
Furthermore, it should be noted that the huge motivation may no longer be able to be applied. If it was regularly against the top teams of Serie A (Juventus, Lazio, Naples), a certain feeling of satiety could now spread. In addition, the red-blacks achieved only seven wins over the season in 16 home games. At least there were no new injuries compared to Wednesday.
Calmness has returned to the Bologna Football Club. Not only Sinisa Mihaijlovic, who is suffering from cancer, is on the mend, the seven-time Italian champion (most recently in 1964) has developed positively in recent weeks and months. At the moment, the red-blues are in tenth place and can tackle the remaining matches completely free of pressure.
Some top teams had to seamlessly acknowledge that the Rossoblu is one of the more uncomfortable opponents in the Italian upper house. On Wednesday, for example, the greyhounds fought a 1-1 draw at home against Naples. At the beginning of July the team from Emilia was even 2-1 successful at Inter Milan. The “gray mouse” also scored three times in Roma, at home against Atalanta Bergamo or in Naples.
Just because of these impressive results against the well-known Serie A clubs, we really like the odds on double chance X / 2 between AC Milan and Bologna. It is also positive that “I Veltri” is one of the better away teams in the league. The tenth man has already won seven guest appearances. In addition, Bologna scored more goals abroad (26) than the upcoming opponent in their own stadium (22).
In this respect, it is definitely an option to place bets on the Mihaijlovic team, especially since the Serbian coach has a Milanese past as both a coach and a player. As a trainer, the ex-professional was even under contract for both Lombard heavyweights. The 51-year-old can certainly motivate his intact and well-functioning team accordingly. With the exception of the injured Bani and Schouten, all players are ready for action.
