Bologna vs Milan in Serie A: Head to Head Statistics, LIVE Streaming Link, teams stats up, results, Date, Time, Watch Live
After the worst week of an otherwise successful season, Serie A leaders AC Milan visit mid-table Bologna on Saturday, needing to avoid a third straight defeat to keep ahead of the chasing pack.
Losses against local rivals Atalanta and Inter Milan in both league and cup have unsettled Stefano Pioli‘s side ahead of their trip to Emilia-Romagna to face the underwhelming Rossoblu.
Dominating the sports news headlines on Tuesday night, Milan’s exit from the Coppa Italia to their Nerazzurri counterparts was overshadowed by the dismissal of and subsequent racism row involving star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Scorer of a fine first goal at San Siro, the influential forward was booked twice and sent off, but not before butting heads – both physically and verbally – with former Manchester United colleague Romelu Lukaku. Ultimately, the Belgian forward had the last laugh, with Inter progressing to the semi-finals at the Rossoneri’s expense.
Defensively suspect Bologna finally kept a clean sheet in their last home match against Verona, but have failed to put together back-to-back blanks since April 2019.
The size of their task in doing so this weekend is highlighted by the fact that their visitors are looking to score in a 20th successive Serie A fixture for the first time in their long history.
