The champions are back in action this weekend on home soil as the San Siro plays hosts to Bologna this Saturday evening after one win and a draw in the opening two games for AC Milan just as the away side remain winless in the league.
It’s been a struggle for Bologna so far this campaign, and all they have to shout about after three games is the Coppa Italia win over Cosenza where Nicola Sansone scored in the second half in a game dominated by the Serie A side. The club registered 10 shots on target that day with 23 efforts in total for Bologna, as they saw 65% of the ball too.
Siniša Mihajlović's men have been incredibly ill-disciplined so far this season too, with them receiving a red card in both games as Riccardo Orsolini was sent off against Hellas Verona, just as Adama Soumaoro also got his marching orders against Lazio. Worse yet, they drew 1-1 with Verona, before losing to Lazio away from home.
As for the champions, they had a slight scare in their 4-2 win over Udinese on the opening weekend as they went 1-0 down inside two minutes. However, four goals later, Stefano Pioli’s men ended the game with all three points in a 4-2 win before drawing with Atalanta 1-1 where they once again looked promising at times in attack.
Milan are the clear favourites here, and in truth, it should be a relatively comfortable win for the Rossoneri. Bologna have scored in each game they’ve played so far, however, but this is unlikely to be enough to get all three points at the San Siro.
