Match Preview

The road to Europe has been a rocky one for AC Milan after a run of one win in seven Serie A (SA) games (W1, D2, L4). Nonetheless, the top four is just three points away and Bologna are the visitors, a team with just win in the last 18 games against the hosts (D5, L12).
The decline in Milan’s form has coincided with poor defensive displays. They’ve conceded more than 30% (ten) of their goals against (33) in the last seven SA matches, with just one clean sheet. In contrast, their 27 prior league games saw nine shutouts!
Still, Milan’s last four home SA wins have all been achieved ‘to nil’ and they have picked up more than 60% of their season points (56) at home (34), where they’ve only been down twice at half-time.
Bologna are best the form side in SA over eight games (W6, D1, L1). This period saw them score more than 45% (17) of their SA goals (37), while conceding only just over 16% (eight) of their season tally (48).
The visitors’ SA away record has earned them just over 30% (12) of their total points (37), but 75% of those were earned this calendar year (W2, D2, L3) with just one blank sheet.
Players to watch: Krzysztof Piątek will look to add to his tally of just three SA home goals for Milan in eight scored since his move from Genoa.
Riccardo Orsolini (BOL) has scored four of his six SA goals in his last seven matches.
Stat attack: Bologna have failed to score before half-time in eight of the last ten SA H2Hs, six of which finished goalless at the break.
Six of Milan’s home SA games have seen a 0-0 half-time score.
Only Cagliari (11) have conceded more goals in the first quarter of SA matches than Bologna (ten) this season.
