Bologna vs Milan 10/23/21 Serie A Football picks, odds and predictions »Sports Chat Place
Bologna welcomes Milan to Renato Dall’Ara in the ninth round of the Italian Serie A. Bologna has been hot and cold so far this season, but overall they’ve done a great job so far. Milan I still unbeaten in Serie A, they are in second place, but they are struggling in the Champions League.
Like I said, Bologna have been strong overall so far this season, but their defense is really sloppy with 15 goals conceded. The good news for Bologna is that they haven’t lost any of their last 2 games and scored 4 goals in that streak. In their last game against Udinese on the road, they were the better team with 59% possession, 11 shots on goal, 8 corners, 1 big opportunity created and 88% correct passes. Bologna led 0-1, but their defense was once again sloppy and the final score was 1-1. Bologna have conceded a lot of yellow cards in this game, but surprisingly none of their players are suspended. Barrow is Bologna’s top scorer with 3 goals and 3 assists, while Arnautovic also added 3 goals. Bologna are a good team, they have good players, but I still don’t think they are good enough to play in the Europa League.
Milan may be struggling in the Champions League, but they have been remarkable in Serie A so far this season. in their Champions League game against Porto on the road earlier this week, Milan had 47% of all possessions, 1 shot on goal, 1 corner kick and 77% of correct passes. It wasn’t a good game for Milan, and honestly, they didn’t deserve the win. Milan lost this game 1-0. In Serie A, Milan scored 18 fantastic goals, while their defense was also exceptional with 7 goals conceded. With 22 points, Milan are in 2sd up, and they’ll be in the title race until the very end. Milan have been hit by injuries and covid, and they will miss great players like Hernandez, Rebic and Florenzi, but they still have young guns that need to prove themselves. Giroud, Diaz and Leao have each scored 3 goals for Milan so far, while Hernandez has added 3 assists. Yes, Milan would have loved to do better in the Champions League, but I think they should focus on Serie A, and I think they will eventually.
We’re getting a nice sum of money for Milan on the silver line, and I’ll take it. Yes, Milan have a ton of injuries, but they’re still a good team and Bologna’s defense is sloppy. I side with the undefeated team in this game.
