Our football match prediction:
Milan were on the verge of beating rock-bottom Benevento in their last league fixture, but the newcomers eventually scored the equalizer in the dying minutes of the match. The Rossoneri dropped to eighth place in the Serie A standings and, as things stand now, they are unlikely to win their first Scudetto since 2011. Vincenzo Montella’s men aim to stay in the race for a place in the Champions League and, no doubt, they are determined to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Italian top flight. Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Hellas Verona and Sampdoria, Bologna played out a 1-1 draw with Cagliari at the weekend and they are level on points with Milan ahead of Sunday’s football game. Anyhow, this has to go down as a must-win game for the Rossoneri and we predict the hosts will pick up all three points from the match. You should bear in mind, though, that Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli misses the match through suspension.
