Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Renato Dall’Ara will host Saturday’s football game between Bologna and Milan. The Rossoblu aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Juventus, but they face yet another uphill task against the Rossoneri. Even though Sinisa Mihajlovic’s troops defeated Verona in their last home game, we are not tempted to put our money on the relegation-threatened team. The likes of Ravaglia, Medel, and Santander are all out of contention with injuries.
Stefano Pioli’s troops, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-0 loss to Atalanta, with Hakan Calhanoglu being sorely missed. The Turkey international remains in the recovery room, with Gabbia and Bennacer missing the match with injuries as well. Stefano Pioli has a number of high-profile footballers to choose from, and we predict that the league leaders are going to return to winning ways in the Italian top flight on Saturday. You should bear in mind that Milan defeated Sampdoria in each of their previous four meetings in the Italian elite division.
Highlighted Player (Stefano Denswil):
Stefano Denswil is a product of Ajax football academy. The Dutch centre-back, who was born in Zaandam on May 7, 1993, scored one goal in 22 appearances in the Eredivisie for Ajax before joining Club Brugge in 2015. Denswil quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Club Brugge and it has to be noted that he scored his first goal for the Blauw-Zwart in December 2015 in a 4-1 loss to Anderlecht.
Speaking of his international career, Stefano Denswil has seven caps with Netherlands U21 team, but, outside of football, the Club Brugge practices kickboxing. Stefano Denswil’s preferred foot is left, but he is not used as a left-back. His main position is centre-back and his contract with Club Brugge should expire in June, 2020.
Denswil has three Eredivisie titles with Ajax and he won his second Belgian Pro League trophy with Club Brugge in the 2017/2018 season. Denswil wears No. 24 jersey at the Jan Breydel Stadium outfit.
Highlighted Team (Milan):
AC Milan are regarded as one of the biggest club in Italy. The Rossoneri compete in the Italian Serie A and they have won 18 domestic trophies. Speaking of the club’s European success, Milan have clinched seven Champions League (European Cup) trophies.
Milan were on the verge of beating Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final, but the Premier League outfit came from three goals behind and eventually won the prestigious trophy on penalties. The Rossoneri play their home games at Stadio San Siro (80,018), the stadium that was opened in 1926. It is well known that Milan’s bitterest rivals are Inter and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Madonnina.
Milan were founded in 1899 by a lace-maker from England named Herbert Kilpin and a businessman Alfred Edwards. Milan’s home kits are red and black and that is why the team’s nickname is Rossoneri (The Red and Blacks).
The likes of Alessandro Costacurta, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Roberto Donadoni, Dejan Savicevic, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Andrea Pirlo are the most famous footballers who have represented the San Siro outfit.
