Bologna vs AC Milan: top free betting tips
Bologna lock horns with AC Milan in the first round of Serie A 2023/24 at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara on Monday, 21 August. Rossoneri has got the back of consecutive wins in Friendlies while the Red and Blues enter this game with a Copa Italia victory against Cesena.
Match result prediction: AC Milan to win
AC Milan has gone undefeated in the last five H2Hs against Bologna while confirming three victories. Rossoneri have also been admirable in Serie A as they have registered four victories in the last five league outings. On the other hand, Bologna has also been through an undefeated sequence at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara, but they ended the last four with equal scores. Given the H2H record and current strength of AC Milan, we predict the Red and Blues as favourites to take three points in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: yes
All of the previous four H2Hs of these two teams at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara have concluded with both teams on the scoring end. Bologna has found the back of the net in four of the last five league outings. But their defence has not been much resilient and claimed just one clean sheet in that course. AC Milan scored in four games during the aforestated period, conceding goals in three matches. Therefore, we can expect the teams to share a BTTS outcome in this encounter.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to AC Milan
AC Milan has rattled the net twice or more in three of the previous five H2H meetings against Bologna, scoring nine in total in that course. On the other hand, Bologna managed to score more than once in only one game in that course. The Red and Blues have also conceded two goals in each of the previous two matches in Serie A. Meanwhile, the Red and Blues conceded only one goal in two of the recent three league outings while scoring nine goals in that duration. Considering these facts, we predict a 1-2 margin for AC Milan in this fixture.
