We should expect a very attacking line-up from Milan today. Both Zlatan and Rebic are expected to start from the outset. (Predicted XI: Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Kessie, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic; Ibrahimovic)
Milan average about 1.8 xG and 2.01 goals per 90 with these two on the pitch. Also (small sample size) Milan's offensive output with Saelemaekers has also been very encouraging. They average 2.31 goals per 90 and 2.23xG per 90 with him on the pitch.
Bologna have kept 0 clean sheets in their last 20 Serie A games so we can feel quite confident that the Rossoneri find the net at least once here
Bologna have conceded 1.7 goals per away game in their last 10 against Top half teams (Milan 7th)
As for Bologna, they'll be at full strength in terms of their attack and will be able to call upon the red hot Musa Barrow who's expected to start from the bench today.
Orsolini, Sansone, Soriano, and Santander all starting means Bologna will be close to their most dangerous
Bologna are one of the more productive road teams in the league, they score 1.61 goals per 90 and generate 1.65xG per 90 so we can expect them to have some chances to score here. Only 5 teams have scored more on the road (Roma, Napoli, Juve, Inter, and Atalanta)
When playing Top half teams, AC Milan have conceded on average 1.5 goals per game
The last time Pioli and Mihajlović went head to head (December) we were treated to a 3-2 with a total xG of 3.67
Providing both teams keep 11 men on the pitch we should get an entertaining match with chances at either end.
Both teams to score: Yes at 1.65 with Pinnacle - 2 units
