Milan go into this match against Bologna needing a win to stay in the hunt for European places, but with Atalanta’s victory over Lazio yesterday, the point might be moot. With four games to go, Atalanta is not only six points ahead of Milan, they are only one point back of third placed Inter Milan, meaning that there is more of a chance that Atalanta nick third place from Milan’s city rivals rather than Milan climbing ahead of the Bergamo club. It goes without saying that this match is a must win at this point, but as Milan are sitting in seventh place right now, a point behind Torino and three points behind even fifth placed AS Roma, a win would at least get Milan in the running for a second straight season of
Probable lineup vs. Bologna (4-3-3):— Milan Eye (@MilanEye) May 5, 2019
Donnarumma; Abate, Musacchio, Zapata, Rodríguez; Kessie, Biglia, Paquetà; Suso, Piatek, Çalhanoglu [Sky]
Gattuso will reportedly stick with a fairly familiar lineup against Bologan, with Iganzio Abate subbing in at right back for the pair of injured fullbacks Davide Calabria and Andrea Conti. The rest of the lineup looks pretty expected, even with Tiémoué Bakayoko left out as punishment for being late to training and causing Gattuso to make the team stay at Milanello this past week.
Bologna are almost clear of the relegation zone in 15th place on 37 points. While Empoli could theoretically still overtake them, Bologna has to be liking their chances of another year of Serie A survival.
