AC Milan travel to Bologna to attempt to bounce back after two consecutive losses. In the latest Serie A battle, who are the main players and key battles to watch out for? Below we take a look at the most likely head to heads that will decide the game in the Renato Dall’ara this Saturday afternoon.

H2H Key Areas

Wide Forward vs Full Back

Musa Barrow vs Davide Calabria

Pace and skill sum up this attacking player, with 3 goals and 4 assists in 19 league games, he has been very dangerous. Calabria will be tasked to keep him in first gear, and from causing any problems from wide and cutting inside to more central areas. Calabria will need to be at his best tonight.

Striker vs Goalkeeper

Rodrigo Palacio vs Gianluigi Donnarumma

1 goal and 2 assists for the veteran Serie A forward, is a good indicator of Bologna’s position in the standings. Palacio might have few goals to his name, but, will be aiming to slip away from the Milan defense and score any type of goal.

Left Forward vs Right Back

Ante Rebic vs De Silvestri

Rebic has made a very slow return back to action after his last injury scare, with Milan missing his power and aggression going forward, this game will be a chance for him to find goals and assists. De Silvestri is an experienced player at 32, but with Rebic at full throttle, the Italian shouldn’t be able to keep up.

H2H Prediction

Barrow Winner

Donnarumma Winner

Rebic Winner
