Players to Watch

Davide Calabria

Milan have struggled with leadership in recent weeks as a number of the senior players have been absent whilst the high performers have been out with injury. Calabria has been the one to drive us forward this season when Romagnoli is absent and he needs to keep the players on their toes tomorrow against a dangerous Mihajlovic side. If he can add some sting to the attack down that wing, that would support Krunic with his creativity load.

Marko Arnautovic

The Austrian striker is enjoying his life in Italy thus far as he has three goals in eight games and one assist so far. He has been the focal point of this attack and is clinical when he gets the ball in the box. He will definitely test Tatarusanu and be a nuisance for Tomori and Kjaer in the middle with his physicality.

Rafael Leao

The left winger has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders for this one as Diaz is out and Rebic won’t make it neither. The 22 year old has three goals in eight games in the league thus far as well as one assist. He will need to use his dribbling skills and pace cutting in to provide support for Giroud and hopefully bag a goal himself too.

Prediction: Bologna 1 - 3 Milan
