AC Milan face Bologna tonight away from home as Stefano Pioli looks to get his side back on track following the midweek loss. The Rossoneri will miss out on Franck Kessie and Ante Rebic in addition to the other players that are ruled out such as Theo Hernandez, Barhim Diaz and Mike Maignan. Milan will need to protect Ciprian Tatarusanu from Arnautovic and Barrow as the duo are potent threats in front of goal. The Rossoneri always have a difficult time against Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side but always seem to prevail once we find the breakthrough. Samu Castillejo gets a surprise start over Alexis Saelemaekers who has been struggling in recent games while Rade Krunci gets the nod ahead of Daniel Maldini which is also a surprising choice given his display in the previous game.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu, Calabria, Kjaer (Romagnoli), Tomori, Ballo-Touré, Tonali, Bennacer, Castillejo, Krunic (Maldini), Leao, Ibrahimovic.
