Having emerged unscathed in a potential banana skin away to Shamrock Rovers during their Europa League qualifier on Thursday, AC Milan get their Serie A campaign underway on Monday.

Their opponents? Bologna, who finished mid-table last term and were 19 points adrift of Stefano Pioli's men once the 2019-20 season was concluded on August 2. Milan had five different goalscorers during their most recent meeting with Monday's visitors, cruising to a 5-1 victory yet it could have been worse.

Bologna haven't done much in terms of summer acquisitions, so questions will be asked about their ability to match Milan here. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

AC Milan vs Bologna Betting Tips

Goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Hakan Calhanoglu proved decisive as Milan were 2-0 winners in Dublin on Thursday evening, during their first ever meeting with Shamrock Rovers.

They were expert finishes as Milan pounced in-and-around the area to devastating effect, in a victory that would have boosted spirits ahead of their top-flight return. There was even a brief cameo for summer signing Sandro Tonali (£9m loan fee from Brescia, option to buy) and plenty of positives to take.

Milan are unbeaten in their last 17 matches (all competitions, including friendlies) and certainly mean business ahead of the new campaign. Bologna by contrast? After beating Milan's local rivals Inter on July 5, they won just one of their last eight top-flight matches to end the season.

They certainly need attackers like Musa Barrow, Riccardo Orsolini and the evergreen Rodrigo Palacio to sustain their productivity this term. Barrow (on-loan from Atalanta, option to buy) had nine league goals and four assists in 2019-20, so the Gambia international is one to watch.

AC Milan vs Bologna Correct Score Predictions

Simply put, Milan should emerge victorious here. Key word being should, because the Serie A can be unpredictable at the best of times – not least early season fixtures like these.

Bologna haven't been helped in their pre-season preparations by facing inferior opposition recently, while Milan are gradually getting back up to speed. Ultimately, I only see one winner here.
