Serie A Preview | Bologna vs. Milan: Zlatan starting against Miha?

by | Oct 22, 2021 22:52

Zlatan Ibrahimovic seems set for a return to the starting line-up when Bologna host Milan in Serie A on Saturday night.

The Rossoblu coach Sinisa Mihajlovic seems set to continue with Luis Binks in defence, as he impressed against Udinese.

Theate should be certain for a place in the side, while Kinsley is out due to rupture in the left fibula and will be out for four months after the operation.

Bologna are unbeaten in two games and sit eighth in Serie A with 12 points, 10 behind Milan, who are looking to extend their unbeaten run in the league.

Ibrahimovic is expected to start over Olivier Giroud in attack, while Stefano Pioli still has to cope without Theo Hernandez, Brahim Diaz, Ante Rebic and Franck Kessie.

Milan return to Serie A after their third consecutive defeat in the Champions League, but have won the last four games in the domestic competition and aim to apply further pressure on Napoli at the top.
