Tournament: Serie A
Bologna from the very start of the season doesn’t show qualitative football and only occasionally impresses its fans with bright matches.
At present Filippo Inzaghi’s team takes the 18th line with 11 points. Rossoblu need only two points which can be easily won back for one round to gain the 17th line.
In the last match Rossoblu were desperately fighting with Empoli but as a result they didn’t cope with the task. Andrea Poli has answered on the goal scored by Azzurri in the debut of the match and it seemed that the guests will be able to gain, at least, one point.
However, in the second half Bologna has lost its forces and the rival has punished them on the 80th minute. The team of Filippo Inzaghi wasn’t able to cope with this blow.
Milan can’t be proud of bright victories and outstanding results this season but in the Champions League zone the team of Gennaro Gattuso is doing well so far.Rossoneri have gained 26 points which allow them to take the fourth place, being ahead of Lazio (the 5th place) by one point. Last round Milan had got advantage in the match with Torino but as a result everything ended in a goalless draw.
Last week Milan has left the Europa League, having lost away match with to Olympiacos. After the 1st dry half Greeks have managed to score in 10 minutes twice in the second half, Milan has answered with Cristián Zapata’s goal but Greeks have increased their advantage at the end of the meeting with the penalty, having finally deprived Rossoneri of chances to get into the playoffs.
