Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: AC Milan v. Bologna Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

AC Milan are knocking on the door of a potential 2020-21 UEFA Europa League berth, as they're tied with Napoli – who are in sixth place, the last spot for that tournament – with only five games left on the schedule. This seems to be a pivotal game for the Rossoneri, though they arrive into this fixture in good form, as they're undefeated in their last seven matches, with five wins and two draws in that stretch. No team wants to face them right now, and Bologna will have to work extremely hard to get points from this fixture. The visitors don't have much to play for, and their recent form shouldn't inspire a lot of confidence, either. Bologna are coming off back-to-back draws, are winless in their last three matches and have won just once in their last five Serie A contests. By all accounts, Milan are expected to steamroll past their opponents in this one.

Bologna: Lukasz Skorupski; Stefano Denswil, Mitchell Dijks, Danilo, Takehiro Tomiyasu; Gary Medel, Andrea Poli, Riccardo Orsolini, Roberto Soriano; Musa Barrow, Nicola Sansone

Top Picks

Ante Rebic, AC Milan: The attacking midfielder has been playing at a high level of late and has yet to go two consecutive games without scoring in 2020. He set up a goal against Napoli, and he has four goals with two assists in seven games since the league restarted last month.

Musa Barrow, Bologna: Barrow enters this game in a great run of form, as the speedy striker has been one of the most productive forwards in Serie A since the restart with five goals in his last six starts. He is a great bet to partner up front with another forward due to his recent performances.

Captain and Vice-Captain Options

  1. Ante Rebic
  2. Musa Barrow
  3. Hakan Calhanoglu
  4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
