The host has run into a bad patch at exactly the wrong moment of the season. One victory in their last 7 league matches, including defeats in the Milan derby and against Juventus, has seen the Milan side falling outside of the top 4 in Serie A. The Rossoneri will need to turn their fortunes around and win if they are to keep their hopes to return to the Champions League.
The visitors though have nothing to play for after successfully avoiding relegation and will likely look to win the match.
Gennaro Gattuso is once again on the other end of injuries with Mattia Caldara becoming the latest to join the injury list after undergoing surgery on his knee that will keep him out for the next 5-6 months.
Caldara will join Andrea Conti, Davide Calabria and long term absentee Giacomo Bonaventura on the injury table.
The Rossoneri will be without their captain Alessio Romagnoli due to suspension after the Italian was sent off in his the last match against Torino.
Cristian Zapata and Ignazio Abate are expected to fill for the suspended captain and injured Caldara.
Suspension: Alessio Romagnoli
Injuries: Mattia Caldara, Andrea Conti, Davide Calabria, Giacomo Bonaventura
Sinisa Mihajlovic will be forced to make a few changes to his side after suspensions to key players Roberto Soriano and Ibrahim Mbaye. They are currently enjoying a pretty good run towards the end of the season.
Adam Nagy will be missing for Bologna through injury.
Suspension: Roberto Soriano, Ibrahim Mbaye
