Bologna-Milan 1-1

The first advance of the 30th day of Serie A ends in a draw. In fact, at the Dall’Ara, it ends 1-1 between Bologna and Milan: Sansone’s early goal is answered by Pobega at the end of the first half.

A shock start for the Rossoneri, who after not even a minute found themselves already down: Posch slipped away on the right and put in the center for Sansone, who anticipated Kalulu and beat Maignan. Milan, coldly hit, tried to regroup and grind out play and went close to equalizing first with Rebic, who framed a Florenzi cross too weakly, and then with the same Azzurri full-back on a free kick, forcing Skorupski into a diving intervention. In the final minutes of the first half came the equalizer: Ballo-Tourè crossed from the left, a rebound favored Pobega who unloaded a fine left-footed shot from the edge that kissed the post and went in.

In the second half, Pioli inserts first Calabria and Saelemaekers, then Leao and Brahim Diaz in search of the winning goal. In the 74th minute Rebic had the ball for 2-1 but his header ended up a whisker wide. A minute later Pobega kicks a shot on an assist from Leao but Lykogiannis immolates himself and saves the hosts. In the final Diaz badly wastes a counterattack, shooting sky high.

A point that satisfies no one: Milan remains momentarily fourth at 53, Bologna is eighth at 44 points, the same as Juve.
