Pioli: 'Final for Milan and Bologna'

Stefano Pioli thinks this could be a very unusual end to the season, as tomorrow is “the first of six finals for both Bologna and Milan.”

The postponement of last week’s fixtures means the remaining rounds will be compressed together.

“It has never happened before that the season ends with six games crammed into 20 days,” said the Rossoblu boss.

“Each team still has an objective to achieve. It’s the first of six finals for both Bologna and Milan, as they have shown strength to fight for the Scudetto with Juventus and know they must always win, while we need points to stay in Serie A.

“I don’t really care about the title race, as all we are taking into consideration are the points for us.

“I expect Milan to be very aggressive at the start, but we have trained well over the week and will be up to the task.”

Bologna are without goalkeeper Jean-Francois Gillet, so Federico Agliardi gets a rare start at San Siro.
