AC Milan begun the second half of the 2020-21 Serie A season with a win against Bologna, bouncing back from defeats to Atalanta and Inter.
Ante Rebic scored in the first half as he converted a rebound after Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s missed penalty, while Franck Kessie made no mistake with the second spot kick. Although Andrea Poli pulled one back inside the last 10 minutes, it wouldn’t be enough for the hosts.
