CHANCE FOR BOLOGNA!
Late chance for the visitors! They break and work the ball forward as Arnautovic floats a ball for Ferguson at the back post, but the Scot clashes heads with Pobega and the game has a small stoppage in play.

SAVE!
Leao's chipped cross from the right goal-side touchline towards the back post is met by Tonali, but Skorupski stands tall by his near post to make a point-blank save with his feet.

POTENTIAL PENALTY CLAIM?
Bologna think they should have a penalty! A throw in is taken on the left byline by Cambiaso, and the ball eventually finds Sansone, who advances on the penalty area. He runs into Tomori, with the ball evading his grasp and falling to Tonali, who accidentally gets a touch taking the ball back towards goal. Maignan has to make the save.
Sansone thought he was impeded by Tomori there.
70'
CORNER TO MILAN
Milan win a corner, after Saelemaekers forces a save from Skorupski. Tonali delivers an outswinger towards Hernandez, who tries to hit it first-time, but his shot cannons off a Bologna defender. The left-back then gets into a tussle for the ball with Medel, and both players end up in a heap inside the box. The referee awards a free-kick to the visitors.
69'
DRAGGED WIDE!
Milan now get forward after that Bologna chance. Calabria advances from defence and has a go for the bottom-left corner from just outside the box, but he slashes the ball wide.

OFF THE POST!
What a chance for Bologna! After a short delay due to some pushing and shoving in the area before the free-kick, the set-piece is taken short for Sansone. He takes a couple of touches before going for goal from 25-yards out, and his strike smacks the near post and comes back out!
