Milan-Bologna Preview: Unrecognizable

Milan host Bologna Saturday night at the San Siro, but you probably won't recognize the Rossoneri. That is because they will be wearing the most hideous third kits in recent memory, which are somewhere between the color of split pea soup and puke, or perhaps split pea soup puke. Why Puma would do this to our Champions, I have no idea. We can only hope that it does not affect their performance like the away kits seem to. And poor Mihajlović, recovering from another round of treatment for leukemia, now he has to see this? It is not enough that the Milan team that he once coached has been completely transformed, aside from the Scudetto patches on their kits, this team will be unrecognizable.

So hideous, the models don't even want to touch it

Both Milan and Bologna are coming off of 1-1 draws last weekend. The difference is for Bologna, their draw with Verona gave them their only point so far this season. While they will obviously want to change that, playing Milan away at the San Siro probably does not give them a lot of hope. Plus, Orsolini went and got himself suspended, so Mihajlović will be without him. The good news is that he will be the only player missing for the Rossoblu, so at least Mihajlović will have a relatively complete team to work with.

Great to see Mihajlović back again

Pioli still waits for Ibrahimović, who is recovering from his surgery, and now has Krunić out injured as well. Adli missed at least one day of training because he traveled to be with his wife, who was giving birth to their baby, Alya. So it is unclear whether the new dad will be called up or feature on Saturday. His young friend De Ketelaere is largely rumored to get his first start, such a shame that he will likely do so in such an atrocious kit.

Kits so ugly, they vomited all over the backdrop

Milan learned their Champions League opponents, and now the calendar for the Group Stage has been set. But they will be focused on getting back on track and taking all three points in this match, something they were unable to do away to Atalanta last week. Hopefully, the new kits do not confuse them or impact them negatively. I know they will be affecting me negatively. I highly recommend fans do whatever you would for anti-nausea ahead of this one, and remember to watch for the team with the Scudetto patch. Because even if the kits don't make you puke, they will make your team unrecognizable.
