The Brazilian scored an integral goal for Milan last week and will look to repeat his heroics against Bologna. He will bear the brunt of the scoring load along with Cassano on Sunday afternoon and they should be able to get the job done.

The veteran striker has rolled back the years this season, scoring an impressive 19 goals to help Bologna keep their head above water in the fight for relegation. He will be the dangerman on Sunday afternoon.

Editor's Prediction

Milan could win the Scudetto on Sunday if they beat Bologna and Inter slip up against Cesena the day before. Even without Ibrahimovic and Pato upfront the league leaders have enough firepower to take care of business at San Siro.
