AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri insists securing the Serie A title with victory over Bologna on Sunday is no formality.
Milan top the table by eight points with four matches remaining and can wrap up the Scudetto with a win at the San Siro.
Bologna, on a run of three consecutive defeats, have been given little chance of delaying what will be Milan’s first league championship success since 2004.
Nevertheless, Allegri has cautioned against complacency ahead the potentially decisive match.
“We are facing Bologna, who are not yet mathematically safe and desperately need the points,” Allegri said.
“They’ll come here with the bit between their teeth and must not be underestimated. We haven’t won anything yet.”
“I don’t like the atmosphere that has built up around the team this week. There is too much pressure.”
Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and midfielder Mark van Bommel are suspended for Milan, while Alexandre Pato, Gennaro Gattuso and Pippo Inzaghi are all missing through injury.
