Juventus launched four players from the first minute against Bologna while keeping Wojciech Szczęsny, Alex Sandro, Adrien Rabiot, and Manuel Locatelli on the field. Arek Milik, who was recalled for Dušan Vlahović and Filip Kostić in attack, was one of them. Juventus' front three found the net as they ripped through 3-0, their first winning streak since 2013. Before the game Juventus was within striking distance of the goal after Vlahovic, Sandro, and Cuadrado, but Bologna rarely threatened. With four minutes remaining, Milik scored his first goal of the season. Juventus finished the game with three goals without reply, because Bologna could not keep up.
“I liked the spirit, the solidity of the team, apart from at the end of the first half, when we got a few attacking moves wrong. We should’ve slowed the tempo and kept the ball more in those situations,” Allegri commented on Juve's win.
