AC Milan 2-1 Bologna

Giacomo Bonaventura celebrates
Giacomo Bonaventura has trebled his Serie A goal tally for the season

AC Milan won their first game under new boss Gennaro Gattuso thanks to Giacomo Bonaventura's double against Bologna.

Milan drew against bottom side Benevento and lost to Rijeka in the Europa League in his first two games since replacing Vincenzo Montella.

Bonaventura smashed home a low opener from the edge of the box before Simone Verdi fired a bouncing shot into the top corner to equalise at San Siro.

But Suso crossed for Bonaventura to head in the winning goal.
