The Italy international realizes that the Rossoblu will not be pushovers, though, and has singled out Alberto Gilardino as its main attacking threat.
"Bologna have good technical qualities and we'll have to be careful because they have quality in the middle and up front. Gilardino is back scoring for them, but we absolutely have to win," Montolivo told Milan Channel.
The midfielder then went on to say that he is prepared to play in whichever the coach needs him.
"Playing in front of the defense? I like it and as I always say, I'll do anything for the team. If I play there on Sunday, I'll give everything I have.
He added, "I'm very happy to be a part of the Milan family. When you play for the big teams, you always have that special motivation."
Montolivo has made 18 Serie A appearances for Milan so far this term, netting two goals in the process.
