Bologna vs Atalanta
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 4 November 2018
Kick-Off: 17:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara (Bologna).
Atalanta seem to have turned a corner as of late. La Dea have picked up back to back wins after failing to win their last seven games will be hoping to make it a third straight win as they look to haul themselves up the table. They’ve scored a whopping eight goals in their last two games and will hope to continue their march towards the middle of the table with another win.
Given how congested things are, a win could see Atalanta really closing the gap on the European spots. However, Bologna will be desperate as well to improve. They have secured back to back draws, but still sit in 17th spot and will want to earn a win in front of their home fans.
However that may be easier said than done. Atalanta have a solid record against Bologna, and have won their last five games against the Rossoblu in all competitions. In addition, they have been unbeaten in nine of their last 15 trips to this ground and could make life quite difficult for their hosts, although Bologna have netted two goals in three of their last four games, so they certainly have been having some joy getting forward as well.

Bologna vs Atalanta: Prediction
Atalanta failed to win seven straight league games and now have blown away the opposition in their last two games. However, Bologna have also been scoring as of late, with six goals at home in their last three, but they have also conceded as well, and it’s not really clear if they fully have sorted themselves out. La Dea, meanwhile are starting to look more confident and should be able to pick up all three points
