Bologna vs Benevento
Italy Serie A
Date: Friday, 12 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, Bologna.
Bologna and Benevento will raise the curtain on the Gameweek No 22 in Italian Serie A on Friday evening at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
The outfits are lock on 23 points in the bottom half of the standings. The danger area is eight points away, meaning we do not have too many reasons to call this a relegation six-pointer (yet).
I Rossoblu will enter the tie in the highest of spirits. They have produced one of the best showings of the season last weekend, netting three goals in a comprehensive clean-sheet victory over relegation strugglers Parma.
Musa Barrow completed a brace to take his league tally to five goals this season, while Riccardo Orsolini finished the job by scoring one himself in the stoppage time at Stadio Ennio Tardini.
The team led by Sinisa Mihajlovic have now won two of the last four league matches (the other two were defeats against the likes of Juventus and Milan). They will have a great opportunity to keep the stellar spell of form going here against the out-of-form Benevento.
Bologna vs Benevento Head-to-head
This will only be the fourth head to head encounter between the two sides.
Bologna won two and lost one of the previous three.
However, Benevento clinched a 1-0 victory when the two teams met each other in the first half of the season at Stadio Ciro Vigorito.
Bologna vs Benevento Prediction
Gli Stregoni have been one of the most pleasant surprises of the season just a couple of months ago. However, their form has hit a massive slump in the last several weeks. Filippo Inzaghi’s troops are winless in five subsequent Serie A outings. They managed no more than two points in the process. Inzaghi has a massive headache over his men’s defensive displays as Benevento suddenly look as the worst defensive team in the league.
Gli Stregoni conceded four goals in three of the last five league matches. They have not kept a clean sheet in any of the last seven Serie A fixtures. Knowing that Bologna have just demolished Parma 0-3 on the road last weekend, we have no other option but to back the home win at the odds of 1.80 here.
