Bologna vs Empoli
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara (Bologna).
A real buzz is expected in and around Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Saturday afternoon when Bologna and Empoli take on each other in a super important relegation six-pointer in 34th round of Serie A.
Both teams were struggling to stay above the red zone line throughout the entire season, but it’s Bologna who managed to find the wanted shape and escape the danger area with a series of positive results under the new manager Sinisa Mihajlovic.
I Rossoblu won five, drew one and lost one of past seven league matches to move five points above Empoli in the relegation area.
Bologna were impeccable in front of the home crowd lately as they won four on the trot in Serie A at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara. They scored at least two goals in each of victories in the process and they were especially impressive seven days ago in a 3-0 thumping of Sampdoria.
Bologna vs Empoli: Head-to-head
Draw was the most frequent of outcomes in the history of head to head ties between these two likes.
It happened on six occasions in thirteen meetings.
We have to say Bologna only lost one of six home clashes with Azzurri actually (3 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat).
Empoli picked up a 2-1 victory when teams locked horns in this term of Serie A.
Bologna vs Empoli: Prediction
Empoli are in a much tougher position coming into five final games of the season. They are four points short of the safe zone and they will come into this low on confidence after a tough 2-4 home defeat to bottom-half rivals SPAL last weekend.
Azzurri took just one point in past three league games proving to be very easy to break down against the likes of Udinese (a 3-2 defeat) and SPAL (a 2-4 loss). They are up against a red-hot opposition who’ve won four in a row in their own backyard. The home win is the only way to go here.
