Bologna vs Genoa
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 10 February 2019
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara (Bologna).
Sinisa Mihajlovic made a dream debut on Bologna’s bench as I Rossoblu claimed a huge 0-1 victory over Inter Milan away at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza last weekend.
It was team’s maiden league win since late-September last year. A streak of 14 consecutive league outings without a victory dropped Bologna down into the red zone, but the mentioned win at Giuseppe Meazza brought them a glimmer of hope.
The hosts are now only one point shy of 17th-placed Empoli and they have a game in hand on them. Can Sinisa Mihajlovic make it two wins in two games in charge on Sunday when his team play host to bottom-half Genoa in the first fixture of the day?
Bologna vs Genoa: Head-to-head
Bologna have a positive head to head record against Il Grifone.
I Rossoblu won 9, drew 5 and lost 7 of 21 ties against Genoa.
Bologna were particularly successful in H2H games at their Renato Dall’Ara where they won 6, drew 2 and lost 2 of 10 encounters with Genoa.
All of past eleven head to head matches saw fewer than three goals scored.
Bologna vs Genoa: Prediction
Bologna produced a super strong defensive effort last weekend when they kept a clean sheet against Inter Milan away from home. It was a marvellous response to the previous 0-4 defeat to Frosinone.
The hosts will definitely be looking to build on such showing and keep things tight at the back for the second time in a row here against Genoa.
Il Grifone generally found goals hard to come by of late. They failed to score a single in three successive games, but managed to improve such record in past two rounds bagging four past Empoli (a 1-3 win) and Sassuolo (a 1-1 draw).
Genoa generally struggled to perform away from home throughout the entire season. They lost seven of ten league matches on the road in this term of Serie A. We predict the home win in a low-scoring contest here at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
