Bologna vs Juventus
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 24 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara (Bologna).
Sinisa Mihajlovic got off to a fabulous start on Bologna’s bench as his men stunned Inter Milan 0-1 away at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on his managerial debut with the team. Nevertheless, the Serbian manager went on to claim just one point from two following ties against Genoa (a 1-1 draw) and Roma (a 2-1 defeat). I Rossoblu will thus have a mountain to climb to save the top flight status for the next season. They are currently in the danger area being three points shy of 17th-placed Empoli after Azzurri’s impressive 3-0 win over Sassuolo last weekend.
To make things worse for Mihajlovic and his side, they are about to take on the reigning champions and sovereign leaders Juventus on Matchday No 25. Bianconeri will be looking to rebound from an unpleasant 2-0 loss to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday evening at Wanda Metropolitano. Massimiliano Allegri’s troops are in a very tough position in the Champions League as a failure in the last 16 round would probably ruin the season in spite of the fact they will likely claim another domestic trophy in Serie A.
Bologna vs Juventus: Head-to-head
Bologna did not have much luck in head to head clashes against Juventus over the course of history.
Bianconeri won six on the trot against I Rossoblu.
Juventus have 30 wins to Bologna’s 2 in 41 H2H ties.
I Rossoblu bagged just one goal in last four meetings with Bianconeri.
Bologna vs Juventus: Prediction
Bologna managed only 8 goals in 11 home outings in this term of Serie A. They are up against league’s best defensive line and we can hardly see such poor attacking record improved on Sunday afternoon at Renato Dall’Ara.
The visitors are 13 points clear at the top of the standings. They do not have a true competitor in domestic circles. They won 21 and drew 3 of 24 league matches this season. Juve scored three goals in each of past three Serie A affairs. The away win is the only logical betting option here.
