Bologna vs Napoli
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 8 November 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Renato Dall’Ara Stadium, Bologna.
Bologna have finally picked it up with last week’s wins over Reggina (2-0) and Cagliari (3-2) and they’ll hope to keep it up at Renato Dall’Ara Stadium, hosting Napoli for their Matchday 7 clash. They have been scoring goals but Sinisa Mihajlovic had little to be happy about beforehand, as his men fell victim to Milan (2-0), Benevento (1-0), Sassuolo (3-4), and Lazio (2-1).
Napoli will hope to prove their worth and another big gun Bologna fail to deal with. They come into the match with a narrow 1-2 win earned in Rijeka and while they generally had struggled to retain a winning streak, it feels Gennaro Gattuso’s men enjoy a good mood early in the campaign.
Partenopei haven’t been as impressive in the final third as they kicked it off but still managed to beat Benevento (1-2) and Real Sociedad (0-1) before seeing in-form Sassuolo (0-2) snatch all three points at San Paolo Stadium. They sit just a point behind Juventus and Atalanta in the top 4 and have everything to play for here, despite it still being very early to judge.
Bologna vs Napoli Milan Head-to-head
Bologna bagged two wins in a row before holding Napoli to a 1-1 draw in July.
We’ve been used to thrillers along the way, with goals on both ends and at least three goals in four of the last five encounters.
Napoli beat Bologna six times in a row before seeing a three-game winless streak in head-to-head clashes.
Napoli last beat Bologna in December 2018, when Dries Mertens bagged a last-minute winner.
Bologna vs Napoli Prediction
We will now back Napoli to snatch all three points in Bologna but we feel it will be no easy task to do so. Bologna have been scoring goals quite regularly and we hope to see them make an impact now as well, going for an Away win and a YES on Both teams to score at enticing 3.00.
With that in mind, it’s easy to make a case we should be in for another high-scoring head-to-head matchup. We’ve seen both sides in good form up front and we’re hoping for more of the same, as we follow in the footsteps of many heavy hitters with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1.53.
