Bologna vs Parma: Prediction
The Veltri will be looking to end their bad run when they take on their biggest rivals, Parma, in Derby dell’Emilia on Sunday. Bologna dropped to 15th place in the Serie A table following a 1-3 loss at the hands of Sassuolo at MAPEI Stadium. They have claimed just five points from last nine games.
Sinisa Mihajlovic proved last season that he can turn the fortunes of a struggling club around and I expect them to bounce back.
Bani and Danilo and suspended; Destro and Dijks should make the bench.
Parma moved up in the standings after a 2-0 home win over Roma in the previous round. Now sitting at solid 8th position with the win-draw-loss record of 5-2-5, Roberto De Zerbi’s side wlll be hoping to make amends for last season’s humiliation at Renato Dall’Ara stadium.
Winless on the road since Matchday 2, the Gialloblu’s are set to be without several starters in this one.
Their top performer Gervinho suffered a hamstring injury and is regarded as highly doubtful for the trip – and a host of players will be evaluated (Cornelius, Inglese, Karamoh, Grassi, Laurini.
Hernani is out due to yellow-cards accumulation.
Bologna have collected 7 points from five home games this season. They’re scoring and conceding the same numbers – on average 1.40 goals per game.
The Sunday’s guests have 1-2-2 record on the road. The Gialloblu’s have an average of 1.20 goals per bout, whilst conceding Bologna’s numbers – 1.40.
The hosts will be eager to snap their three-game losing streak I’m willing to back them against shorthanded Parma. They surely know how to handle them.
As an alternative bet, I’m going with over 2.5 goals. At least three goals have been scored in last four games at Bologna’s ground. Under came in just once – against SPAL, back in August.
Parma have scored at least one goal in three of five away fixtures on the road. Even though several high-profile players are questionable for this one, I won’t be surprised if they get on the scoresheet – after all, it’s a Derby.
