Bologna vs Roma
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, Bologna.
Most recent 1-3 loss to CSKA Sofia in Bulgaria shouldn’t worry any of AS Roma’s fans. The team has secured the first position in this Europa League group a while ago, and Fonseca used opportunity to send reserve players. Situation has been improving on all fronts after a slow start to the new campaign. Thanks to ten points collected in last five rounds, La Lupa jumped to 6th position in Serie A, just three behind 2nd placed Inter Milan.
Things could get much better with a potential victory this Sunday on hot ground in Bologna. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s boys have achieved three domestic wins lately, but they are struggling against top tier teams. All in all, we should witness an interesting game. Visitors from the capital are favorites for the win at 2.00 odds.
Bologna vs Roma Head-to-head
Bologna have caused a massive upset by beating Roma at Olimpico last season in February. Final result was 3-2 and man of the match was Musa Barrow who scored two goals. La Lupa returned the favour and conquered this stadium with a 2-1 win though.

Bologna vs Roma Prediction
As mentioned above, Bologna are doing a great job against mid and lower table teams, beating Sampdoria, Crotone and Cagliari in the last 40 days. The only losses happened against strong opponents like Napoli (0-1) and Inter Milan (1-3). Squad is currently sitting in 10th place with 12 points, far above the relegation zone which eventually is the primary goal for the season.
Roma will have to do better if they want to stay in race for the title and UCL positions. Their record on the road so far is not looking good, having two victories, one draw and two losses. Last weekend La Lupa wasn’t able to beat Sassuolo at home, mainly because Pedro was sent off in the first half. We have faith in Fonseca’s squad and their quality, so we will back away win for Sunday’s clash.
