Bologna vs Salernitana
Italy – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 1 September 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
Both Bologna and Salernitana are teams that have been struggling with their defense for the past several match days in the Italian top flight. And this is not something new for these teams. This has been a familiar sight even in previous seasons as well.
Salernitana were actually the last safe team in the Italian league in the 2021-22 campaign. They had finished 17th in a table of 20, and they had a surplus of just one point over the relegation cut off. In fact, they had managed to register a total of just seven wins all through the campaign.
It goes without saying that they had let in goals in plenty all through this run and the situation was even worse in their away fixtures.
Meanwhile Bologna had finished 13th in a table of 20 and they had a – 11 goal difference at the end of the run. They too have been letting in goals in huge numbers – and even so in front of their home crowd.
Going on goals have also come in plenty whenever these two teams have locked horns in the past and taking into account all these observations, it is expected that we are about to witness a high-scoring affair this Thursday.
