Bologna vs Sassuolo
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 8 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara (Bologna).
Bologna is just one point ahead of the visitors in the league table. Playing away from home is not the strongest suit for Sassuolo which will hold them back in the encounter.
Bologna vs Sassuolo Match preview
Bologna is unbeaten in their last three matches with two wins in it. They started post lockdown with a loss to Juventus but has stayed undefeated against other mid-table teams.
Their previous encounter was on the road against Inter Milan and had the bragging rights with a 1-2 score on the board.
Their home run hasn’t been the best lately with four winless clashes in the record. They had two losses within the last five attempts as the host and both losses saw them give away clean sheets.
Sassuolo will be on the back of a two-game winning streak in the campaign. Their previous five clashes in the league saw both teams score in each encounter.
They will visit after a 4-2 win at home against Lecce in their previous clash in the league.
Roberto De Zerbi and his team had a tough run on the road with just 4 wins in their last 15 away fixtures in the campaign so far.
The visitors will aim to capitalize on the host’s dip in form and at least take something out of the game as their last three visits to this venue have ended unsuccessfully.
Bologna vs Sassuolo Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only one of the recent five fixtures has ended in a draw.
- Both teams have scored in the last four meetings.
- The host has recorded four of the last five wins.
- The visitor is winless in their recent three visits.
Bologna vs Sassuolo Prediction
Bologna will have doubts in their home ground advantage in the clash but the Neroverdi has also dropped points in their recent outings in the league too, which will be a comfort for the host.
The home win in full-time will be risky considering the host’s dip in form. So, the double chance favoring Bologna with 1.40 odds will be the safest bet for the punters to yield decent returns.
With respect to their recent h2h meetings, expect a similar high-scoring affair. The tip for BTTS with 1.50 odds and over 2.5 goals at 1.57 odds will come in handy for the ninety minutes.
