Bologna vs Hellas Verona
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, Bologna.
Current atmosphere inside Bologna’s locker room is surely at very low level. Situation is getting more and more dramatic after every round, as the squad has failed to secure one single victory in the last eight Serie A appearances.
New chance awaits this Saturday at home venue against Hellas Verona. The Mastiffs have been in much better shape, managing to collect ten points more than the opposition so far. Despite being in better position in terms of standings, and greater form, bookmakers are still labelling visitors as the underdogs here. The current price you can get on Verona to win the match is higher than we expected – 3.00.
Bologna vs Verona Head-to-head
Both of the head to head encounters between Bologna and Hellas Verona in the previous season have ended with identical 1-1 draws.
In terms of the all-time stats, Bologna have had much more success than the opposition. They were victorious in 12 occasions, while Verona earned only four victories.
Total of 56 goals was seen in 21 h2h encounters so far, which averages 2.66 per duel.
Bologna vs Verona Prediction
Head manager Sinisa Mihajovic is surely having a lot of headaches due to fact defenders kept only one clean sheet in the last seven Serie A games. That is the main trouble for Bologna right now, as strikers have been pretty much consistent upfront.
A lot of games were saved by Mattia Destro and his brilliant performances. Not even he could help the team avoid 0-2 loss to Genoa last weekend. Bologna’s current stats at home venue are three wins, two draws and three defeats.
Hellas Verona are one of the biggest juggernauts for top guns. This squad has caused so many surprises against top tier teams this season like AC Milan, Juventus, Atalanta and Lazio.
They are in a serious pursuit of one of Europa League places, currently being 9th with 27 points. The Mastiffs are in very good form too, gathering seven points from three games in 2021.
We believe that away win at 3.00 is just a massive value bet and it should be backed with at least small stake.
