Fiorentina vs Bologna Match preview
The 2-1 loss on the road against AS Roma last time out in the league broke their six-game unbeaten run in the schedule. They have recorded three wins in their last ten fixtures in the campaign.
On the contrary, Bologna broke their five-game winless streak in the schedule with a 3-2 win at home against Lecce in their previous league clash.
Despite coming on the back of a win in the contest, the visitor has been winless in their recent three outings in the league away appearances.
In the meantime, the host has lost only one of their past five home matches in the schedule. This shows a better opportunity for the home team in the clash.
The teams had shared the spoils in a 1-1 encounter in the reverse fixture this season. Since their last meeting had been a tight encounter, expect fewer goals in ninety minutes at Florence.

Fiorentina vs Bologna Prediction
Fiorentina is in a better form in the campaign lately and would want to finish their season in a pleasant note in their schedule. Since they do not face any pressure in the game, we can probably see better use of the ground advantage from the host.
Bologna has been caught in some bad run lately and their only consolation win in recent times is against Lecce, which is a relegation prone side in the table. Their away form is better than the host’s home record, but their trips to Florence haven’t been their cup of tea since 2010.
In the reverse fixture this season, the team shared the spoils in a 1-1 encounter. The safest option in the match will be a draw no bet over Fiorentina with 1.50 odds based on their overall performance in the league and h2h history with the visitors.
Since 2009, none of their meetings have produced over three goals in a fixture. So, the chances of a high-scoring affair are limited by three goals and the tip for under 3.5 goals with 1.40 odds will come in handy for the punters in the encounter.
