Fiorentina vs Bologna
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 14 April 2019
Kick-Off 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).
Bologna moved away from the danger area thanks to a brilliant display in a 3-0 drubbing of rock-bottomed Chievo on Monday evening at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara. I Rossoblu are enjoying a stellar form under the new manager Sinisa Mihajlovic. They won four of past five league outings and could actually save the season by avoiding the relegation with the continuation of such winning streak.
Mihajlovic can be thrilled with his men’s attacking shape in recent weeks. I Rossoblu notched two or more goals in four of last five league games. They could create lots of problems to Fiorentina’s vulnerable defensive line on Sunday afternoon when Bologna travel to Florence to take on Viola in a very interesting 32nd round match-up at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Fiorentina vs Bologna: Head-to-head
The head to head record might be a concern for Bologna who found it tough to play Viola throughout the course of history.
Fiorentina lead the head to head tie by ten wins coming into 34th clash with I Rossoblu.
Viola won four and drew one of last five meetings with Bologna.
At home, Fiorentina won 10, drew 5 and lost only 1 of past 16 ties against I Rossoblu.
Fiorentina vs Bologna: Prediction
The head to head record speaks in Fiorentina’s favour, but the visitors are heavy form favourites here. Viola were not pulling up any trees lately. They go into this winless in last eight matches in all competitions.
The lack of meticulousness at the back was the main reason for such negative thread. Fiorentina failed to keep things quiet defensively in nine consecutive outings. The atmosphere in the dressing room is far from ideal and Stefano Pioli might likely leave the managerial position at the end of another subpar season for the team.
There is no value in backing the home win at 1.90 whatsoever. Both teams to score is a much wiser betting option at 1.80 based on everything written above.
