Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris (Genoa).

Genoa will be hosting Bologna in yet another game of the new season of the Seria A at their home ground. The host has lost the last two ties in their schedule. Bologna is unbeaten on their trips on road in the league. The home team has managed to win their first home match but lost the streak in their next fixture by losing 1-2 to Atalanta. Despite the losses, the host has managed to score in all the bouts in the league.

The host has conceded more than they scored in this season. They scored 7 goals while conceding 9 in the meantime. They are currently three points behind the visiting side and will be looking to outrun them in the table. The guest has scored seven goals while conceding six from the league fixtures. They were on a three-game unbeaten run in the league table but were defeated in the previous game at home.

Genoa vs Bologna Head-to-head (h2h)

  • In all their meetings since 2006, the Greyhounds has won nine and lost seven clashes.
  • The total score has not surpassed over 2 goals in the previous 12 clashes.
  • The Griffins has registered four of the previous six victories from their meetings.
  • Their previous meeting hosted by Genoa ended in a 1-0 score favoring the host.

Genoa vs Bologna Prediction

The teams combined have scored 20 goals from their last ten clashes held here. This accounts for an average of 2.0 goals per match. Moreover, only two of the last eleven meetings at this venue had seen over 2 goals in total. So the chances of a high scoring game are very narrow in the upcoming bout.

Genoa did win their previous meeting with Bologna with a 1-0 score on the board. They are still unbeaten in the last two clashes with the visitors. Alongside that, the Griffins has lost only once in the previous five home fixtures. Meanwhile, the Greyhounds have lost four of the last seven trips on the road. However, they have managed to be unbeaten in the last three away ties.

As such, the match will be a low scoring affair with the guest holding the home ground advantage having more control over the game. Since their recent form is not up to the mark, it will be safer to wager a double chance in the game.

Genoa vs Bologna Betting tips

  • Under 3.5 goals @ 1.50 (1/2)
