Genoa vs Bologna
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris, Genoa.
Despite the recent mid-week loss to Sassuolo, it is more than obvious that Genoa’s form is on the rise. Squad from Luigi Ferarris has managed to collect four points prior to clash in Reggio Emilia, beating Spezia and holding Lazio to a 1-1 draw. Potential victory on Saturday afternoon against Bologna could maybe get them out of the relegation zone.
Griffins are once again carrying the role of underdogs, being priced at 3.10 rate to be victorious. On the other hand, Sinisa Mihajlovic’s squad has won five points from the last five Serie A games. Every single one of those has ended without winner. All in all, we should be in for an interesting fixture.

Genoa vs Bologna Prediction
Davide Ballardini was appointed as new Genoa’s head manager, and as we already mentioned above, there are many improvements visible already. One of the best performances lately happened on 16th December at this venue against AC Milan. Mattia Destro led the team against AC Milan, scored two goals and almost secured all three points for Griffins. Late goal by Kalulu crushed the dream though, and final result was 2-2. Back line conceded late goal against Sassuolo too, so there are still plenty of things to improve.
As for their opponents, Bologna are comfortably sitting in 12th position with 17 points, which is still far away from the red line. They are winless in the last four away days though, so we are feeling confident about picking home win or draw double chance at 1.53. It should be backed with high stake.
