Juventus vs Bologna
Italian Serie A.
Date: Saturday, 5 May 2018
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK,
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
Juventus will look to take one step closer towards clinching their seventh straight Scudetto as they welcome Bologna on Saturday evening.
It’s been an entertaining Scudetto battle all season, but it’s not over just yet. Napoli haven’t thrown in the towel, but the Partenopei losing 3-0 to Fiorentina just may have effectively ended proceedings, as the Bianconeri fought to earn a hard-fought 3-2 win over Inter in an enthralling Derby d’Italia win last round. Can they end things this weekend by knocking off the Rossoblu?
Bologna come into this game having lost to AC Milan and really have nothing left to play for. They’re already safe for next season and can’t compete for a European spot and seemingly have already turned their attention towards summer holiday. They come into this game having failed to win their last eight away game and have lost eight of their last nine away games against top half teams.
Juventus have managed to win seven of their last eight home games, with their sole loss coming to Napoli during that run. Next up for them is a clash against AC Milan in the Coppa Italia, during which they can clinch their first piece of silverware so Allegri could opt to rotate his squad somewhat for this game.

Juventus vs Bologna: Prediction
Juventus have only scored more than three goals in three home games this term so it’s highly unlikely they will do that here. Their goal is simply to pick up all three points and hold onto their four point advantage as they chase a seventh straight league title.
