Roma vs Bologna
Italian Serie A
Date: 4 January 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 15:30 UK / 16:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Roma will be looking to terminate the three-game winless thread on Wednesday afternoon when they host Bologna in the 16th Serie A round.
The Roma dropped out of the top-six in the league standings after a run of three straight matches without a win (one loss and two draws).
They have generally been playing hot and cold since the beginning of the season. Nevertheless, it is very hard not to consider them big favorites here against Bologna.
First of all, Bologna are dreadful travelers this season. They won one, drew one, and lost five of seven league matches on the road, shipping 19 goals in the process.
This will be the music to the ears of Roma’s attackers who should have a lot of room to deliver past such defense on Wednesday.
Tammy Abraham, Stephan El Shaarawy, and Nicolo Zaniolo were on target in Roma’s recent 3-0 drubbing of RKC Waalwijk in their final check before the continuation of the domestic league campaign.
Abraham has only three goals to his name, but his recent form, paired with Bologna’s horrendous defensive showings on travels this season, makes us like his chances of scoring on Wednesday.
On another note, we must also mention that Bologna have won all three of their mid-season exhibitions against Kapfenberg, Mallorca, and Verona, allowing just one goal in the process.
