Torino vs Bologna
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 16th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico di Torino (Turin).
The Serie A has quite some matches this weekend where the top-tier sides are pitted against relegation-battlers. This is one of those games, and here we have Torino, currently occupying the sixth and last European spot allotted to Italy, taking on Bologna, one of the three squads in the relegation zone.
Torino is under pressure from Atalanta, who also has the same number of points, and Lazio, with just two fewer points. Misfiring in a single match-day can see them give up their coveted continental spot, and as such, the team will be desperate to give top performances in their remaining matches.
Bologna does not harbor much hope for this tie, considering they are on the road. Their form in away ties has been extremely poor this season.

Going on, the team won their last three fixtures and is unbeaten in their last seven. They were also unbeaten in 20 of their last 24 games. At home, they won the last four fixtures in a row and astonishingly kept a clean sheet in all four. They also kept their nets clean in six of their last eight home ties.
Furthermore, Bologna was winless in 19 of their last 22 match-ups, and in 20 of their last 21 on the road. And finally, six of the last eight h2h wins went to Torino, and Bologna lost their last three visits to this stadium.
It’s a pretty straight forward guess who will win this game. Backing Torino this weekend returns great value.
