Verona vs Bologna
Italian Serie A
Date: 21 April 2023, Friday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).

Verona and Bologna will open the Matchday No 31 in Italian top flight in an exciting clash on Friday evening at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.

It is the place where Verona have lost just one of seven league games in 2023 (a 0-3 defeat to Fiorentina in late-February).

Verona will come into this in high spirits after keeping sovereign leaders Napoli to a goalless draw six days ago at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Head coach Marco Zaffaroni can be pleased with the performance his men have put up on the occasion, limiting Napoli to just one shot on goal in the 90 minutes of play.

It is worth noting that Napoli’s coach Luciano Spalletti mixed up his starting XI in an attempt to save his main stars for the mid-week’s Champions League clash against AC Milan, though.

Verona are still in the danger zone but they have at least cut the gap behind Spezia down to just three points after claiming four from the last two league matches with Sassuolo and Napoli.

Nevertheless, Zaffaroni and his troops will face a very difficult task here knowing they are up against an in-form Bologna side.

The visitors moved up to eighth place in the league table after a run of five straight games without a defeat.

They have picked up seven out of nine possible points from the previous three rounds despite playing the likes of Udinese, Atalanta, and AC Milan along the way.

Verona vs Bologna Head-to-head

  • Bologna have been much more successful historically with 15 wins and only 5 defeats in the previous 27 games against Verona.
  • It is, however, worth noting that none of the previous eight head to head matches between these counterparts ended in an away win.
  • Just two of these eight games finished with three or more goals scored.

Verona vs Bologna Prediction

Verona limited Napoli to just one shot on target last weekend, while Bologna conceded only a single goal in the last three league outings despite facing Udinese, Atalanta, and AC Milan along the way.

The Under 2.5 goals FT is the main pick at the odds of 1.53 odds, while we will alternatively chase the 1-1 stalemate at the much more attractive 6.00 odds.

Verona vs Bologna Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.53 (8/15)
  • Correct Score: Draw 1-1 @ 6.00 (5/1) odd.
