Genoa vs Bologna 12 Dec 2015: Serie A Preview and Predictions
12 December 2015/0900ET
Serie A has been a real tight contest this year and it has been my favorite league to watch. This Saturday Italian football will see Genoa host Bolognia in a game that will be filled with passion. I am looking forward to this game since it will be good to watch two teams trying to prove that they belong in the top flight of Italian football.
Genoa sit just outside the relegation zone and they will know that it is important that they start winning matches, especially at home, if they want to play in Serie A next season. This team has historically been a club that performs well at home and it is easy to understand why when you take a look at the home crowd. Genoa have not been playing exceptionally well this season but this weekend will be a chance for them to turn it around and get a much needed three points. This side has quality and with a striker such as Pandev in their ranks they should be able to win a lot more games than they are at the moment.
Bologna are also a club who are struggling to stay out of the relegation zone and they will know that they have to get a result in these sorts of matches if they wish to remain in Serie A. This team has had a rough few weeks but last match they turned around their fortune as they beat table toppers Napoli. This match will give them a ton of confidence and they will want to take it into this match against Genoa. Bologna have former Roma striker Destro who is a very good player and they will want him to perform and if he does then anything is possible.
Overall I think that this is going to be a great game and both teams have a ton to play for. As betting goes, I think betting on the outright result is the way to go simply since we are getting such great odds. I think that Genoa will win this game. Both sides are pretty evenly matched on paper but the home ground advantage in Italy is huge and I think that the Genoa fans will get their team over the line.
