Bologna is hosting Juventus at Renato Dall’Ara in round 18 of the Italian Serie A. Bologna has been quite solid so far this season, they are scoring a decent number of goals, and they are outside the relegation zone. Juventus is struggling this season, mostly because they don’t have an offense, and they are very far from the top spot.
Bologna is in 10th place with 24 points right now, they are playing well in the attacking end, but their defense is just crap. Just in their last 2 games, Bologna has conceded 5 goals while scoring 3 goals, and they have lost both of those games. I think Bologna is good enough to stay far away from the relegation zone, but I think that’s about all we can expect from them this season. Arnautovic has been on decent form this season, and he is Bologna’s leading goalscorer with 6 goals, while Barrow added 5 goals and 3 assists. Michael, Mbaye, and Schouten are all injured. Bologna is a decent team, an average team in Serie A, but they are well-coached, they have a solid roster, and they can beat any team in Serie A this season.
Juventus is undefeated in their last 4 games, but their biggest success this season is in the Champions League. Juventus has won the top spot in their group, and they will be playing against Villarreal in the next stage, which was pretty lucky if you ask me. In Serie A, Juventus is in 6th place with 28 points, and even though their offense is slowly waking up, it’s far away from where it should be. Dybala is the leading goalscorer for Juventus with only 5 goals, while Morata added 4 goals. Dybala has also added 4 assists. Danilo, Ramsey, and Chiesa are all injured, while Dybala is questionable. Defensively, I think Juventus has been pretty consistent, but their offense is producing a lot, and they are producing often, but they have the quality to do better, and to be better, and they will need to if they want to accomplish something in the Champions League.
Bologna has beaten Juventus only twice in the past, but I think this might be the third time. Bologna and Juventus are in good form, and while Juventus has more quality, Bologna is the home team, and they are quite good at home. I’m gonna try something on Bologna.
