Reason for Bologna vs Verona Predictions
Bologna and Verona take on each other at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara in the last game of the Serie A Day 3. The Rossoblu did well to beat Salernitana 3-2 in their opener, with the team holding Atalanta to a goalless draw in Bergamo before the international break. Summer signing Marko Arnautovic has already started paying off, meaning that the opposition defenders should have the controversial Austria attacker at bay. Vignato is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. It’s been a rare occasion in recent times where Bologna has shown defensive steel. The facts show that Bologna has failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous six matches, leaking 15 goals in the process. It will be interesting to see if that trend can be sustained here. Going into this encounter, Bologna is unbeaten in the league by Hellas Verona in their last six matches. Mattias Svanberg plays excellently and does not allow the opponent too much action in the middle of the field. Marko Arnautovic is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance.
The Mastini, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Sassuolo (2-3) and Inter (1-3), and seeing that Bologna has turned their Stadio Renato Dall’Ara into a real fortress. The stats don’t lie, and Hellas Verona has been scored against in 5 of their last six matches, seeing opposing sides hit 11 goals overall. At the back, Hellas Verona has been far from perfect. Owing to a fully healthy squad to pick from, the Hellas Verona boss Eusebio Di Francesco doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this game. The visitors have not emerged victorious against Bologna in games played away from home for the previous three matches in the league. Verona hasn’t won away from home in their last four league matches. Ivan Ilic enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems. Mattia Zaccagni plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Verona is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Bologna should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
