Bologna vs Juventus Prediction & Betting tips
In the Italian Serie A, twelve full days are still to be completed by the end of July or early August. The pros are facing numerous English weeks, which will ultimately decide who gets the Scudetto this season. According to the current status, the “old lady” from Turin has once again the best starting position of all clubs. Not much of the dominance of days past was seen at the Bianconeri before the forced break.
The team of coach Maurizio Sarri is currently just one point ahead of the pursuers Lazio Rome in the classification and must therefore fear for the successful defense of the title. It will be all the more important for Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. that after the lost cup final they will at least start everyday life in the league with a sense of achievement. Before the Bologna game against Juventus, the odds of the best bookmakers beat quite clearly in the direction of the “Gobbi”.
Nevertheless, the favorite should not make the mistake and underestimate the hosts from the north of the country. The bottom line is that Rossoblu is playing a decent season and is already tenth in the table, nine points ahead of the relegation zone. In addition, the Bologna match against Juventus should be taken into account for the forecast that the “greyhounds” could already score against Lazio Rome, AS Roma, Atalanta Bergamo or Naples this year.
Not least because of this, before the Bologna match against Juventus, we refrain from guessing the outcome of the game and instead predict that the old lady will score in both halves. The Sarri-Elf could benefit from the fact that the white-blacks already have two competitive games in their bones and can assess their own performance better than the red-blue ones, who have not even had the chance to play an official test game after the long break to be completed.
The Bologna Football Club has undergone an impressive development in the past year and a half. Mainly responsible for this is coach Sinisa Mihaijlovic, who took over the Rossoblu in last season after 21 match days in 18th place and still in tenth place. The Northern Italians are again among the positive surprises in the current game year. Tenth place is currently available again, with the lead over relegation places already increasing to nine points.
Consequently, the Serbian coach, who suffers from leukemia and therefore does not always stay with the team, was offered a new long-term contract until 2024 a few days ago, which he promptly signed. Next Monday, the former world-class soccer player with his hungry charges against the reigning champions now wants to surprise.
It is not surprising that the Bianconeri is traded as a favorite between Bologna and Juventus according to the odds. The Rossoblu should definitely not be written off prematurely, especially since they only lost four of their 13 home games in the current season (four wins, five draws) and also proved time and again against the country’s top teams that they can be uncomfortable opponents .
Among other things, Bologna won 2-1 at home against Champions League participant Atalanta Bergamo, kidnapped all three points from Naples or did not lose against second-placed Lazio Rome (2-2) in front of their home crowd. In this respect, it can at least not be completely ruled out that the red-blue will surprise the old lady too. We would still not make bets on the underdog.
This is partly due to the anything but stable defensive, which was the last time without conceding a goal in September and only kept the clean slate twice throughout the season. In 13 home games, the Mihaijlovic team also conceded more goals than they could score. In view of these very interesting statistics, it could be advisable to risk the prediction between Bologna and Juventus that the guests will score in both halves.
At the restart, the home side will have to forego three banned players. In particular, the defeats by central defender Mattia Bani and six-man Jerdy Schouten weigh heavily and could not do the Rossoblu defensive alliance well. In addition, Federico Santander and possibly the battered Skov Olsen are missing.
The “old lady” would certainly have imagined the restart after the compulsory break quite differently. Maurizio Sarri’s men had actually announced the goal internally to bring Coppa Italia back to Turin in 2020. After a lackluster 0-0 in the semi-final second leg against AC Milan, which was enough to make it into the final, Bianconeri lost to SSC Napoli and had to congratulate the opponent at the foot of Vesuvius after the final whistle.
Because Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. are in the premier class, which is known to continue in August, after the 0-1 defeat at Olympique Lyon in the round of 16 already under pressure, Serie A may currently be the only oasis of wellbeing for the Italian industry leader. In safety, the Sarri team should not weigh themselves at the national level either, because Lazio Rom is a carefree rival in second place.
From the point of view of Vecchia Signora, it will be all the more important to continue the season successfully on Monday evening. Among the favorites for the favorite is the fact that they already have two competitive games in their bones and therefore probably have to be given a slight advantage in terms of game practice. After the long break, the home side doesn’t even know where they really stand.
In addition, of course, the existing quality speaks for the team from the north-west of Italy. But: So far, the defending champion 2019/20 has not really covered himself with fame abroad. The best home team of the series (twelve wins, one draw) already lost three times away (eight wins, two draws) and often presented themselves too harmless, especially offensive. This should also be the reason why the betting odds for our recommendation for hits from the old lady were set so high in both rounds between Bologna and Juventus.
However, we believe in the stronger leaders and additionally argue that the Bianconeri will go into the game with anger in the stomach after the defeat in the cup final. So it is quite possible that the knot will finally burst in the first league game after the long break. Khedira, Higuain or Chiellini will still not be available, but his return is at least getting closer.
