Bologna vs Napoli Prediction & Betting tips
Sinisa Mihajlovic is a living legend in Italy. The Serbian coach still holds the record for the most free-kick goals in Serie A and has also made a name for himself in his second career as chief coach. The tragic leukemia disease made headlines a year ago and yet Mihajlovic has always given 100 percent for his club.
On the penultimate matchday he showed a little too much effort on the sidelines against Sassuolo and saw the red card because of complaining. After being banned against Parma, Mihajlovic meets another trainer’s volcano on Wednesday evening.
We’re talking about Gennaro Gattuso, who holds the strings at SSC Napoli. It remains to be seen whether the players will show a similar level of commitment in this game, which is not about much in terms of sport. The favorite from the best bookmakers on the betting basis is the guest from southern Italy. The kick-off is at 18:30 p.m.
Despite the many events this season, Bologna has had a relatively quiet sporting season with the illness of the head coach and the interruption of the game. The club is in 10th place in the secured midfield in the Serie A table. There is not much more up or down and the team has yet to show any drop in voltage.
For example, two weeks ago, Inter Milan were surprisingly beaten 2-1 away behind. The last encounter in Parma at the weekend was almost as good as when the hosts were able to take one point after a 2-0 deficit with two goals in stoppage time.
Coach Mihajlovic will have noticed the waning strength of his charges against the end of the game and will use some fresh forces for the duel against Napoli on Wednesday. Ibrahima Mbaye, Andreas Skov Olsen or storm legend Palacio can hope for a place in the starting line-up.
Bologna only ranks 15th in the home table. The last three in the home stadium comes from the beginning of February. Accordingly, there will be motivation among the hosts despite the low sporting relevance. Between Bologna and Naples, the tip on the odds of the hosts should be enjoyed with caution.
Although Naples is right in the middle of the battle for the international starting positions, the sporting appeal is no longer available to guests either. The ticket for the Europa League was already secured by winning the title in Coppa Italia and the Champions League ranks are no longer within reach.
However, this is no reason for Gennaro Gattuso and his team of trainers to engage in experiments. Naples will compete in the Champions League final mini-tournament in Lisbon in August and want to keep up the game rhythm until then.
That is why the best eleven of the Neapolitans also played against AC Milan at the weekend. In a very entertaining game, the points were split after 90 minutes (2: 2). Dries Mertens and Giovanni di Lorenzo scored the goals for the home team. The very good away record of the past weeks and months is to be expanded on Wednesday.
Six of the last seven encounters abroad have been won. Only the strongest team in Serie A, Atalanta Bergamo, suffered a 0-2 defeat. There are no locks and new injuries to report despite the high load of the past few weeks, so Gattuso can draw on the full.
Ex-Leipzig’s Diego Demme is a candidate for the starting XI after his dismissed ban and his short stint against Milan. Regardless of individual personalities, the bet on the odds for the away win is certainly not a bad idea between Bologna and Naples, since the individual quality on the part of the guests is much higher.
