Torino vs Bologna Prediction & Betting tips
The match between Torino and Bologna promises to be an interesting one, because both teams have a lot at stake. Torino wants to maintain sixth place to play European football for the first time since the 2014-2015 season, Bologna has almost escaped from the relegation zone due to last week’s victory. Earlier this season it was also a party for the neutral spectator, when it became 2-2 in Bologna.
Through an almost perfect series of matches, Torino has put itself in pole position for a ticket for the Europa League. It has been undefeated for seven games and won five of them. Because of this it has climbed to a shared sixth place with Atalanta. Il Toro has a lead of seven points on Fiorentina and five points on Sampdoria, but the main competitor is Lazio, which is two points behind.
Torino has managed to achieve this excellent series mainly through its good defense. In six of these seven games, it kept the out, last weekend it got its first goal since January 19 against. Out of relegation candidate Frosinone, the team from Turin trailed 1-0, but managed to reverse this in the second half to a 1-2 victory thanks to two goals from Andrea Belotti. The Italian’s second goal was particularly good, he managed to surprise his direct opponent and the goalkeeper from the turn and scored in half a turn.
The arrival of trainer Siniša Mihajlović has clearly given Bologna the fire it needed in the fight against relegation. In his first week there was already 0-1 won against Inter and 1-1 played against Genoa. After this, the Serbian coach also played well in the difficult matches against Juventus and AS Roma and in both cases it deserved a draw but went home scoreless. After Bologna also failed to score a point after Udinese after a good first half, there was finally another win last weekend.
At home against direct competitor Cagliari, the most scoring player Santander dropped out after twenty minutes, despite that, Bologna scored twice. In the same half, Pulgar scored a penalty, in the second half I Rossoblu was lord and master and Soriano took care of the liberating 2-0.
Federico Santander will probably not be able to play for a few weeks due to the shoulder injury. In Bologna, he hopes that he will be fit in time for the home game against Chievo in early April, in which only one win counts.
