Roma vs Bologna Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 18th February 2019
Roma vs Bologna – Serie A: Roma, that sits in 6th place of the Serie A with 38 points
Hosts at the Stadio Olimpico this Bologna side, that has gotten 19 points in the 23 previous rounds, sitting in 17th place.
Roma, after the victory against FC Porto on a match counting towards the Champions League, turn their focus again onto the Italian Serie A, where they sit in 6th place at the moment, still having legitimate aspirations to ensuring a spot in the following Champions League next season,
because the disadvantage to AC Milan and Inter that sit in 4th and 3rd place respectively are only 4 and 5 points, which means it will be a fight until the end for those positions.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s men have been playing well, except for that meltdown in Florence, with the humiliating 7-1 loss in the Coppa Italia, that was their only loss in 9 matches, with the team also having won 6 of those 9 matches.
Playing in front of their own crowd, in 11 league matches, they only lost once, against SPAL, by 0-2, winning 6 other matches and drawing on 4 occasions.
Bologna is a chronical relegation contender, going into another round in a dangerous position, sitting in 17th place, but with the same points as Empoli, that is already on the relegation zone and with only a 2-points advantage to Frosinone, that occupies the second-to-last place of the league table.
Playing away from home, this Bologna side, in 12 matches, has only won once, curiously against the powerful Inter Milan on the last round away from home, drawing 5 other matches and losing 6 times already.
Roma vs Bologna– Betting Tip and Prediction: :
For this match and with 5 teams at the top separated by only 5 points, any slip-up and against a team from the bottom might mean they lose their spot at the end of the season, so, because of that, I predict a strong start from Roma,
who should look to score right from the get-go, in order not to let their direct opponents gain an even bigger advantage up front.
Roma has, alongside Juventus and Napoli, one of the best attacks playing at home, with 28 goals scored in 11 matches, and with an impressing record of 4.1 goals scored per match on average at the Olimpico (best record in the league),
I can only predict another match with goals, and most of them being scored by the home side.
