Juventus vs. Bologna Predictions and Preview
Last weekend’s results – Juve’s late comeback win at Inter and Napoli’s defeat at Fiorentina – put the Bianconeri back on course for a seventh league title.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side have re-established their four-point lead over Napoli at the top of the standings and with just three games to go, are on course for the league title once more.
Bologna are one of the few sides who have had nothing to play for over the past month as their season has fizzled out into mid-table mediocrity.
Roberto Donadoni’s side have just one win in nine in a run that has included five defeats and five games where they have not managed to find the back of the net.
The hosts are favourites to win this game at odds of 1/6, with a unlikely away win available at 30/1 and the draw priced at 8/1.
Under 2.5 goals is available at 13/10 while fewer than 1.5 goals is priced at 4/1.
A ‘double chance’ on the visiting underdogs to battle their way to either a point or an unlikely win is available at 11/2.
If you fancy the hosts to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 8/13.
One to watch for Juventus: Gonzalo Higuain ended a run of 10 games without a goal to net the winner against Inter last time out, to bring the Argentine up to 23 goals for the campaign.
One to watch for Bologna: 25-year-old forward Simone Verdi is Bologna’s top league scorer this season (8) and netted in the recent draw at Lazio and victory over Hellas Verona.
Long shot: Bologna have failed to score in five of their last nine games and have conceded just eight goals in that run, while Juve were recently held to draws by lowly SPAL and Crotone. A scoreless draw available at odds of 18/1.
