Juventus v Bologna Predictions and Preview

The Turin giants bounced back from their 1-0 home defeat in the Derby D’Italia from two weeks ago, with a gritty 2-1 win away to Cagliari. Max Allegri’s men found themselves behind as Joao Pedro opened the score for the Sardinians, but second-half strikes from Matthijs De Ligt and Dusan Vlahovic earned Juventus the precious three points.

In result, the Bianconeri have not only kept their five points gap over Roma in the race for top four, but they even managed to narrow down the distance between league leaders Milan to just six points. However, with very few games until the end of the campaign and three teams ahead of them, the Scudetto seems highly unlikely.

However, at least on paper Juventus’ program seems favourable and a home game against Bologna seems like the perfect opportunity for the Bianconeri to add another three points to their tally. The Turin giants are on a 10-games winning streak against I Rossoblu and are unbeaten in 21 consecutive games in this rivalry.

The last Bologna victory against Juve was a 2-0 win in Turin more than a decade ago, while I Rossoblu are yet to win an away game against any team in 2022. However, Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men are coming off a good 2-0 home win against Sampdoria last week thanks to a brace from Marko Arnautovic and with safety not mathematically secured yet, the Emiglia-Romagna side must get more points until the end of the season.

Juventus vs. Bologna full time result odds

Juventus’ injury crisis eased off in recent weeks, but Max Allegri will still have to do without Weston McKennie, Kaio Jorge, Federico Chiesa and Marley Ake and Manuel Locatelli. Paulo Dybala’s role in the team remains a question after it became clear that the Argentinian will not renew his contract and will leave for free in the summer, but La Joya has impressed in recent weeks and is expected to start against Bologna. The hosts are firm 4/11 favourites to get another three points, as everything points out to another victory for the Bianconeri.

Meanwhile, Lorezno De Silvestri is the only notable absentee for the visitors, so Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side will be almost at full strength. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the legendary Serbian tactician, who will have to battle leukemia once again, but knowing Mihajlovic’s character, expect his players to be super motivated and will be looking to get an unlikely victory at 19/2.

Juventus vs. Bologna win to nil odds

Max Allegri’s men won six of their last eight games at home to nil and the same applies for three of their last four meetings with Bologna. At the same time Bologna failed to find the back of the net in three of their last four games on the road, so going with a Juventus victory to nil at 23/20 seems like a good choice.

Juventus vs. Bologna correct score odds

Three of the last four meetings between those teams ended in 2-0 victories for Juventus, while the Bianconeri won five of their last eight home games with the same result. Bologna are winless in six consecutie games on the road, so our pick for Saturday is a 2-0 victory for the hosts available at 11/2 in these Juventus vs. Bologna tips.

Juventus vs. Bologna first goalscorer odds

Dusan Vlahovic scored a decisive winner in the 2-1 win against Cagliari last time. The Serbian forward now has 22 Serie A strikes to his name, but he is two goals behind Ciro Immobile in the capocannoniere race. Vlahovic is 31/10 to break the deadlock against the I Rossoblu this weekend, while the odds raise to 51/2 if he does so and the game ends in a 2-0 victory for the the Bianconeri.
