      Bologna vs Empoli Predictions

      Italian Serie A’s last weekend kicks off on Saturday night with an intriguing match-up between a pair of intriguing teams in Bologna and Empoli.

      Newly-promoted Bologna have six wins from 16 games, are 14th in the table and five points clear of the relegation zone. There are positive signs that this team has what it takes to survive this season. They defend well, play their best football at home and seem to pick up wins when they need to.

      They should enter Saturday’s game with plenty of confidence. In midweek action they followed up an incredible 3-2 home win over Napoli with an almost as impressive 1-0 away win over Genoa.

      On Saturday, they face ninth place Empoli, who are possibly on even better form. Empoli are unbeaten in four games and have picked up three straight victories. Still, their last two victories did come against relegation favourites Carpi and Verona.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Bologna home form

      They’ve played good football at home in general, especially against the teams around them. Of course, the win over Napoli was a highlight, but we generally like Bologna to compete with anyway in their own stadium.

      2. Fantastic odds

      Empoli’s strong recent form has actually made them slight favourites in this game and we’re getting Bologna as 6/4 underdogs at home against a team that realistically is pretty similar. It’s a great betting opportunity.

      3. Not buying on Empoli

      This is a solid team that shouldn’t get dragged into a relegation battle. Still, we’re not buying on this recent run, where they’ve only really beaten a totally out of sorts Lazio and a pair of teams that could easily both be in Serie B next season.
