Bologna vs Fiorentina Predictions

Saturday’s first game in Serie A is a clash between 12th and 11th place. Fiorentina are really underachieving this term, which has left them sitting in mid-table. Their struggles were on show in midweek, as they slipped to a 1-1 draw with bottom of the table Crotone. They trailed for quite a while in that game, just about salvaging a point. However, they did claim a first away win of the season last weekend. Can they follow that up with a result here?

Bologna boast a pretty strong home record, so Fiorentina have their work cut out to pick anything up in this one. The hosts have taken 10 points from a possible 15 at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara. However, they’ve failed to win their last two here, after winning three in a row at home. They’re struggling for results in Serie A, having failed to claim a victory in any of their last five. They’ve also conceded in all of those last five.

Bologna have conceded an average of 1.4 goals per game so far. That’s a record the visitors can make the most of, given their impressive goal rate away from home. While La Viola have been goal shy at their own stadium, their travels have been much more exciting. Fiorentina have scored 2.25 goals per game on average in their away matches, although they’ve conceded the same amount. If they continue that here, you’d expect another high scoring trip for them.

Fiorentina have conceded just once in five home games, but their record on the road is awful. Their last five matches away have seen them concede at least twice in each. They may have won at Cagliari last weekend, but they let in three goals on their way to those three points. They’ve conceded 90% of their goals this season outside of their own stadium.

The visitors have seen both sides score in 100% of their away games this term. Bologna have conceded in 60% of their home matches, while 70% of their fixtures have seen both teams find the net. That’s why we’re backing both teams to score here, which is priced at 4/5 with bet365.
