Reason For Bologna vs Lecce Predictions

  • Bologna have won all five meetings with teams in the bottom three
  • The hosts have failed to keep a clean sheet in 30 Serie A games
  • Lecce have conceded two or more goals in eight of their last nine away trips
  • Bologna have won by a single goal in 10 of their 11 league wins

Lecce chase needs a boost

Lecce saw off Brescia in midweek, but their gain was wiped out as Genoa secured three points in their victory against Sampdoria. The midweek fixtures have left them four points shy of safety with only three matches left to play. They’ll be hoping Genoa’s clash with Inter offers them an opportunity to cut the gap this weekend, but it’s not an easy round for the visitors.

They head to a Bologna side who need the points to fix their own problems, with the Rossoblu basing their strong campaign on picking off sides towards the bottom of the table. Will they continue that run when they face one of the league’s poorest travelling teams?

Can Bologna return to form?

Bologna have failed to win any of their last five matches, so a return to form is key for Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side. He tore into his team in the aftermath of their 5-1 humbling at AC Milan last weekend, which brought signs of a recovery in midweek in a narrow 1-0 loss to Serie A’s form side Atalanta. As they return home, could the Rossoblu claim a first victory at his ground since the restart?

In Bologna’s defence, they have met the likes of Juventus, Napoli and Sassuolo in their first four games at home since returning to action. Their only real letdown was a 1-1 draw with Cagliari, while back to back defeats at the hands of the two form sides in Italy aren’t much to be ashamed of. The hosts picked up a point at home to Napoli last time out, while their good record against the struggling sides should see them over the line here.

While the hosts have only claimed four home wins this season, two of those have come against teams in the bottom three. They’ve claimed five wins from five against the teams currently in the drop zone, so our predictions back the Rossoblu to claim the points in this clash.

Familiar failings could bite Bologna

While Bologna are worthy favourites here, they do have some issues. Their wait for a Serie A clean sheet has now reached 30 games. While Mihajlovic’s team have their strengths, they’ve been far too open at the back. They last kept a home clean sheet in their opening game of the season here, so we don’t have much faith in the hosts recording a shutout.

Lecce have scored 18 goals in 17 away trips, so we are backing them to find the net in this clash, but that’s not likely to be enough. The visitors have conceded twice or more in eight of their last nine away days, so our predictions here start with Bologna to win and both teams to score, having seen Lecce lose 10 of 17 away trips so far this season.

Three of Bologna’s home wins have finished 2-1, so we’re making that our correct score prediction for this clash. The Rossoblu have won by a single goal in all but one of their 11 league wins this term, including four of their five wins over the sides in the drop zone.
