Tip Reasoning

  • Adjusted for points per game, only Inter have a better home record than Fiorentina in Serie A.
  • Bologna are winless in their last four on the road, their only point in that run coming at lowly Salernitana.
  • Sinisa Mihajlovic’s team have lost seven of their 13 Serie A away games, winning just three.

Can La Viola bounce back?

Fiorentina are on a three-match winless run, following up defeats to Sassuolo and Juventus with a draw against Verona, wrecking the momentum they built with an excellent three-game winning sequence. With Vincenzo Italiano’s men remaining in the hunt for a European spot, their clash with Bologna looks important ahead of an upcoming tough run of fixtures for the hosts.

Fiorentina do have the fifth-best points return at home in Serie A, but when adjusted for points per game, only Inter can better Fiorentina’s average return of two points per outing in Florence. Only Inter and Lazio, meanwhile, can beat the 31 goals plundered by Italiano’s men on home soil, meaning no team in Italy will relish a trip to the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

This could be especially true of Bologna, who have earned a reputation as poor travellers. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men have gone four without winning on the road, only earning so much as a point at rock-bottom Salernitana. Meanwhile, only five teams in the division have earned fewer points on their travels than Bologna, whose average of 1.92 goals conceded per away game is worse than all but three clubs.

Back Fiorentina to overcome poor travellers

Considering Fiorentina’s excellent home form, the dire travelling record of Bologna, and the fact that La Viola beat the same opponents 3-2 on away soil earlier this season, the hosts look worth backing for a victory on Sunday.

Only Lazio, Napoli, and Inter have won in Florence as away sides this term, with that reverse to Lazio being Fiorentina’s only loss in their last nine at home. Back La Viola for another home victory, while a 2-1 correct score bet could be prudent, with both teams netting in five of the hosts’ last eight.
