Tip Reasoning

  • Roma have failed to win any of their last three matches, recording two draws and one defeat.
  • Bologna, meanwhile, are unbeaten in five Serie A matches despite facing each of Juventus, Inter, and Milan during that run.
  • The Giallorossi may have one eye on next week’s Europa Conference League clash with Leicester with a top-four finish looking unlikely.
  • Bologna defeated Roma 1-0 in December’s return fixture.

Europe the focus for Mourinho’s men as top-four hopes fade

Jose Mourinho’s Roma sit eight points behind fourth-placed Juventus with just four games remaining in Serie A, and a 1-1 away draw with Leicester City in the first leg of their Europa Conference League semi-final may mean the Giallorossi’s focus is fixed firmly on Europe, a dangerous prospect ahead of a meeting with Bologna, who have a penchant for springing a surprise.

Indeed, the visitors have gone five matches unbeaten in Serie A (three wins, two draws) despite facing three of the division’s top-four sides. Having earned excellent away draws at Milan and Juventus, Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men recovered from 1-0 down to deal a blow to Inter’s title hopes with a 2-1 win on Wednesday, solidifying their mid-table position.

Roma, meanwhile, have gone three matches without winning, picking up one point from difficult away fixtures at Napoli and Inter before drawing with the Foxes on Thursday. Although Mourinho’s men still have work to do to secure a Europa League spot and have Serie A’s fourth-best home record this term after taking 34 points from 17 home matches, their 1-0 defeat at Bologna earlier this season demonstrates they are not immune to the visitors’ love of a giant-killing.

Bologna could snatch a result as Roma eyes turn to Thursday

With the narrative around Mourinho’s first season in Rome largely revolving around winning the club’s first trophy since 2008, the Giallorossi could be vulnerable between their two semi-final clashes with the Foxes.

Taking into account Bologna’s series of excellent results against Serie A’s leading lights, the visitors could be worth backing as a double chance tip, having drawn five of their last nine games. Meanwhile, both teams have scored in each of the last three games played by both sides, so a 1-1 draw could be a decent correct score prediction.
