Tip Reasoning

  • Spezia have Serie A’s worst defensive record, conceding 31 goals in 13 games.
  • Siniša Mihajlović’s Bologna have conceded 15 goals in just 6 Serie A away games.
  • Bologna’s only away win came at struggling Sampdoria, while Spezia have only picked up results against bottom-half opposition.

Bologna Impressing, but are Vulnerable on Their Travels

Bologna sit just inside the top half of Serie A after making a promising start to the season. Their form has been far better when playing in front of their own fans, however; Mihajlovic’s team have won 4 of 7 home games, but their only away win came at struggling Sampdoria three weeks ago.

On Sunday, they travel to a Spezia team who have conceded a massive 31 goals in 13 Serie A games this season, but sit 2 points clear of the relegation zone. Spezia took the lead at high-flying Atalanta last weekend before being hammered 5-2, and have also suffered thrashings by Verona, Fiorentina and Lazio this term.

Having said that, Bologna have themselves conceded 15 times in 6 away trips, which have included a 6-1 thrashing by Inter and a 4-2 defeat at Empoli. With neither team able to stop conceding goals, over 2.5 goals looks a strong play for this meeting.

Goal Markets Look Good

While Bologna should have too much for their hosts on Sunday, they’re not to be trusted after a 1-0 home defeat to Venezia last time out. I’m backing over 2.5 goals for Sunday’s fixture, but if pushed, would go for 2-1 Bologna as a correct score prediction, with Spezia having lost every time they’ve faced top half opposition this season.
