Competition: Serie A
Market: Bologna win
Odds: 8/11 @ Pribet
Looking to extend on their European charge on Sunday afternoon, Bologna will welcome Lecce to the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
Starting with the hosts, making a welcomed return to winning ways last week, Bologna are enjoying what has been a stunning Serie A charge this season. Eventually claiming an action-packed 4-2 victory at home against Sassuolo, Thiago Motta’s men have continued to receive a string of praise for the job that he has undertaken in Emilia-Romagna. Battling it out in the top-six chase and with their sights firmly set on punching a famous European ticket in 2024, the former Spezia boss certainly finds the mood in his camp at a red-hot high. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just three points adrift of breaking into the Champions League places, Bologna will also be excited by their continued purple patch on home soil. Including a stellar 2-0 victory against Italian icons Roma last month, Motta’s side are unbeaten in all of their previous 12 straight showdowns at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara – a run that stems all the ay back to August 21st.
As for the visitors, managing to make what was a stunning return to winning ways last weekend as they secured a 3-2 victory at home against Fiorentina, Lecce will be desperate to use that performance as a platform to build on. However, although Roberto D’Aversa’s men might hold a commanding six-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone, the Wolves have continued to gain a reputation for their glaring issues on the road. Last seen on their travels getting hit by a worrying 2-1 defeat against Genoa, Lecce have lost all of their previous four Serie A showdowns outside of Apulia by an aggregate score of 6-1. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Sunday’s guests have failed to win any of their 12 showdowns away from the Stadio Ettore Giardiniero so far this season. Facing what looks like a real challenge this weekend and falling to a 2-0 defeat when they travelled to Bologna last season, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
