Bologna

Bologna are a modest club in Italy, but they are doing extremely well this season. Under head coach Thiago Motta, I Rossoblu have defied the odds and are likely to end up above the likes of Juventus, AS Roma, Lazio and Fiorentina in the Serie A table this season.

I Veltri are third in the Serie A table at the moment with 67 points from 36 matches, level on points with former Italian champions Juventus. Bologna have already booked their place in the UEFA Champions League next season.

Bologna will head into the Serie A match against Juventus this weekend on the back of a 2-0 victory over Napoli away from home in the league. It came after a goalless draw with Torino on the road in Serie A which followed a 1-1 draw with Udinese in front of their fans in the league.

Bologna are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Juventus. Federico Ravaglia is likely to be in goal and will have Stefan Posch, Jhon Lucumi, Riccardo Calafiori and Victor Kristiansen in front of him in defence. Michel Aebischer and Remo Freuler will be the two holding midfielders. Jens Odgaard, Kacper Urbanski and Dan Ndoye will be the three attacking midfielders. Joshua Zirkzee will lead the line for Bologna.

Juventus

Juventus are one of the biggest clubs in the world and are a giant of European football, but they have not had the best of times in Serie A this season. Expected to at least challenge for the Scudetto this campaign, the Bianconeri may not even fourth.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side are fourth in the Serie A table at the moment with 67 points from 36 matches. Juventus are level on points with Bologna, who are currently third in the standings. Atalanta are fifth with 63 points from 35 games. Juventus have already qualified for the UEFA Champions League next season.

Team News:

Juventus are likely to line up in a 3-5-2 formation against Bologna. Wojciech Szczesny will be in goal for the Bianconeri and will have Federico Gatti, Bremer and Daniele Rugani in front of him in defence. Weston McKennie, Manuel Locatelli and Adrien Rabiot will be the three midfielders. Andrea Cambiaso and Filip Kostic will play out wide, with Dusan Vlahovic and Moise Kean the two centre-forwards.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Bologna have won 2 of their last 6 Serie A matches.

Conclusion

Bologna have been superb this season and have ben the surprise package this campaign. Juventus have been disappointing, and it is hard to see the former Italian champions get anything from the match at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
