Bologna vs Fiorentina Prediction & Tips
Bologna are looking for their first win in the league against Fiorentina since February 2013, while the visitors want to get their first win away from home in Serie A (SA) this season.
The home side have lost eight of their last 10 games against Fiorentina in the SA (G1, E1, P8); in six of those matches he could not score and only one had more than one Bologna goal. The local cast has already won five league games without winning (E3, P1) and has won only two of their 12 matches in the SA this season (G2, E4, P6).
However, Bologna have won 70% of their points this season (seven of 10) at home. But he has the fourth worst defense (as a whole) playing in home condition since he averages 1.5 goals against per game.
Before the start of the day, Fiorentina are only two points away from the Top 6 of the standings, but they should be worried about their recent run of five SA matches without wins (E4, P1). The visiting team has averaged 1.5 goals scored per match and so far has the second best defense in the league with only 10 goals against.
However, Fiorentina remains one of four teams that still has not won away from home (E3, P3) and their last win in the SA as a visitor was in May. No team in the first division has scored fewer goals than Fiorentina as a visit (four), but only five casts have received less (seven) in that condition.
Players to watch: Federico Santander (BOL) has four goals and two assists in his last eight matches, while Jordan Veretout (FIO) has scored three goals in his last six league matches – all from the penalty spot.
Statistics to consider: Bologna have not scored before the break in nine of their last 10 games against Fiorentina.
Nine of the 12 matches of Fiorentina in the SA have produced less than 2.5 goals and five of them have finished with a 1-1 score.
However, four of Bologna’s last five matches in the SA have produced more than 2.5 goals and three of those matches ended 2-2.
The last time that Fiorentina did not win in more than five matches was in April 2016.
