Bologna hosts Udinese in round 25 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Saturday, February 22nd at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara (Bologna)
Bologna is holding a rather good season - now the team is on the 10th line in the Serie A standings, lagging only two points behind the Euro cup zone. The main problem of the Red-Blues is a crowded infirmary - there are as many as six names on the list of injured players, but the most important thing is the loss of Roberto Soriano. In the last round, the men of Sinisa Mihajlovic lost to Genoa at home (0-3), but the Griffins have recently added very seriously, so it’s not worth scolding the hosts very much. It’s clear that Bologna is not going to lose for the second time in a row, so the Red-Blues will run to attack from the very first minutes. But Udinese can punish for it, and head-to-head matches with the Zebras are a little bit hard for Mihajlovic’s team this season. Bologna will probably score its goal, but it will be very difficult to keep a clean sheet.

Udinese is holding far from the most successful season - now the team is on the 15th position in the Italian Serie A standings, being ahead of the relegation zone by only four points. After a streak of four defeats in a row, the Zebras finally managed to score points - they tied with Brescia and Verona, and the Mastiffs are in the Euro cup zone now. I can’t but note the fact that away matches are rather difficult for Udinese (eight defeats in 12 meetings), and the Zebras concede an average of two goals per visit, so they surely won’t manage to keep a clean sheet in the upcoming match. But they will probably score at least once.
It seems to me that it is worth betting on a scoring game. After the home defeat to Genoa, Bologna is likely to be set up only for the attack, and Udinese, I am sure, will find its chances in counterattacks. Besides, head-to-head matches of these teams have been very productive in recent years. I bet that both teams will manage to score!
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
