Salernitana take on the visitors Bologna in the round 27 match of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Saturday, February 18th at Stadio Arechi (Salerno).
After a long series of defeats in the championship, which ended in losses to Verona (0-1) and Lazio (0-2), Salernitana have been recording points for three rounds in a row. First, they defeated Monza (3-0), then drew with Sampdoria (0-0) and even Milan (1-1). Four out of these five matches have the common feature of having the under 2.5 goals bet hit. I think it will be the same in the next match involving Salernitana. It seems that Paulo Sousa's players have improved their defense. However, the team still lacks a formidable attack.

Bologna's performance this season is only slightly better than their opponent's. Recently, the team has struggled to score goals. However, they can play reliably in defense. The only match in the last five games in which Bologna scored more than two goals was their victory over Sampdoria (2-1). In the other four games, the under 2.5 goals bet was a safe bet: defeats to Monza and Torino with the same score of 0-1, a victory over Inter with a score of 1-0, and a goalless draw with Lazio.
It is a difficult match to predict in terms of outcome. As for me, it is a match that can end in any of the three possible results. However, I expect there to be few goals in this match. Therefore, I will place a bet on the under 2.5 goals bet. Both Bologna and Salernitana have only hit the over 2.5 goals bet once in the last five rounds of the championship. In the first round of this season, the teams drew (1-1). The most recent personal meeting between the opponents on Salernitana's field also ended with the same score and under 2.5 goals. Honestly, I am not confident that either the hosts or the guests will score, and it is unlikely that these teams will score three goals between them.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
