Bologna – No time like the present to end Juve curse? 

More than a decade has whizzed by since ‘I Rossoblu’ last sampled that winning feeling against ‘The Old Lady’, losing each of the past ten encounters between the sides in Serie A. But could this miserable run be about to end? Sinisa Mihaljlovic’s men remain unpredictable at the best of times and have lost their last two in the league. However, the scalps of Lazio and Roma point to an outfit not averse to the occasional upset.

Both aforementioned victories were here at the Renato Dall’Ara where, unsurprisingly, Bologna invariably produce their stronger work. In actual fact, they have accumulated more points at home in 2021-22 (16 – W5 D1 L3) than the likes of Atalanta and Juventus, who have admittedly played one said fixture fewer. Keeping Juve at arms length is key, though, with all of their last four home wins accompanied by a clean sheet.

Key Stat: After four wins in five, Bologna host Juventus on the back of successive defeats to Fiorentina and Torino. These outcomes continued a theme which has seen each of their past six league matches settled by a single-goal margin (W3 L3).


Juventus Win To Nil



Juventus – Failure to make top-four becoming real possibility?

The most recent season in which the club finished outside of the top four in Serie A was 2010/11, on their return to the top tier following the infamous Calciopoli scandal that rocked Italian football. Going into round 18 of the 2021-22 term Juventus are eight points off fourth-place Napoli, and know three points are of the utmost importance this weekend. Fortunately is is Bologna at Renato Dall’Ara up next.

Juve scored four here last season, easing to a fifth consecutive away win in this fixture having remained unbeaten in Emilia-Romagna since 1998 (W14 D5). Last week’s draw in Venezia was clearly disappointing but did make it one loss in six league games (W4 L1). Coach Allegri has come in for scrutiny for some less than inspiring football. Although his team can claim to have scored in every away matche this season (W4 D3 L2).

Key Stat: Each of Juventus’ last six Serie A victories were ‘to nil’, as were three of the four achieved on the road this season. They have conceded just two goals across nine prior visits to Bologna in all competitions.

Bologna Vs Juventus Betting Advice

Roberto Orsolini’s late consolation in last season’s corresponding fixture denied Juventus a fifth straight clean sheet in all competitions away to Bologna. Nevertheless, the Old Lady has certainly done her fair share of singing, winning the last ten Serie A meetings. This includes the most recent five to have been held at the Renato Dall’Ara stadium, and by an overwhelming aggregate of 12-1 no less.


Bologna Vs Juventus – Key Facts:

  • Just four points separate Bologna in ninth (W7 D3 L7) to Juventus in seventh (W8 D4 L5) coming into the weekend’s contest at Renato Dall’Ara.
  • Bologna have beaten Lazio and Roma at home this season but lost to AC Milan, with their record overall at the Renato Dall’Ara still making for positive reading: W5 D1 L3.
  • It is one league defeat in six (W4 D1) for Juventus coming into this round. The Old Lady have scored in all nine away matches this season (W4 D3 L2), with three of four wins in these fixtures being ‘to nil’.


This is evidently a fixture Juventus thrive in, although most of those recent match-ups had the 26-time Italian champions as firm favourites to begin with. That isn’t quite the case on this occasion. Bologna’s last six encounters were settled by a single goal while Juventus aren’t exactly blowing many teams away this season, with the winning margin in all eight league victories being no greater than two goals (one goal five times).
