Roma Prediction

Roma registered an important 2-1 win over Portuguese side Porto during the week in the first leg of the round of 16 in the Europa League as they made the most of home advantage in the opening leg of the tie.

The hosts are also unbeaten in their last six matches in Serie A which includes recent wins over Sassuolo, Parma, Torino and Chievo on the domestic front, and their recent 7-1 mauling at the hands of Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia has become a thing of the past.

Home form has also been decent as their record of 6-4-1 28/17 indicates, as well as putting together a six match unbeaten run on home soil. The goals have been flying in at the Stadio Olimpico this season as the hosts are tied as joint highest goalscorers at home in Serie A along with the top two clubs, Juventus and Napoli.

The hosts have scored 2 or more goals in 9 of their 11 home matches to date while forwards El Shaarawy (8 goals) and Dzeko (5 goals) have provided the bulk of the goals for the hosts so far this season.

 

Key-Facts – Roma v Bologna

  • Roma are unbeaten in their last 6 matches at home in Serie A
  • Roma have scored 2 goals or more in 9 of their 11 home matches
  • Bologna have managed just 1 win from their last 22 away matches

 

Bologna Prediction

Bologna are dangerously perched just above the relegation zone but level on points with third from bottom club Empoli as they make their way over to face high-flying and free-scoring Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

The visitors have managed to gain just one league win from their last 16 matches overall in Serie A which was a shock 1-0 win away at Inter Milan, but aside from that rare success, it’s been a pretty miserable campaign for the visitors this season.

That win at Inter Milan was Bologna’s only win on their travels so far this season in what has been a pretty ordinary record away form home this term with stats of 1-5-6 10/19, and as well as failing to score in 5 of their 12 away matches to date, the bigger picture shows us that the visitors have recorded just one away win from their last 22 matches on their travels which is a woeful sequence of results indeed.

The first goal may therefore be crucial in this clash, and if Bologna don’t get it, then they could be in for a very long evening at the Stadio Olimpico.

Betting Tips Verdict

In-form Roma should simply possess too much firepower for Bologna here.
