Our football match prediction:
Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia will host Saturday’s football match between Atalanta and Bologna. Atalanta played out a 1-1 draw with Roma at Stadio Olimpico at the weekend and they are on a four-game unbeaten run in the league ahead of the visit of Bologna. The Orobici are sitting in the Europa League berth in the Serie A standings, but seeing that they are only two points clear of sixth-placed Milan, the hosts are likely to go all guns blazing at Bologna in Saturday’s game. The Rossoblu have little to play for in the season finale and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to spoil Atalanta’s party at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. In previous two meetings between the two teams the Orobici emerged triumphant and we predict that they will extend their winning run in matches against Bologna in the Italian top flight.
