Our football match prediction:
Despite taking the lead in Sunday’s football game against Sampdoria, Benevento eventually suffered a loss to Marco Giampaolo’s troops at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. The newcomers failed to grab something from the opening match of the season and, no doubt, they will fight tooth and nail against Bologna in order to record their first ever win in the Serie A. Amato Ciciretti found the net in the 2-1 loss to La Samp and he will be one of the men to watch in the home team. Bologna, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Torino in their opener and seeing that the Rossoblu often struggle on the travels, they would be happy with one point from Sunday’s game. The two teams meet for the first time ever in the Italian elite division and we predict that fans will see a close encounter at Stadio Ciro Vigorito.
