Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sunday’s football match at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara pits together Bologna and Sassuolo, the two teams who are almost level on points ahead of Matchday 9. The Rossoblu have been struggling in front of goal of late and it has to be noted that they scored no more than two goals in previous three league fixtures. Bologna are eager to put an end to their three-game winless run in Serie A and it remains to be seen if they are capable of recording their fourth home win of the season. Roberto Donadoni’s men were beaten by Genoa in their match at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, but the Rossoblu are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Sunday’s football match against Sassuolo. The Neroverdi are on a three-game losing run on the road, with the team conceding nine goals in those encounters and considering that tired legs (Europa League) should prove to be the biggest problem for the visitors this time out, home win appears on the cards.
