Our football match prediction:
Bologna have been having their ups and downs of late. Following a thrilling 3-0 win at Pescara, Bologna were beaten by Juventus in Turin on Matchday 19, but the team returned to winning ways at the weekend. The Rossoblu recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Crotone at Stadio Ezio Scida, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Sunday’s football game against Torino. Bologna failed to score in previous two home games in the league and that is the main reason why we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. Torino, on the other hand, have been struggling on the travels this season and it has to be noted that Sinisa Mihajlovic’s troops recorded only one win in previous six away games in the league. A close encounter appears on the cards and we predict that Bologna and Torino are going to share the spoils at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Sunday.
