Our football match prediction:
Sunday’s football game at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara pits together Bologna and Torino. The Rossoblu experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Cittadella in the Italian Cup at the weekend and, no doubt, they are desperate to get back on course. Bologna were producing fine performances at home ground last season and that is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Torino. Experienced tactician Roberto Donadoni is still in charge of the team and it remains to be seen if he is going to help the team secure yet another top flight survival. Il Toro impressed in a 7-1 win over Trapani at the weekend (Coppa Italia) and it is more than obvious that duo Ljajic – Belotti is going to play a key role in Sinisa Mihajlovic’s team in the 2017/2018 Serie A campaign. Seeing that Sunday’s game will be played at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils on day 1.
