Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Renato Dall’Ara will host Sunday’s Serie A game between Bologna and Roma. The Rossoblu aim to put an end to their five-game winless run and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the capital club. Fit-again Austria forward Marko Arnautovic is pushing for a start, while Roberto Soriano remains in the recovery room alongside Nicola Sansone and Georgios Kyriakopoulos.
The Romans, on the other hand, failed to win the previous four league matches. Jose Mourinho’s troops are eager to keep their Champions League hopes alive and we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from the round 35 game. Zeki Celik is back from suspension, while fellow defender Marash Kumbulla has yet to overcome a knee injury. Keep in mind, though, that the Giallorossi will be with one eye on the Europa League encounter with Bayer Leverkusen.
Highlighted Player (Andrea Belotti):
Andrea Belotti began his youth career at Grumellese at the age of 10 and after spending three years at the club, he joined Albinolefe in 2006.
