Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Bologna and Atalanta go head to head at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Saturday’s program. The Rossoblu have been producing fine performances of late, with the team beating all Torino, Salernitana, and AS Roma, while sharing the spoils with Lecce. Both Jesper Karlsson and Adama Soumaoro are out of contention with injuries, while Riccardo Orsolini should recover in time to face the Orobici.
Atalanta, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Salernitana 4-1 on Monday evening, with the team moving closer to the Champions League berth. Given the Orobici’s attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. Defender Rafael Toloi is a major doubt, while all Gianluca Scamacca, Jose Luis Palamino, and El Bilal Toure miss out with injuries, speaking of the visiting side.
