Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Bologna will look to put an end to their five-game winless run when they take on Bologna on day 6 of the new Serie A campaign. The Rossoblu are desperate to record their first win of the process, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Fiorentina. A man to watch in the home team will be Marko Arnautovic, who scored a brace in a 2-2 draw with Spezia, while Sinisa Mihajlovic has no fresh injury worries.
The Viola, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Juventus at the weekend. Fiorentina failed to win the previous four league fixtures, and seeing that they will go for a victory in Sunday’s showdown as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Nico Gonzalez is pushing for a start, while all Nikola Milenkovic, Alfred Duncan, and Gaetano Castrovilli continue to miss out through injuries for the visiting side.
