Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Bologna and Sampdoria take on each other at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on day 27 of the current Serie A campaign. Bologna continue with their old habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. Following a 2-0 win over Lazio on home soil, the Rossoblu suffered back-to-back losses to Cagliari and Napoli on the road to drop to 12th position in the standings. Since all Dijks, Farago, Santander, Hickey, and Tomiyasu miss the game with injuries, home win should not be considered.
La Samp, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Cagliari in their last league match. Claudio Ranieri’s men are eager to put an end to their four-match winless run in the Italian elite division, but share of spoils is on the cards in Genoa. Colley is banned for the match, while Torregrossa is out of contention with a muscle injury.
Highlighted Player (Stefano Denswil):
Stefano Denswil is a product of Ajax football academy. The Dutch centre-back, who was born in Zaandam on May 7, 1993, scored one goal in 22 appearances in the Eredivisie for Ajax before joining Club Brugge in 2015.
