Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Bologna will be aiming to build on a thrilling win over Inter when they welcome Sassuolo at their Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Matchday 31. The Rossoblu came from behind to beat the Nerazzurri in Milano, with the team reviving their Europa League hopes. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men regained a much-needed confidence and they are likely to go for a win in the midweek clash against Sassuolo.
Even though midfielder Roberto Soriano misses the game through suspension, we predict that the hosts are going to find the net in Wednesday’s football match. The Neroverdi, on the other hand, have been scoring goals for fun in the Serie A of late, with the team netting 13 goals in total in the previous four league fixtures. Given Sassuolo’s attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score.
