Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Renato Dall’Ara will host Sunday’s Serie A game between Bologna and Torino, the two mid-table sides. The Rossoblu aim to build on back-to-back wins over Lecce and Monza, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for Sinisa Mihajlovic’s troops. Since key attacker Marko Arnautovic should be fit for the match, we are positive that the hosts will find the net in the round 13.
Il Toro, on the other hand, proved their worth in victories over Udinese and AC Milan, and given their improvement up front, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. As for the away side, defender Ola Aina and forward Antonio Sanabria are out of contention with injuries. It has to be noted that both sides managed to find the net in four of their last five encounters in the Italian top flight.
