Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Following a 2-0 loss to Juventus, Cremonese will look to give fans something to cheer about when they face Bologna on Saturday afternoon. The relegation strugglers face a must-win situation against the Rossoblu and they have no other option but to leave their hearts on the field. Switzerland midfielder Charles Pickel is back from suspension, while both Cyriel Dessers and Frank Tsadjout are major doubts.
Bologna, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the table, with the team failing to win the previous six league matches. The Rossoblu head into the season finale with the lack of motivation, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the home team. All Soriano, Sansone, Soumaoro, Kyriakopoulos, and Lucumi are out of contention, speaking of the visiting side. In their last home game in the Italian top flight Cremonese defeated Spezia 2-0.
