Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Genoa will be aiming to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Sassuolo when they take on Bologna at their Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. Genoa remain in the relegation zone, but a win over Bologna could see them move away from the bottom three. Goldaniga is banned for the hosts, while all Zapata, Cassata, Parigini, Pandev, Biraschi, and Pellegrini are all sidelined with injuries. Bologna, on the other hand, have drawn each of their previous five league fixtures.
Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men were on the verge of beating Udinese in their last league match, but the Zebrette eventually scored a late equalizer in the dying minutes of the match. Svanberg is out of contention through suspension, while Sansone, Santander, Mbaye, Skorupski, De Silvestri, and Medel remain in the recovery room. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as both sides will go for a win in Saturday’s clash.
