Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Juventus will look to build on a 2-1 win over Cagliari when they host Bologna to their Allianz Stadium on Matchday 33. The Bianconeri are eager to keep their Scudetto hopes alive, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Sinisa Mihajlovic’s troops. January signing Dusan Vlahovic, who scored the winner at the weekend, will be the man to watch in the home team, while Alvaro Morata is back from suspension.
The likes of Chiesa, Locatelli, Kaio Jorge, and Mckennie should miss out with injuries. The Rossoblu, on the other hand, did well to beat Sampdoria 2-0 on Monday, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Turin. Since Bologna have little to play for in the season finale, punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on Massimiliano Allegri’s troops. Both Kingsley and De Silvestri are sidelined with injuries, speaking of the away side.
