Today's Predictions for Cremonese vs Bologna

Cremonese have claimed seven points from the last nine on offer on home soil ahead of their tussle with Bologna on Saturday. Read our top Cremonese vs Bologna predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Cremonese Double Chance

Cremonese’s loss to Juventus last week pushed them to the brink of relegation and anything other than a win at home to Bologna on Saturday could confirm their impending drop down the divisions. However, the hosts have shown enough fight at home to suggest they can prolong that wait a little. Cremonese have pocketed seven points from the last nine on offer and they might have enough steel to avoid defeat against a Bologna side that has lost two and drawn one of their last three away assignments.

Both Teams to Score

We close our football betting tips today with a plunge into the goals markets and we’re tipping BTTS to land for the second time in as many meetings between the teams this season. Both teams rattled the net in six of Bologna’s last eight away games while five of Cremonese’s last nine tests in the division have also featured action at both ends. With those records considered, our second Cremonese vs Bologna prediction backs both teams to get in on the act again.

Cremonese vs Bologna Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Cremonese vs Bologna lineups and team news for Saturday’s encounter below.

Cremonese

Bologna could be without forwards Cyriel Dessers and Frank Tsadjout though Charles Pickel is free to be involved again following the end of his brief suspension. Cremonese are six points shy of safety with just three games left to contest in Serie A and they have it all to do to stay up.

Predicted Lineup for Cremonese: Carnesecchi – Pickel, Vasquez, Lochoshvili, Valeri – Castagnetti, Meite, Sernicola, Galdames Okereke – Ciofani

Bologna

Midfielder Roberto Soriano is a confirmed absentee this weekend respectively, while Nicola Sansone is doubtful in attack. Defender Giorgos Kiriakopoulos has a virus and might miss out while Adama Soumaoro faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines. Nicola Sansone could return to the fold, though Jhon Lucumi is out of action.

Predicted Lineup for Bologna: Skorupski – De Silvestri, Bonifazi, Sosa, Cambiaso – Dominguez, Schouten – Orsolini, Ferguson, Barrow, Arnautovic

Player to Watch – Marco Carnesecchi

Marco Carnesecchi has been one of Cremonese’s most consistent performers this season and the relegation favourites will need their keeper to be in tip-top form again this weekend if they are to snatch a crucial victory over Bologna. The 22-year-old should earn a summer move if Cremonese do go down.
