Bologna vs Torino: Football Whispers' Predictions
Just three places and 4pts separate 12th-placed Bologna from their guests on Sunday, 9th-placed Torino, in the Serie A table. Both sides have won their last three games in league and cup so we're expecting a close and competitive 90-minutes at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara.
Over 2.5 Goals
With both teams in good form and looking positive going forward of late, we're expecting at least three goals to be scored in Sunday's clash. Three of Bologna's last six outings in all competitions and four of Torino's last six matches in league and cups have ended with over 2.5 goals being scored. Torino claimed the only win between these two sides last season, running out 2-1 winners at home.
Both Teams to Score
There is a good chance that we will be treated to goals at both ends of the pitch when Bologna hosts Torino as four of the duo's last five meetings in Serie A have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard. Both teams have also scored in three of Bologna's last five outings as well as in four of Torino's last five league games, adding further weight to our second prediction for Sunday's match.
All you need to know about Bologna vs Torino
Torino haven't lost against Bologna in the last six league meetings
Bologna made the trip to Monza last time out where a tight and tense opening 45-minutes ended goalless. Monza took the lead in the 57th-minute via a Petagna penalty but Bologna responded really well and were level on the hour mark through Ferguson. From this point on there only looked like being one winner and Orsolini fired home for Bologna with 17-minutes left on the clock to win the game for the visitors.
Bologna Predicted Lineup – Skorupski, Soumaoro, Posch, Lucumí, Cambiaso, Medel, Ferguson, Aebischer, Domínguez, Zirkzee & Barrow
Torino weren't expected to do much at home to AC Milan last weekend but a solid first-half showing proved enough for the underdogs to secure all 3pts. Djidji opened the scoring in the 35th-minute and Torino found themselves two goals to the good just 2-minutes later when Miranchuk scored after good work from Vlasic. AC Milan did pull a goal back in the second forty-five but Torino held firm to claim an impressive victory.
Torino Predicted Lineup – Milinković-Savić, Djidji, Lazaro, Schuurs, Buongiorno, Singo, Lukić, Miranchuk, Vlašić, Ricci & Pellegri
Bologna: Marko Arnautovic, Jerdy Schouten, Kevin Bonifazi and Denso Kasius are all doubts to face Torino.
Torino: Antonio Sanabria and Ola Aina are the two main injury concerns for the visitors this weekend.
