Bologna 2-1 Verona

⚽ Both Teams to Score prediction

Yes

Bologna continue to impress under impressive coach Thiago Motta and their win at Lazio last weekend was their fourth Serie A victory on the spin. A fifth win on the trot could be in the offing when they host poor travellers Verona.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Bologna odds on favourites

  • HOME: 3/5 (1.60) – 62.5%
  • DRAW: 13/5 (3.60) – 27.8%
  • AWAY: 5/1 (6.00) – 16.7%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Bologna have been playing like genuine top-four contenders of late and the hosts should have enough class to win again when they take on a Verona side that has lost nine times in 13 away tussles this term.

Joshua Zirkzee is an outstanding talent – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Joshua Zirkzee

Joshua Zirkzee scored again for Bologna at the weekend and the young Dutch striker needs just one more strike to reach double figures for the campaign in Serie A.

Zirkzee can make the difference

22-year-old former Bayern Munich starlet Zirkzee scored the crucial winning goal when Bologna beat Lazio 2-1 last time out and the promising forward should have a kick in his step on Friday after his influential input.
