Prediction on game
On January 23, Renato Dall'Ara (Bologna) will host the match of the 19th round of the Serie A, in which Bologna will compete with Cremonese. The battle will start at 18:30 CET.
The club replaced its coach after the very start of the new season. The decision of the management to fire Siniša Mihajlović may raise ethical debate. At the same time, the higher mentioned move gave a good impetus to “the Red and Blues”, which, to be frank, had stalled. Thiago Motta needed time to get used to the new position. Nowadays, the Brazilian Italian meets the requirements. The winter part of the season began with a couple of defeats, but, to tell the truth, the team lost minimally to strong opponents: an away 0-1 defeat in the match with Roma and a 1-2 score in the home struggle against Atalanta. Nevertheless, the club took 3 points in the away match, when there was a simpler opponent, Udinese. In Friuli, the score was opened by Beto, who is the leader of “the Little Zebras”. But that fact did not stop Bologna – after the break, Sansone and Posch scored their goals, which resulted in a strong-willed 2-1 comeback of the guests.
The team has recently replaced the coach. There were no victories in the championship under the rule of having appeared in the summer Alvini, after the departure of Pecchia, who had led this team to the Serie A after a long pause. It goes without saying that the draws had been taken pretty often, but they gave too few points to hope for survival in the Calcio. The irony is that the current coach, Davide Ballardini, started with a 2-2 score. But the higher mentioned result was a real success, because the outsider knocked Napoli out of the Coppa Italia in this way – in the 87th minute, Afena-Gyan made the 2-2 score, which the team managed to defend in extra time, having only ten men, and then won the penalty shootout. Still, that happened in the cup tournament, and does not affect the chances for salvation in the elite division of Italy. There, having achieved only 7 points, the newcomer has already “dropped” to the last place in the standings.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The clubs met each other in 2 seasons – 1989/1990 and 2005/2006. There were 3 draws and one victory of Cremonese.
Bookmakers believe that it’s high time for Bologna to win its first head-to-head match. Let’s agree with them and bet that more experienced hosts will win (odd: 1.98).
