Bologna vs Spal Match Preview
Neither of these two teams could gain a victory on the opening day of the Serie A season, and that is what they would have been aiming for. Spal were beaten at home to Atalanta while Bologna were held by newly promoted Hellas Verona. They will both be looking to put that right here, in a game that both will feel they can win.
Bologna are not a team to score or concede many goals and we saw that from them last weekend in their 1-1 draw. They play the typical Italian way, and we expect them to turn this into a tight game, just like we have seen when these two teams have played in the past.
Spal do like to play a more expansive game, and that is what they were involved in last weekend, although they did end up on the wrong side of a 3-2 score line. The game will be much tighter this weekend for them, and their chances of success all hinge on how many times they can find time and space to trouble the Bologna defence, who will be doing all they can to keep this a tight one.
We think Bologna can do that, and that will frustrate Spal. We can see Bologna nicking a goal somewhere in this game and while it will be a tight one, we fancy Bologna to pick up the win. We don’t envisage many goals at all, just like we have seen when these two have met in the past, so under 2.5 goals is another bet we will be placing.
