Roma vs Bologna Match Preview
Roma are right in the thick of the fight for a Champions League place again next season and can boost their prospects with a comfortable win against Bologna.
The Giallorossi reached the Champions League semi-finals last term, losing to Liverpool, and are on course for the last eight this time around after claiming a 2-1 first-leg lead at home to Porto in the round-of-16.
They will want to continue that successful run in 2019-20 and Eusebio di Francesco’s side are involved in what looks to be a five-way scrap for the third and fourth finishing positions in Serie A along with the two Milan clubs, Atalanta and Lazio.
Apart from an uncharacteristic 7-1 drubbing away to Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia, Roma have been in strong form recently and taken 14 points from the last 18 available in the league.
Bologna also have plenty to play for because they are battling against relegation, going into the weekend just above the drop zone by the narrowest of margins on goal difference.
Sinisa Mihajlovic recently returned as manager for a second spell and is unbeaten so far, including an excellent victory away to Inter Milan, but on balance the sensible bet here is to side with the superior team who are in perfectly good form themselves and that is Roma.
