A busy weekend of Serie A action includes all 20 teams and these Fiorentina vs. Bologna predictions form part of the schedule. Both sides are currently well set in mid-table, with Fiorentina in 12th and visitors Bologna in 9th.
Fiorentina vs. Bologna odds
1 – Bologna to win – 39/10
2 – Bologna under 2.5 total goals – 1/20
3 – Total goals scored under 2.5 – 13/17
4 – Both teams not to score – 20/21
5 – Bologna to win 2-0 – 26/1
A battle between two mid-table sides is unlikely to grab too much attention on the Serie A calendar this weekend, but Bologna are looking to push on up the table.
Thiago Motta’s side are slight favourites to win this one, based on picking up seven points in their last three league outings, after losing twice at the start of 2023.
Hosts Fiorentina are yet to really hit a run of consistency at the start of the year, with just one league victory racked up in their last three matches. That gives Bologna an edge that could see them ease towards the European qualification places before the end of the weekend.
As part of a solid streak of results, Bologna have relied on narrow wins to boost their form, scoring five in their last three matches at a rate of less than two scored per game. They have only managed to score more than twice in a league game on one occasion so far this season and that does not look like changing here.
In their five league games since the start of 2023, only two have featured over 2.5 total goals scored by both sides across 90 minutes, with only one of Fiorentina’s five amassing over 2.5 in total.
Fiorentina have only scored once in their last three matches and Bologna will be confident of holding them at bay after conceding just once from open play in their own last three league fixtures.
A victory for Bologna is likely to lift them up at least one place in the Serie A table this weekend. With the top six already establishing a gap between themselves and the rest, Bologna will be banking on seventh place giving them an outside chance of Europe.
