Genoa vs. Bologna Predictions & Betting Tips

by | May 17, 2022 15:52

The final weekend of the Serie A season features a string of dead rubbers and these Genoa vs. Bologna predictions fall into that category. Genoa’s relegation to Serie B has already been confirmed, whereas Bologna are safe in mid-table.

Genoa vs. Bologna odds

1 – Genoa to win – 6/4

2 – Under 2.5 total goals – 11/10

3 – Genoa under 2.5 total goals – 1/5

4 – BTTS – No – 6/4

5 – Genoa to win 1-0 – 9/1

Genoa wrap up their stay in Serie A with a home tie against Bologna this weekend, after seeing their relegation already sealed. Their head-to-head record against 17th-placed Salernitana makes a final day rescue act impossible, as Davide Nicola’s side battle with Cagliari to avoid the drop.

However, despite having nothing being on the line on the final day, Genoa head into the game in relatively strong form, after successive home wins against Cagliari and Juventus in recent weeks. That gives them an edge over visitors Bologna, who have managed just one win in their last six league outings, and no away wins in 2022.

The lack of pressure should benefit Genoa and their better form tips the balance in favour of signing off from 2021-22 with a victory in front of their home fans. But with both sides not exactly setting the world alight in 2022, goals have been an issue, with Genoa netting three goals in their last five games and Bologna finding the back of the net seven times in nine games on the road in 2022.

Within that statistic, just two of Genoa’s last five matches have featured 2.5+ total goals scored inside 90 minutes of action with just two of their nine home games in 2022 racking up more than two goals scored in total.

The home supporters are unlikely to be treated to a free-flowing encounter at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, but on the back of a poor season at the club, a win on the last day will offer a minor comfort as they bring down the curtain on 15 seasons of top-flight football in the city.
