Match preview

The Purple welcome Bologna FC to the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Sunday for this Serie A match. Five of the last seven matches between these sides have ended in a stalemate suggesting today’s match could be a closely contested one.

ACF Fiorentina come into the match on a run of two home league games undefeated. They have picked up eight points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

Gigliati shared the points in their last league match at home to Hellas Verona. Expected goals of 1.5 to 1.0 in favour of Fiorentina indicates they probably deserved more than a point from the match.

It was Krzysztof Piatek's third league goal since joining the club in January that proved enough to secure a point for Fiorentina in the end. Piatek is 2.3/1 to get on the scoresheet again here.

Nikola Milenkovic committed a foul in the box just moments after Piatek’s 9th-minute opener handing Verona a big chance from the penalty spot which they converted to make the final score of the match was 1-1.

Their opponent on Sunday, Bologna FC, come into the match on a run of four away league games without a win. They have picked up six points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

The Greyhounds’ last league match, at home to Torino FC, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 0.8 to 0.2 in favour of Torino indicates Bologna were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point.

The I Veltri fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance with their side failing to create any big chances in the match. Their only shot on target in the match came from teenage Scottish left-back Aaron Hickey 15 minutes from time.

Marko Arnautovic is ruled out due to COVID-19. Therefore, Gambian international Musa Barrow is expected to be Bologna FC’s main goal thread and is the 3.75/1 favourite to score against ACF Fiorentina on Sunday.
