Home advantage looks likely to shine through in this fixture. Bologna have picked up 24 of their 38 points at home (or 63%) while Udinese have collected only 14 of their 39 points (or 36%) on the road. So, while the Udine side have the better form we think they drop points here.

Bologna FC come into the match on a run of three league games undefeated. They have picked up six points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
I Rossoblu shared the points in their last league match away to Juventus Turin. Expected goals of 2.2 to 1.0 in favour of Juventus indicates Bologna were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point. Marko Arnautovic's second-half goal proved enough to secure a point for Bologna. It looked like it would actually win the game until Juve headed in a corner deep into injury time. Arnautovic now has 12 league goals this season for Bologna making him their top scorer. His absence due to suspension here will be felt. The final score of the match was 1-1.
Musa Barrow will be looked at to pick up the slack in terms of goals for Bologna. He has five goals in Serie A this season and is 3.6/1 to score against Udinese Calcio on Sunday.
Their opponent on Sunday, Udinese Calcio, come into the match having picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
The Little Zebras lost their last league match at home to US Salernitana. Expected goals of 1.1 to 0.5 in favour of Salernitana indicates perhaps it was a fair result. The Le Zebrette fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance with their side failing to create any big chances in the match. This left them open for a late sucker punch which came in the 92nd minute to leave them with nothing. The final score of the match was 0-1.
Udinese Calcio’s main forward Beto is also ruled out here. That means the burden of goals falls on Gerard Deulofeu who has eleven goals in Serie A already this season and is 3/1 to score against Bologna FC on Sunday.
