Our recommended bet for Saturday’s clash at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara comes in the form of a Bologna victory, by two goals to nil.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £110 with 888Sport.
Two sides in the midst of altogether concerning campaigns to date will go toe-to-toe at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Saturday, October 8th.
This comes as relegation-battling Bologna prepare to play host to a Sampdoria outfit in complete disarray.
Starting with the former, Bologna, after a timely uptick in form over the early weeks of September, have since been brought crashing back down to earth once more.
A 1-0 defeat at the hands of Empoli was followed by a 3-0 drubbing at a Juventus side struggling on all fronts in their return to action post-international break, leaving the Rossoblu just a point clear of the relegation zone with eight games on the board.
New boss Thiago Motta will be hopeful of star man Marko Arnautovic, whose scintillating opening to the term has since been followed by blanks in each of his last four appearances on all fronts, leading the charge to get Bologna back on track and moving up the table this weekend.
And what better opportunity to turning things around than a meeting with bottom of the table Sampdoria?
After battling against the drop throughout the 2021/22 campaign, Samp, over the early weeks and months of the new season, have done little to suggest that things will prove any different this time round.
The Blucerchiati currently sit dead bottom of the Serie A table, having pieced together just two points from an available 24.
On the back of a frankly inexcusable 3-0 defeat at home to Monza in their own return to the pitch this past weekend, it therefore came as little surprise to hear of head coach Marco Giampaolo being relieved of his duties:
With incoming replacement Dejan Stankovic not expected to be appointed in time to take his place in the dugout at the Dall’Ara, we at 101 therefore expect Bologna to add to Sampdoria’s woes on Saturday, by means of a return to winning ways.
