Competition: Serie A
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/5 @ BetUS
In what could prove to be a lively affair from the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Sunday afternoon, Napoli will travel to Bologna for their penultimate Series A showdown.
Starting with the hosts, managing to make what was a thumping return to winning ways last weekend, Bologna will be desperate to spring a major Serie A upset on Sunday afternoon. Last seen claiming a 5-1 romp away at Cremonese, Thiago Motta’s men are now hoping to find some welcomed stability over the final fortnight. However, while the Greyhounds might still find themselves sat in pole position to claim an eye-catching top-half finish this season, the former Genoa boss has seen his side muster just a single domestic win from any of their last seven straight appearances – a run that stems back to a 2-0 victory against Atalanta on April 8th. Opening May with a nightmare performance as they suffered a 3-1 drumming at the hands of Empoli, Bologna have gained a reputation for their lively outcomes. It should be highlighted, Motta’s men have seen six of their previous seven Serie A showdowns finish with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, making Serie A history as they stormed their way to a first domestic crown since 1990 this season, Napoli are riding what has been a famous wave of momentum. Last seen making an immediate return to winning ways as they secured a stellar 3-1 victory at home against Champions League finalists Inter Milan, the one-time Lazio boss has seen his side gain a string of plaudits from their free-scoring performances in the final third. Claiming an action-packed 3-2 victory when they welcomed Bologna to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona for their reverse Serie A meeting on October 16th, Napoli should be excited by a rampant record against Sunday’s hosts. In fact, Spalletti’s side have won each of their last five straight meetings against the top-half contenders – a run that stems back to a 1-1 draw back in July 2020. In a contest that could prove to be a lively affair from the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, we are backing both teams to find the net.
