A huge match at the bottom of the Serie A standings takes place this weekend, as Cremonese face a must-win clash against Bologna. Their relegation to the second tier could be confirmed this weekend if they aren’t able to pick up maximum points.
Serie A Preview
A lot of credit must be given to Cremonese to have given themselves a chance of surviving in Serie A this term. However, their battle to remain in the top flight comes down to this weekend, as they must claim maximum points against Bologna to at least take their fight to the penultimate round of matches. At present, they sit six points from safety, which means a defeat for them coupled with Spezia or Hellas Verona picking up a point would mean that they would be relegated.
Cremonese’s fight-back in Serie A appears to have taken a knock in recent weeks, as they have landed just one victory over their previous five. Over that period, they have been held to two draws. Last weekend, they outlasted by Juventus on the road, as the Old Lady scored twice in the second half to score maximum points.
Bologna will be battling for the strongest possible finishing position over the final weeks of the season, as they currently sit eleventh overall. A victory on the road this weekend could move them up to eighth, which would be a remarkable finishing position if they are able to achieve it.
However, they don’t come into this fixture in good form, as they have gone five without a win, and they have been held to three draws in their previous four matches. Their most recent draw came at home against AS Roma. Bologna managed three shots on target in that clash, but neither side did enough to merit winning maximum points.
Cremonese vs Bologna Head to Head
There has only been one previous meeting between these sides in recent history. That was played out in January, as the points were shared following a 1-1 draw.
Cremonese vs Bologna Prediction
The progression of both of these sides this season has been halted by draws, and that could be a common trend that may continue this weekend. Both sides offer very little threat in the final third, meaning that we can see under 2.5 goals being scored, with the most likely result being a draw.
