Interesting action in Serie A takes place on Sunday, as two sides in the battle for a European spot this term will lock horns. Fiorentina will have home field advantage as they look to end a three-game losing run, while Bologna will look to continue their excellent run of form.
Serie A Preview
Two sides that could have a role to play in the battle for European spots in Serie A this term will lock horns on Sunday. Bologna couldn’t come into this fixture in much better form, as they have gone five without defeat in the Italian top flight. A second straight win this weekend could take them level on points with fourth-placed Napoli.
Bologna have been very challenging to beat throughout this season, as they have suffered a joint-Serie A low of just a single defeat. They have won twice in their last three matches, which includes a fine success last weekend against Lazio. Lewis Ferguson was the match-winner in that fixture, as he netted in the first minute of the second half.
Fiorentina likely wouldn’t be too disappointed with their position in the standings, but their recent form would be a worry. The Italian side comes into this fixture after losing each of their previous three, meaning that they have now won just five of their opening eleven. That run of form leaves them sitting eighth in the standings.
However, a return to winning ways will take them above their Serie A rivals before the international break. But, they will need to show more in the final third than they did in their previous match, as they were edged out by Juventus. Fiorentina lacked quality in the final third of that match, as they hit the target on just four occasions from 25 shots.
Fiorentina vs Bologna Head to Head
Bologna have won each of their previous two matches against Fiorentina, which includes a 2-1 success in this exact fixture last term. The two recent defeats are the only losses that Fiorentina have suffered against Bologna in 18 Serie A encounters.
Fiorentina vs Bologna Prediction
The fact that Fiorentina are in European action in midweek could be a challenging factor to overlook when assessing this fixture. Therefore, it could be worth siding with the visiting side landing maximum points for a third straight time against Fiorentina.
