Bologna vs. Genoa Match Analysis and Prediction

After last week’s historical 1-0 triumph over Inter Milan at the Giuseppe Meanza, the relegation threated Bologna will be welcoming Genoa at their Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Sunday at 11.30GMT. The game presents them with a golden opportunity for redemption from the relegation zone by emerging victorious during this fixture. Last week’s victory plus their new coach, Sinisa Mihajlovic has brought new style and tactic into the struggling Bologna and is expected to make a turnaround of events henceforth. Bologna is likely to collect all the crucial three points.

Bologna has really been struggling throughout the season. However, they are going to tap into the tactical coaching skills of their new coach, Sinisa Mihajlovic to at least remain in the Serie A. Before last week’s win, under coach, Sinisa, Bologna had experienced a long winless spell that lasted more than five matches. At number 18, a win for them is a must if they need to avoid relegation and improve their position in Serie A.

Genoa with a mixed bag of equal wins, losses and draws in their last six matches is neither doing very well nor bad either. At number 13, they are looking forward to making it to the top ten. However, throughout the season, Genoa is seen to be a struggling team in their travels. Therefore they are likely to face an uphill task defeating Bologna with their changing fortunes.

Ironically, Sinisa Mihajlovic’s boys are looking forward to their first home triumph since September 2018 against Udinese. Maybe Sinisa Mihajlovic was the savior they have been waiting for to help them register a home win. However, it is wrong to play down Genoa, as they fortunes seem to be improving after collecting 4 points from their last two fixtures against Empoli and Sassuolo. However, Cesare Prandelli’s troops’ return home empty-handed will not be in vain. They will give Bologna a run for their win.
