Both Bologna and Sassuolo will be looking to bounce back to winning ways in Serie A when they lock horns at Renato Dall’Ara Stadium in their Matchday 37 tie on Sunday afternoon with kickoff at 13:30.
Both Bologna and Sassuolo have made inconsistent campaigns this season that’s why they both sit around the middle of the table with Bologna sitting 13th on 43 points from 36 games while Sassuolo sit 11th on 47 points from same amount of games.
With two games remaining to go both sides still have a chance to finish in the top half as Bologna are only four points adrift of 10th-placed Torino, while Sassuolo are level on points with the II Toro. Therefore both will head into the tie all guns blazing for the three points.
They however, have both been struggling for form lately with the Rossoblu winning just one of their last five Serie A matches, picking up three draws and are coming off a 4-3 defeat to Venezia last time out, while the Neroverdi have only one of their last six league matches suffering four defeats in the run and are coming off 1-1 draw with Udinese.
We expect a close encounter although Bologna will be more confident since they are in a slightly better form than Sassuolo and the Rossoblu claimed a 3-0 victory at away in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
