All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Bologna v Torino are shown below including the latest game odds.
Bologna won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 4-0 Serie A loss in their previous game against Fiorentina.
In that game, Bologna managed 54% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Fiorentina had 14 attempts on goal with 7 of them on target. Federico Chiesa (48', 54', 89') and Nikola Milenković (74') scored for Fiorentina.
Matches featuring Bologna have often been entertaining ones recently with a lot of goalmouth action anticipated. Over their past six clashes, the sum of 22 goals have flown in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.67 goals per game) with 7 of them coming from Rossoblu. Such a trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, though.
Going into this one, Bologna haven't been defeated in their previous 2 home league matches.
After a losing effort in their last game against Roma in Serie A competition, Torino and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that match, Torino managed 51% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 4 on target. For Torino, the scorers were Berenguer (14') and Wilfried Singo (65'). Roma had 15 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Edin Džeko (16'), Chris Smalling (23') and Amadou Diawara (61') scored for Roma.
The numbers tell their own story, and Torino have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 10 goals in total. At the back, Il Toro have seen their frailties exposed.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Torino:
- have not beaten Bologna when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
- are undefeated by Bologna when they've played them away from home in the last 2 matches in the league.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 9 matches in the league. Who knows how long it might last, too.
