Team Form

 

Hellas Verona

With just a point short of qualifying in the European competition, Hellas Verona continue to grow as one of the most prolific clubs in Italy’s top-flight league.

 

After securing a narrow victory against Livorno, the club catapulted to the 6th spot of the Serie A table, trailing Inter behind by a mere point in the race for a Europa League slot.

 

Hellas Verona’s strength is evident. Compared to other newly promoted squads, the club has been successful in surviving the intense competition in the league. A concrete example of their threatening pitch presence was the manner in which they dominated Livorno. After the first half the club was already ahead by three (3) goals. Their penchant for scoring makes them the ultimate favorite to win the match against Bologna.

 

Unfortunately, Hellas Verona shall be missing Toni Luca in the said encounter. Luca is serving a one-match ban after incurring his second yellow card during the Livorno match.

 

Bologna

Bologna just came off from a narrow defeat against the capital club, Roma. As a result, the club endures a major slip in their rank, which brought them closer to the relegation zone.

 

With the above-mentioned defeat, there is no doubt that the club’s chances of survival are getting slimmer. The said event was their second consecutive loss within their last six (6) matches.

 

Although disappointed by the result of their previous performance, Mikael Antonsson encouraged his teammates to perceive their upcoming matches as their final stint in the top-flight league. This approach might draw some inspiration and probably, translate to a better team form.

 

Prediction: Hellas Verona

Making it this far in the competition is a definite advantage for Hellas Verona. Certainly, they shall not let go of the opportunity to appear in the European competition and ensure a strong finish this season.
