Match Date: 19 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Juventus Stadium

 

Sporting an 8-point lead against its closest title rival, AS Roma, Juventus is on the verge of securing its 3rd Scudetto. Winning over the Bologna is crucial for securing 3 points is more than enough to safeguard them from the capital club’s threats. But while this sounds good news to Juve, the upcoming match might force Bologna to settle in the relegation zone.

 

Definitely, Juventus is the ultimate online betting favorite of the match. Despite its recent loss to Napoli, this does not erase the fact that its current performances have been very strong. This is most especially true when it comes to the result of their home encounters.

 

The Bianconeris were successful in its last 16 matches at Juventus stadium. Playing at home has also witnessed them score an average of 2 goals in their 13 matches, thus, giving more problems to Bologna’s defence strategy and to make the matter worse, Juventus 7 clean sheets show a high possibility of preventing Bologna from executing its attacking schemes.

 

Bologna is just a notch away from the relegation zone and evidently, this match might put them in very compromising situations.

 

On a closer look, it can be seen that the club’s present form is barely at par with that of Juventus. The former has only won once in its last 6 matches. Most of them ended in losses and draws.

 

But then again, despite taking the minnow’s role, Bologna promises to fight tooth and nail in order to retain its Serie A status.

 

Prediction: Juventus
