Bologna welcomes Sampdoria in a game that has front and central two teams that have nothing more to lose. Having avoided relegation, they all play to prove that they belong in Serie A, and hopefully much higher than the current position they’re on. Bet365 always comes with some of the best odds for Serie A games, including the one we’re previewing.
Sampdoria surprisingly lost to Palermo, a team which is already relegated and had never recorded an away victory this season. Palermo opened the score, only to see themselves being leveled before the break. So now there’s the question: what did Palermo’s manager told his team to make them wake from slumber and win a match nobody counted on them to? Sampdoria counted on nothing in the second half, and Palermo could have scored a lot more than 2 goals, but Romero caught everything.
Bologna comes from a draw with Torino, in a game they could easily win, but wasted so many opportunities and have nobody to blame, but themselves. They started the game on a more expansive level, especially in the midfield, but Torino was way too good in the defensive area, and Bologna managed to wear them out only close to the ending of said game. Thinking they already covered all grounds, Bologna relaxed, and Bianchi was the one who upset them with a goal in literally the last seconds of the game.
Their last encounter ended with Sampdoria’s win 1-0, but seeing as both teams have something to prove to their “tifosi”, it remains to be seen which one will be more successful. The game is scheduled for 14:00, GMT+1, and I’m hoping Bologna recovers and manages to win; so I’ll go with 5 units at 2.20, with odds from bet365.
