Bologna v Chievo Preview, Serie A, Monday November 4th 2013

Bologna head into this game on monday night having had a very poor start to their new campaign which has seen Stefano Pioli’s side win just 2 of their opening 10 matches played and as result currently occupy 17th position in the league table.

If Bologna are to have any hope of remaining in the Italian Top Flight this season then it will be their home games that they will need to win and even at this early stage, victory on monday night is crucial if they are to start making their way back up the table.

Chievo have had an even worse start to their new campaign and have managed just 1 victory from their opening 10 matches played which currently has them sitting bottomof the Serie A league table and it seems that there real problem from their opening 10 games is being able to score goals as Giuseppe Sannino’s side are currently the joint lowest goalscorers in Serie A along with Catania with 7.

Unitl the problems of being able to score goals on a regular basis gets fixed it does seem that Chievo will continue to lose ground on other sides above them and at the moment already look destined for relegation down to Serie B come next May.

Bologna v Chievo Recent Form (Last 5 Games – Left to Right)

Bologna: L L L W W

Chievo: L L L L L

Bologna have a clear advantage on the recent statistics having won 2 of their last 5 matches played. Chievo have not managed to win any of their last 5 games and have lost them all.

Bologna v Chievo Match Betting Odds Market.

Bologna have not exactly been setting the world alight this season, but they have won their last two league matches and with home advantage and up against a side that is rooted at the bottom of the Serie A table it does not come as much of a surprise to see the online bookmakers having the hosts priced up as the clear favourites to win this game at a current best price of 23/20 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw has been a regular outcome when these two sides have met each other over the years, but more recent games has seen just 1 draw in the last 5 matches between the two and with Chievo having serious problems scoring goals the draw which is currently a best price of 12/5 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) doesn’t look a likely outcome for me.

Chievo have been extremely poor in their opening 10 matches and for me they are going to struggle to get off the bottom of the league table until they find players that can score goals in their side and although they did put up quite a decent fight against Roma last week, I still don’t see them winning this game and their current odds of 11/4 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) reflect their chances in this game.

Bologna v Chievo Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Bologna do seem to have turned a corner with their last two league matches having ended in victories and now with home advantage going up against the bottom of the league, they should make it three from three and for me are the clear pick for this game against a side that just can’t seem to score goals.

Chievo did put in a decent performance last week against current league leaders Roma in which they were narrowly beaten 0-1 at home, but although that result might of seen the players confidence increase slightly, I still don’t see it being enough to see them win this game and for me the best result the visitors could possibly achieve from this game would be a draw.

The goal stats suggest only 1 or 2 goals to be scored in this game, so betting markets like Under 2.5 Goals, Total Match Goals and Both Teams to Score NO could also offer some additional value, but for me the home win looks the one to be on here at decent odds.
