Bologna v Juventus Preview, Serie A, Friday 6th December 2013

Bologna head into this game on friday night having had a tough time of it so far this season which has seen them win just 2 games from 14 and as a result Stefano Pioli’s side currently occupy 17th position in the Serie A league table. A defeat in this game would probably see the club dragged into the relegation spots come monday morning as there is only 3pts seperating the bottom 5 clubs at the foot of the table.

Juventus continue to dominate their opposition and their 1-0 victory at home against Udinese over the weekend has now secured Antonio Conte’s side a 3pt lead at the top of the Serie A league table over nearest rivals Roma who continue to be the only club this season to have remained unbeaten and this should be business as usual for the visitors come friday night.

Bologna v Juventus Team News

Bologna Team News:

Jonathan Cristaldo (Fractured Hand) and Nicolo Cherubin (Navicular Bone Fracture) will both under take late fitness tests to see if they can be involved in this one. Frederik Sorensen will miss out though as he is suspended, but other than these players mentioned manager Stefano Pioli has a full squad to choose his starting line up from. 3-5-2 is the likely formation for the hosts which will see Diamanti and Cristaldo leading the attack up front with support from midfield being provided by Kone, Morleo, Perez, Krhin and Garics.

Midfielder Panagiotis Kone is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 4.

Juventus Team News:

Sebastian Giovinco, Simone Pepe, Mauricio Isla and Adrea Pirlo are all unavailable for the visitors as they continue to receive treatment for respective injury problems. 3-5-2 is the likely formation for the visitors which will see Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente leading the attack up front with support in behind coming from Padoin, De Ceglie, Vidal, Marchisio and Paul Pogba.

Striker Carlos Tevez is the clubs current top goalscorers this season with 7.

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

Bologna: W D L D D

Juventus: D W W W W

Juventus have a commanding advantage on the recent form statistics having won 4 of their last 5 games played. Bologna have only been defeated once in their last 5 games, but have only managed 1 victory as well.

Bologna v Juventus Match Betting Odds Market.

Bologna have only managed 2 victories from 14 matches played so far this season and going up against the current league leaders the online bookmakers don’t expect those stats to change with a current best price of 7/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) currently on offer.

The Draw would probably be the best result that Bologna could secure here and with Juventus without the services of Andrea Pirlo and having only managed an injury time winner against Udinese over the weekend the Draw might be worth a cover bet at odds of 17/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Juventus have won 12 of their 14 matches played this season and with the likes of Tevez and Llorente leading the attack up front they are expected to comfortably win this game on friday night with a current best price of 9/20 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) available for the visitors to make it win number 13.

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

Bologna will be desperate to get at least something from this game on friday night if they are to avoid becoming dragged into the relegation places over the weekend but I really can’t see them pulling off a shock victory here despite having home advantage as they just don’t seem to be scoring many goals this season.

Juventus are averaging over 2 goals per game in each of their previous 14 matches played so far and although they will be without Pirlo who pulls the strings in midfield, they still have a much stronger squad than their hosts and this should be another comfortable win for Antonio Conte’s side on friday night.

However, their current odds don’t exactly provide value and with the goal stats suggesting this game to see at least a couple of goals scored during the game betting markets like Juventus -1 Asian Handicap, Juventus Half Time/Full Time, Both Teams to Score No and Anytime Goalscorer look the places to concentrate on for this one.
