Juventus v Bologna Preview, Serie A, Saturday 19th April 2014

With just five games of the season remaining, Juventus can move a step closer to defending their Serie A title on saturday evening at the Juventus Arena when they play host to struggling Bologna.

Juventus head into this game having so far recorded a 100% record at the Juventus Arena this season in the league where they have played 16 and won 16 along with scoring an impressive 42 goals and conceding just 9 and with those sort of statistics it really is going to take a miracle for struggling Bologna to come away with anything from this game in their bid to avoid relegation as they currently languish just one place above the bottom three sides in the table in 17th position.

Juventus v Bologna Team News

Juventus Team News:

The hosts have pretty much a full squad for this game with the only confirmed absentee being midfielder Simone Pepe who is currently out injured, however also missing will be both Stephan Lichtsteiner and Leonardo Bonucci as they serve a suspension.

Other than these three players though, manager Antonio Conte has a full squad to choose his starting lineup from which is likely to include the formidable strike partnership of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorent who between them have scored 32 goals between them this season.

Bologna Team News:

Bologna manager Davide Ballardini also have a strong squad to choose his starting lineup from with the only absentee being midfielder Francesco Della Rocca who is currently out injured. The Bologna strike force have struggled to score goals this season with Alessandro Diamanti and Panagiotis Kone both sharing the top goal scoring spot for their club with 5 each.

Juventus v Bologna Head to Head Statistics

Saturday evening’s game from the Juventus Arena will become just the 33rd meeting between the two clubs over the years. Juventus have pretty much dominated these matches having won 22 times overall with 11 coming at the Juventus Arena.

Bologna have struggled and have managed to secure just 2 victories with 1 of those coming at the Juventus Arena which came on the 26th February 2011.

The head to head statistics table below shows us the previous 5 matches played between the two clubs and as we can see Juventus have had by far the better of it having managed to remain unbeaten and win 4 times.

45 of those Goals have been scored in the 16 matches played between the two clubs at the Juventus Arena, which generates us an average goals per game statistic of 2.81.

The statistics above seems to suggest that this game will see between 2 or 3 goals scored on saturday evening.

Juventus v Bologna Match Betting Odds Market.

Juventus are the clear odds on favourites to win this match on saturday evening in front of their home fans and it should not come as much of a surprise to see the online bookmakers only offering up a best price of 1/6 with Bet365 (£200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers) as they have won every game at the Juventus Arena this season in the league.

The Draw has not been a result that has happened much when these two clubs have met each other in the past and I don’t really see it happening in this game, not with the record that Juventus have at home this season, but the current best odds of 6/1 with Coral (Deposit £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets) could be big enough to attract some interest from the punters.

Bologna could see themselves move closer to the relegation places if they don’t pick up at least a point from this game, but with their strike force having struggled in front of goal this season it’s difficult to see them pulling off what would be a major shock victory here and their current best price of 20/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) does reflect their chances to be honest, which are very slim to none.

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

Difficult to see this game ending up in anything but a comfortable victory for Juventus here as although Bologna are desperate for points to avoid the relegation places, I just don’t see anything in their squad that can cause this strong Juventus team any problems.

Juventus can move another step closer to securing back to back Serie A title’s with a victory on saturday night in front of their fans and with the club having an excellent record at home this season and still yet to drop any points from their previous 16 matches played at the Juventus Arena, it really could come as a bit of a shock to see Bologna spoiling the party.

The average goal statistics are suggesting this game could see between 2 or 3 goals scored on saturday evening and with all of the previous five meetings between these two clubs having seen 2 or 3 goals scored, this does look the stand out bet for this game and is certainly going down as my main banker.

My saver is going to be Llorente to Score 2 or More Goals as he does seem to save his best performances in games played at the Juventus Arena and is generous odds to do so with Bet365.
