Bologna vs SPAL 2013 Match Prediction

By William Hall

Inform Bologna welcome a struggling SPAL to Stadio Renato Dall'Ara this weekend in Serie A. Bologna look as if they have started to turn their season around after two straight wins in Serie A which both came away from home. Not the same can be said for SPAL who are without a win, losing four in that time. After a bright start for the side, they have dropped off massively but did manage to pick up a point last time out at home to Crotone. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

With Bologna coming into this game off the back of two straight wins in the league they will be full of confidence and feel they can undo a SPAL side who have been unable to win a game in their last five. Bologna have failed to win a home game so far this season, and SPAL have not been able to win away for home so for one of these teams, they could get rid of very unwanted record this weekend. 35-year-old striker Rodrigo Palacio is still banging in the goals in Serie A with two to his name already this season. At the moment he looks like he is the sides biggest threat even if many people are saying the Argentine is past his sell-by date. With both teams struggling to score too many goals this season I can't see this being a goal fest this weekend. Here are my favourite betting tips and predictions for the game.

Under 2.5 goals - 4/7

Bologna to win - 8/11

Bologna have conceeded only 2 goals in their last 2 games against SPAL 2013

SPAL 2013 saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

SPAL 2013 have conceeded only 2 goals in their last 2 games against Bologna

Bologna Preview

Bologna come into this game off the back of two straight wins in Serie A away to both Sassuolo and Genoa. With confidence high within the squad at the moment, they will feel this is the perfect game to go out and make it three wins on the bounce. A lack of goals for the side has stopped them progressing further this season, but defensively Bologna have been pretty solid, conceding just seven in seven. That's the best record in the league from 6th position downwards which is a big bonus for the side. If they can keep this record up but start to score a few more at the other end, they could be a strong side in the league. Although the side have picked up back to back away wins coming into this one, they are yet to have a win on the board on home soil with two draws and a loss.

Bologna Team News

Cesar Falletti (ankle injury) and Ladislav Krejci (broken nose) are both back in training for Bologna this week and could make an apperance in the game but Domenico Maitta (broken rib), Ibrahima Mbaye (heart problems), Mattia Destro (thigh injury), Cheick Keita (groin injury) and Federico Di Francesco (muscle injury) all look as if they will miss the match.

SPAL 2013 Preview

SPAL had an excellent start to the season drawing away at Lazio before beating Udinese at home. However, since they have been unable to win a game losing four and drawing the one. This has quickly seen them drop down the Serie A table which is a huge worry for the club. However, three of those defeats have come against the likes of Inter Milan, AC Milan and Napoli which are games they would have been expected to come out second best. If they are to stay up come the end of the season they must win the games against teams around them in the league and with Bologna only recently picking up points; this is one of those games. Unlike their opponents this weekend, it is the number of goals they concede which is causing the major problem for the team having already seen 12 beat them in just seven games.

SPAL 2013 Team News

SPAL will be without four players this weekend wih Marios Oikonomou (thigh injury), Sergio Floccari (thigh injury), Alex Meret (groin injury), and Marco Borriello (thigh injury) all sidelined.
