Bologna – Torino Predictions and Preview
- In their final game before the international break, Bologna suffered their first Serie A (SA) defeat since the opening day against Fiorentina. There’s still plenty of reason to be positive for the Rossoblu however, as they sit just two points adrift of the European places ahead of this round, while only top-two Inter and Juventus have conceded fewer than their measly ten goals after 12 rounds.
- Playing at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara should inspire hope that their positive start can continue, as Bologna have won five of their last six matches on home soil (D1). That sequence saw Motta’s men win three consecutive league matches on their own turf and also keep four clean sheets – a total that could be added to as Torino visit next – a side that Bologna have conceded fewer than two goals against in seven of the last eight SA H2Hs.
- The international break came at a poor time for Torino, who finally looked to be finding some form after piecing together a three-match unbeaten streak (W2, D1). That run has brought them to within touching distance of the SA top-half, and another victory would mark a special slice of history for Ivan Jurić’s men, as they would become just the eighth team to aggregate 3000 SA points.
- That will require the Maroons to win an away SA H2H for the first time since April 2016, although five draws across seven such games since shows these meetings are often tight. Torino will have to guard against concentration and energy levels slipping, as they’ve alarmingly seen each of the last six goals they’ve conceded on the road arrive in the second half of matches.
- Players to watch: Joshua Zirkzee is hitting his stride for Bologna, directly contributing to four goals across his last five SA matches (G3, A1). Looking to match him could be Ivan Ilić, who scored Torino’s last league goal in the 1-1 draw with Monza, which was also the score in his last personal H2H visit last season when he was a Verona player.
- Hot stat: Eight of the last 11 SA H2Hs saw exactly one first-half goal scored, six times by Torino.
