Bologna plays host to Napoli, as the latter once again hits the road in match week 22 of the Serie A 2021-22 season.
Napoli had a great start to the season and won 10 out of its first 11 games. In fact, the team faced its first defeat only in the latter half of November, at the hands of Inter Milan. The team has stuttered a bit since then. In the last 6 games, the Azzurri have lost 3 and won just 2. The team also recently crashed out of the Coppa Italia after a thrilling 5-2 loss against Fiorentina. This dip in form has reflected on the points table too, and the team is now in third place with 43 points and a good 6 points behind the toppers Inter Milan. A win in this game will help extend the slender two points lead it has over 4th placed Atalanta.
Bologna is at 12th place, with 9 losses and 8 wins from the 20 games it has played so far. A favorable result from this game will help the Rossoblu jump several places, and break into the top half of the points table. This however seems unlikely, aa Bologna has seen a big dip in form, having lost 4 out of the last 5 league games.
Match prediction and betting tips for Bologna F. C. vs SSC Napoli Serie A 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, Bologna on the 17th of January 2022.
Bologna boss Mihajlovic is likely to field a 3-5-2 formation for this game and does not face many problems going into this game. On the other hand, Luciano Spaletti, who will most probably go with a 4-3-2-1 formation, is likely to have a long list of injured players. These include Lorenzo Insigne, David Ospina, Victor Osimhen, and Adam Ounas, who will most likely sit out.
In spite of this depleted squad, we believe that Napoli has enough strength to overcome any threats that the hosts might throw at them. We expect the game to be a low-scoring one, and Napoli may also be able to keep a clean sheet.
Bet on Napoli to win.
Bologna has been in poor form and its defense is one of the major reasons why it is losing matches. With Napoli looking to close the gap to the leaders, you can expect it to play an aggressive line. These two teams played twice in 2021 and Napoli scored three goals alone on both occasions. We think the odds being offered for this betting market are quite fair and worth a punt.
