Why Bet on Roma?

Roma is in full recovery and is very close to the fourth place, which would give them the certainty of participating in the next Champions League. The team from the capital city has just won the Roman derby 1-0 with a goal by Gianluca Mancini, thus maintaining its fifth place. They are also motivated after eliminating Milan and qualifying for the Europa League semifinals. 

La Lupa has 55 points, four behind its rival, but there is something to keep in mind: it has a game in hand, so winning that match and now against Bologna would allow them to climb to the top. Roma has seven encounters without losing in Serie A, so the arrival of Daniele De Rossi after José Mourinho has served as a boost for this team to perform as expected. 

On the other hand, the Romans are a good home side, having 11 wins, three draws, and two defeats. It has three victories in a row at the Olímpico. Also noteworthy is the role of Argentine striker Paulo Dybala in the team, as he has 12 goals and eight assists. He has two assists in the last three games. 

De Rossi has no injuries or suspensions for this match. 

Why Bet on Bologna?

Bologna’s performance has been extremely meritorious. It had already shown last season that it had the quality to be in the top half of the table, but now it is qualifying for the next Champions League. However, this team is coming from a goalless draw with Monza, which left the points difference over the Romans at only four. That is why I Rossoblù is obliged not to lose, as it has a game more than its opponent for this weekend. 

Bologna has five unbeaten away matches, beating Empoli, Atalanta, and Lazio while drawing with Frosinone and Milan. This team’s defensive role is their best asset, as evidenced by the fact that they have only allowed 25 goals. But their offense also knows when to strike, with 45 goals. Their best scorers are Dutchman Joshua Zirkzee and Italian Riccardo Orsolini, both with ten goals. 

Defender Adama Soumaoro, midfielder Lewis Ferguson, and winger Jens Odgaard are out due to injury. 

Final Betting Analysis: Roma vs. Bologna

Bologna is one of the surprises of Serie A, and this season, they already beat La Lupa 2-0, with goals from Nikola Moro and Rasmus Kristensen (against). However, the last time they played in the Italian capital, Roma won 1-0.

The numbers at Gambyl Exchange have Roma as the favorite. Their Moneyline shows 2.32, Bologna has 3.48, and the draw is at 3.365.
