Bologna vs Catania by Mrgol
1) home factor: in spite to be only 14th on table, at home Bologna lost only one time, and has an home defence that suffered only 8 goals, same goals of Roma or Napoli.
On the contrary Catania with three point less, remain the worst away team in championship, with 0-4-7 7/19.
2) state of form: Bologna - in spite of internal and financial troubles and penalty - is desperatly trying to avoid relegation, and his trend is better then anyone could think seeing his position in table: since midlle of november, they lost only against the three first teams in table, Milan, Napoli and Inter.
In the same period, the best result of Catania - considering the strenght of the opponent - was the draw at Rome against Lazio. in teh same period, only one match won against Brescia and other two draws
3) absences and tiredness: Bologna has no problems with absences and could be a little advantaged by the fact that they don't played in last weekend, but only in midweek, the match against Roma was postponed.
On the contrary Catania played in weekend against milan - suffering two goals at home after that Milan remained in ten men - and in midweek away in Cesena, so this is the second consecutive away match in few days.
Plus, Catania remains with many problems of players unavailable: Bellusci (def. 6atts+3), Izco (midf. 10atts+5), Capuano (def. 15atts), Biagianti (midf. 13atts.), Carboni(midf. 12atts+4)remain all out, while Alvarez(def. 10atts +3) probably will play also if not fully fit. New acquisition, striker bergessio has not received transfer, yet, so he will be not available for this match.
For all these reasons i think that Bologna wil win this match.
