Bologna vs Parma (By: Stanioooo)
3 rounds before the end of Serie A in Italy there will be a meeting between two teams with small chances of relegation, but still they have to finish the work till theoretically save themselves for the new season.
If you look at the table, a point for both teams will look almost excellent as they will have 3 and 4 points advantage of Empoli, the last team in the relegation zone with chances of survival and that's with only 2 rounds left. BUT when you see the matches they have in the last rounds- Bologna have to visit Lazio and then to host Napoli, while Parma will have to host Fiorentina in a match where taking at least a point is more than possible as Fio are in miserable form and also to visit Roma. You see their schedules are more than awful, but Empoli's one is not easier- home game against Torino and away game against Inter. Still the team is in progressive form, very stable at home beating even Napoli+ a win against Sampdoria in the last round as visitors and I expect them to surprise us at least one time in these two games, why not even with a win.
To sum up, the teams behind Bologna- Udinese, Genoa and Empoli are more than capable for me to take a win in one of their remaining games, so a draw against Parma at home could turn from a strategy for both clubs into a catastrophe in the end. Parma have one point advantage of Bologna and a home game against Fio in the next round, so a draw against Bologna would be perfect for them to keep the advantage. What I strongly believe is that Bologna will not play for the draw in the game, but only for the win.
Bologna look totally different after Sinisa Mihajlovic took the course in the club replacing Pippo Inzaghi. They have 5 wins in a row at home with 13:2 goal difference in all of them. Against them is a team with 5 straight draws in the last rounds, so it will be interesting to see which run will have an end here.
Both teams have their problems before the beginning of the game- Bologna are without the suspended Dijks(defender), Poli(midfielder) and Sansone(forward)+ the injured Mattiello(defender), while the visitors are without the suspended Barilla(midfielder) and Kucka(midfielder)+ the injured Biabiany(midfielder), Diakhate(midfielder) and Schiappacase(forward).
Bologna for me have the better coach and with him, this team started to reveal their real potential. Under Pippo Inzaghi, this team would be relegated at the end of the season for sure, but Mihajlovic changed the situation drastically. I am sure he won't go with his team tomorrow looking for the draw, but only for the max points before the last hard tasks they have against Lazio and Napoli. A home win is what I expect here!
