Giallorossi’s third setback in a row was sealed with the 2-4 defeat at Sassuolo Calcio. After finishing in the quarter-finals of Coppa Italia, “La Lupa” only scored one of six possible points in league operations.
AS Roma vs Bologna Betting Predictions and Odds
No wonder that the desired return to the Champions League is stalled. Atalanta Bergamo now holds fourth place in the current Serie A table. The Romans are all the more condemned to victory at home against the Rossoblù.
In fact, at AS Roma against Bologna, the bookmakers’ odds also clearly move in the direction of the Giallorossi, which go into this pioneering league game without momentum. In addition, Lorenzo Pellegrini flew against Sassuolo and is missing today.
In addition, the Veltri come to the state capital with two wins in a row in their luggage and are in a good mood, which is an important factor for the prediction at AS Roma against Bologna. Bologna have not lost eight of their last ten games and have scored at least two of their own goals seven times during this period.
Not only the away goal at “La Lupa”, but also the point win in the Olympic Stadium in Roma is therefore quite realistic. We therefore play the tip “X2 & BTS” at AS Roma against Bologna and combine it with the double chance X2 with “Both teams to score/ Yes”.
AS Roma – Statistics & current form
AS Roma is currently at a crossroads in a difficult season. Last summer, the Giallorossi, who were still to be found in the Champions League semi-final in 2018, missed the renewed qualification for the premier class as sixth in the final table.
A change was needed for which Paulo Fonseca was a promising coaching talent, and who also fulfilled some wishes in terms of team planning. Once the Romans made slow progress, “La Lupa” was back on track by the end of 2019 at the latest.
“La Magica” had 13 out of 15 possible points from the last five league games in November and December, thus consolidating fourth place. Only to experience a desperate start to 2020 when the home game against Torino FC was lost 0-2.
In connection with the 1: 2 defeat against Juventus and the recent 1: 1 draw against Lazio Roma, the Fonseca squad only got one of nine possible points from the last three home games. In general, in 2020, a tripartite came in only at the relegation-threatening club Genoa CFC.
After the 13 out of 15 possible points for the 2019 financial statements, only four out of 15 possible points from the next five league games will be recorded in 2020. In addition, the end of the quarter-finals of Coppa Italia.
Most recently, the Giallorossi even received a 2: 4 swatter at Sassuolo Calcio, where they not only lost 0: 3 after just 26 minutes, but also lost Lorenzo Pellegrini with a yellow-red card a good 20 minutes before the end of the game. The 23-year-old is absent today and increases worries in midfield, where Nicolò Zaniolo and Amadou Diawara are missing.
Nevertheless, at AS Roma against Bologna, the bookmakers’ odds in the direction of “La Magica” turn out, although consequently there can be no question of momentum. In addition, the home record after the three winless games in a row in front of their own fans is also no longer yellow.
Only five of the eleven league games in the Olympic Stadium in Rome have won the Giallorossi this season and have already conceded 16 goals at home. So there is definitely a chance for a winning outsider tip.

Bologna – Statistics & current form
Bologna FC’s 2020 calendar reads much better. Rossoblù scored eight out of 15 possible points in the new year, winning two games in a row.
If the two victories are added at the end of the year, the result is even more impressive with 14 out of 21 possible points. In other words and numbers: only two of the last ten games have lost the Veltri.
This is sometimes due to the fact that the offensive of the football club from Emilia-Romagna recently stuck very reliably. Not only has Juventus loan Riccardo Orsolini scored four goals in his last six games for Bologna, but the Rossoblù have also scored a total of at least two goals in seven of their last ten league games.
That certainly speaks for placing a tip for another point in the struggled Giallorossi at AS Roma against Bologna, although Sinisa Mihajlovic’s team does not travel to the Italian capital without any worries.
Not only are five players injured with Mitchell Dijks, Gary Medel, Nicola Sansone, Ladislav Krejci and Federico Santander. Bologna also had a yellow card last weekend with a 2-1 home win over Brescia with consequences. Andrea Poli picked up the fifth warning and is now absent from the Rome Olympic Stadium.
Six regular players, so it has to be compensated, which is a little more difficult for a comparatively much thinner club than for other clubs. In view of their recent momentum, the Veltri are unlikely to arrive.
The away balance is also correct. Bologna FC are ninth in the Serie A away table and have lost only five of the eleven games in foreign positions. The danger of scoring in the distance is particularly positive. The Rossoblù have already scored 17 goals away.

To make matters worse, “La Lupa” only scored a single point from the last three home games and has to do without the playmaker Lorenzo Pellegrini, although it should also be noted that the guests also lack several regular players.
