Bologna are firing on all cylinders right now, and are showing no sign of slowing down in their quest to break into the Serie A top four. They've been excellent, and begin the weekend in 5th place, playing on Friday night with a chance to put the pressure on those around them. Their visitors are Verona, and this isn't just a game for the top. as Verona begin the weekend in the relegation zone, but any point from this game would be enough to take them outside, before the others play.Bologna Form Guide
Inside the tip 5, and four points better than 6th placed Roma, this has been a really good run for Bologna, and they deserve everything they're getting at the moment. They arrive here on the back of winning their last four league games, and are showing no signs at all of slowing down their pursuit of Atalanta.
They won 2-1 last Sunday, a big win too, winning away from home against Lazio, who are not too far below them in the standings. That came a few days after a big home win over Fiorentina, another team not too far below them, with Lecce and Sasssuolo the other two teams they've beaten recently.Verona Form Guide
Verona are managing to find the odd point here and there with draws, that's not yet been enough to lift them out of the relegation zone, but it may be this weekend, results elsewhere depending. They've drawn three of their last four games, so that's three points in that period, compared to just one for the three teams that are around them.
They drew with Juventus last weekend, and Monza before that. Their other draw came against Frosinone and the defeat in the middle was a narrow 2-1 loss away from home against Napoli, so it has been a pretty good run all things considered, they just need a little more to push and get out of danger.Match Prediction
Bologna are playing some really great football at the moment, and I'll take them to win this game. They're going along nicely, need the points, and despite Verona drawing some games, I'll take the home side to come out on top.
