Bologna and Parma will face each other on Monday night in the match that will close the 2nd round of Serie A. Both teams lost the debut match with the same score 2-0, but I expect the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara to offend the meeting offensively in search of the first stagoinal success.
The team prepared by Sinisa Mihajlovic started in the new season with a failure on the field of AC Milan, which prevailed in front of it with the score of 2-0, Zlatan Ibrahimovic signing a double.
However, he had important opportunities in the second half of the match, but without fruit.
Through this result, the black series from the last championship continued, reaching that in the last 9 games to tick only one success, 3 draws and 5 defeats being the other results. Gary Mendel is recovering from an injury and can play in the center of the midfield with Jerdy Schouten.
Bologna have conceded a goal each time in their last 18 home matches I can boast of this performance.
Despite the 3 victories obtained at the end of the previous championship, he missed the chance to take the place of the Europa League, until these results he had registered a series of 7 games in which he had 6 defeats and a draw.
This summer, coach Roberto D’Aversa changed, being replaced by the former Lecce coach Fabio Liverani, it remains to be seen if he will have the expected effect.
He will have to quickly fix his defense problems, his team has 15 consecutive games with a goal conceded, thus equaling his own record as of 2015. Probable and Absent Teams.
