The Italian series champion Juventus had spent just over € 250 million on the transfer market for new staff last summer. This is not only about three times as much as the added market value of the entire Bologna squad, but first and foremost an attempt by Italy’s actually heavily indebted figurehead to finally bring the Henkel pot to the Alpine ruling state once again. After a sobering 0-2 draw at Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League 2018/19 knockout round, this mission seems to have been a long way off.
Football Betting Tips Bologna vs. Juventus
The more Bologna FC will have to take care now, if the Vecchia Signora could once again become the Signora Omicidi and shoot in Emilia-Romagna, the frustration of the soul. It is not for nothing that Bologna’s defeat against Juventus clearly puts bookmakers in the direction of the Italian series and record champions who won ten of their eleven away games in Serie A this season (a draw) – a telling one at Bologna vs Juventus number, especially as the Rossoblu can show themselves only two home wins from eleven games in the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara. In short: Tip 2 is a largely no-alternative affair.
Bologna – Statistics & Current Form
The seven-time Italian champion from the north of the country is currently in acute descent fear. Already in the years 2005 to 2008 as well as in the 2014/15 season, the traditional club had to settle for the Serie B and in the last season, 16th, was just barely able to finish. Currently it looks less rosy. Although the Veltri were only able to celebrate a surprising 1-0 away win at Inter Milan three weeks ago, only place 18 is currently booked. The distance to the saving bank is already three points and could continue to grow in the event of a home defeat against the Bianconeri.
“At Bologna, I started my career as a coach. Today it’s a new start for me. I will do everything I can to save the club. ” – Siniša Mihajlović at La Gazzetta dello Sport
Meanwhile, the hope of another surprise point win in the Rossoblu should not be too big, especially since the reason for the misery can be found in the weak offensive: Only 19 goals from 24 league games is the second worst value of the entire Serie A. Ironically against the The league’s most stable defensive game is unlikely to be realistic, especially as Juve offers the best offensive in addition to the league’s best defense. And yet: The recent upswing under coach Siniša Mihajlović, who took the scepter on January 28, 2019, is palpable. Four points from three games against big chunks like Inter, Genoa and AS Roma were there. In addition, missing striker Mattia Destro only a single player. At Bologna vs Juventus the prediction for another much needed point gain of the underdog is still very bad.
Best scorers in the league:
- Federico Santander (6 goals)

Juventus – Statistics & Current Form
Hangover prevails these days in Turin. While in recent years the championship in Serie A and mostly Coppa Italia have been a regular bonus, the yearning for the Champions League has grown immeasurably after five losing finals in a row. That even Cristiano Ronaldo, who was brought as a five-time Champions League winner as a savior, could not fix the curse of the old lady, these days at least broke the share price of the financially troubled traditional club – and that, although the second leg is still outstanding. But if Atlético scores an away goal in Torino, what the offensive around Griezmann, Costa and Morata must always be credited with, it looks scowling, but the Vecchia Signora would need at least four own goals.
Already in two weeks, the season could end prematurely for the Bianconeri. Massimiliano Allegri’s squad failed in the quarter-finals at Atalanta Bergamo (3-0) in Coppa Italia and they could be in the last sixteen in the Champions League, while 21 wins out of 24 games (three draws) in Serie A the vest still shines in brilliant white. No defeat of the season and a 13 point advantage on SSC Napoli, which can hardly be lost anymore. Nevertheless, the Bianconeri’s last five competitive matches have just won two games (two defeats, one draw), which makes it all the more important to regain some self-confidence before the difficult second leg against Atlético Madrid. With Emre Can (yellow card suspension) and Sami Khedira, who will fail for at least a month after diagnosed cardiac arrhythmias, Allegri will have to do without his two German national team players in addition to Cuadrado (knee injury), but it will surely be indispensable in Emilia Romagna to draw from the full. According to no alternative appears at Bologna against Juventus the tip for the next away three of the Bianconeri in Serie A to be.
Best scorers in the league:
- Cristiano Ronaldo (19 goals)

Bologna vs. Juventus Direct Comparison & Stats Highlights
Head to head: 25 – 52 – 83
There have been a total of 160 clashes between Bologna FC and Juventus, and so far this duel has rarely been pleasing to Rossoblu. With only 25 games won (= 15.8% win rate), the hosts from northern Italy are able to beat it, while the Bianconeri won most of their games in 52 draws with 83 wins. Also in the season so far it was very clear. In the first half of the season, Vecchia Signora won 2-0 at home to goals from Dybala and Matuidi before a 2-0 away win at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara in the Coppa Italia round of 16 last year. With the protection of several regulars, Bernadeschi and Kean provided for a completely unbearable away win, in which the home side did not make a single shot on goal.
Bologna vs Juventus Football Betting Tips
Although a fresh breeze is blowing in Bologna since Siniša Mihajlović took on the coaching position three and a half weeks ago, overall the zebras are more than just one size too big for the Veltri, who need an absolute cream day to be one in this home game to come to another so vitally important point gain. Although Juve was vulnerable to standards last season (six out of the last seven goals conceded after dormant balls), Bologna does not fare too well here either.
Key Facts – Bologna vs Juventus tips
Juventus won both games against Rossoblu this season 2-0
Bologna took four points from their last three games
Juventus still unbeaten in Serie A (21 wins, three draws)
Thus, at Bologna vs Juventus tip 2 on the next away win of the old lady remains a no-alternative matter. It would be conceivable, however, to push the odds either through a handicap (maximum -1.5) or alternatively to insist that there will again be a victory without conceding against Rossoblu. Because the team under their new-old coach but clearly matured, at least on this point should be refrained from. We remain with Bologna vs Juventus in the prediction that the Bianconeri will celebrate their eleventh away win in the twelfth away match of the current Serie A season.
