After a run of three winless games, Juve secured their sixth consecutive Scudetto with a 3-0 home win over Crotone. The Old Lady’s work is done as far as the league is concerned, as is Bologna’s, who secured their Serie A status with recent wins over Pescara and Udinese, though they were well-beaten last time out at Milan as they went down 3-0.
After a run of four straight home defeats, Bologna have since won three of their last four at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara, though it’s telling that the run of defeats were all against top-seven sides. Bologna have in fact lost all seven of their home games against top-eight teams this term, failing to score in six of these, with the exception when they were thumped 7-1 by Napoli. That’s in stark contrast to last season when they picked up five points from the visits of the top-three, holding Juve themselves to a goalless draw.
That seems unlikely this time around as Juve have netted in all but one of their 37 games so far. They have, however, been somewhat vulnerable at the other end of the pitch, keeping just two clean sheets in their last six on their travels. With the title already sewn up and their big day in Cardiff still to come, it’s unclear how strong a side Juve will field here, though Bologna don’t have anything to play for themselves. With that in mind, the champions look a fair price at 2.1 given the depth of their squad, but since they’ve been a bit lax defensively on the road recently, whilst Bologna have scored 11 in their last three at home, we’ll take a chance on Juve to win and both teams to score.
