Bologna were unable to follow up back-to-back victories as they lost 1-0 at Fiorentina and so they remain in 14th, the same place they finished last term. Roma kept up some of the pressure on Juve as they beat Empoli while the league leaders drew at Napoli. The gap at the top has now been reduced to six points and Juve still have to travel to Roma.
After four straight home defeats, Bologna bounced back with a 4-1 win over Chievo in their last game at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara. However, it’s telling as far as this fixture is concerned that each of those four defeats came against top-seven sides. Indeed, they’ve lost all six of their home games against top-eight teams this season, with their only goal across these coming in a 7-1 thrashing at the hands of Napoli.
Roma have won five of their last six away, keeping a clean sheet in four of these victories and leading at the break in each. When travelling to bottom-half sides they’re W5-D2-L0, keeping five clean sheets and as a result we expect them to keep touch with Juve and win this one without conceding.
