Fiorentina plays host to Bologna in Serie A soccer action from Stadio Artemio Franchi on Wednesday afternoon.
Fiorentina comes into this game in 12th place on 43 points with a record of 10 wins, 13 draws and 13 losses following a 2-1 loss to AS Roma last time out. In the loss to Roma, Fiorentina fell behind right before the half as Roma scored from the penalty spot. Fiorentina tied the game at one in the 54th minute thanks to a goal from Nikola Milenkovic. The tie would hold until Roma re-took the lead in the 87th minute from the penalty spot, leaving Fiorentina searching for a tying goal late but it never came. Federico Chiesa leads Fiorentina in scoring with 7 goals as well as 5 assists while Dusan Vlahovic and Erick Pulgar each have 6 goals with Pulgar adding 5 assists as well. Bartlomiej Dragowski leads Fiorentina in goal, conceding 1.26 goals per 90 minutes with 8 clean sheets in 31 league appearances this season.
Bologna on the other hand, sit in 10th place on 46 points with a record of 12 wins, 10 draws and 14 losses following a 3-2 win over Lecce last time out. In the win over Lecce, Rodrigo Palacio gave Bologna the lead in the 2nd minute and Roberto Soriano put Bologna up 2-0 just three minutes later. Lecce pulled a goal back in first-half stoppage time, and would equalize in the 66th minute but Musa Barrow would steal the win and the points in the third minute of second-half stoppage time. Barrow leads Bologna in scoring with 9 goals while Riccardo Orsolini has 8 goals and a team-high 6 assists and Palacio has 7 goals this season. Lukasz Skorupski leads Bologna in goal, conceding 1.49 goals per 90 minutes with two clean sheets in 35 league appearances this season.
It’s hard splitting hairs between these two teams that really have nothing to play for. With that said, the last three meetings between these two teams have ended in draws, and with not a lot on the line here, I could easily see the two sides playing out 90 minutes just to get the game out of the way. I’ll side with the draw as my main bet for this match.
