Roma vs Bologna Predictions


Monday's Serie A contest is a tough match to call with little to choose between these sides. 

While both are in excellent form, I expect a tense and tight encounter with less than three goals scored. 

  • Roma have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches
  • Roma have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 6 matches against Bologna
  • Bologna have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches

Head to Head


Monday's Serie A contest will be the 42nd meeting between these sides since 2000. Roma hold the H2H advantage with 23 wins to eight. Bologna claimed a 2-0 victory in their most recent encounter earlier this season. 

Only five goals have been scored in the last six meetings between these sides. None of those games saw BTTS, while Bologna have failed to score on their three previous visits to the Olimpico. 

Roma Form


Roma return to Serie A action in high spirits after completing an impressive 3-1 aggregate victory against Milan in the Europa League. Having claimed a 1-0 win at the San Siro ten days ago, I Giallorossi finished the job with a 2-1 win in Rome on Thursday. 

Danielle De Rossi's side have been in great form, with five wins in their last six matches across all competitions. Roma are unbeaten in 12 of their last 13 matches and in 20 of their previous 21 games at the Olimpico.

I Giallorossi sit fifth in Serie A, four points behind Bologna, but with a game in hand on their opponents on Monday. 

Roma Team News


Roma boss De Rossi is unable to call on Romelu Lukaku after the on-loan Belgian was forced-off in Thursday's win against Milan. Tammy Abraham could return to the starting XI following his return to the squad after a lengthy injury layoff. 

Evan Ndicka also misses out after his dramatic collapse in the abandoned fixture against Udinese last weekend. 

Bologna Form


Bologna's Champions League qualification hopes were dented with four points dropped in back-to-back goalless draws against Frosinone and Monza. Despite those setbacks, I Rossoblu remain fourth in the division, five points behind Juventus, but with a game in hand on the Old Lady. 

Italy's surprise package this season, Thiago Motta's side have proven a particularly tough nut to crack. Bologna are unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 league matches, and 12 of 15 Serie A matches on their travels since August. 

Bologna Team News


Head coach Motta suffered a serious blow this week, with the loss of club captain Lewis Ferguson, who has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with an ACL injury. Adama Soumaoro and Jens Odgaard also remain absent for the visitors. 

Alexis Saelemaekers is available after serving a one-match ban. 

Verdict

A tense and tight affair seems likely in Monday's Serie A fixture in Rome.

Under 2.5 goals is my only tip for what should prove a competitive contest at the famous Olimpico.
