Bologna and Sampdoria will play today match of the 27th round of the Italian Serie A from 12.30. Both clubs are in the middle of the league standings, they will not be afraid to stay in elite rank, nor can they win European positions, so they can play quite relaxed until the end of this season.

Bologna has 28 points in 13th place, but in terms of quality of play deserved more. It can be said that the team led by coach Siniša Mihajlović had many bad luck, Bologna was better side in several games and created more opportunities than its rivals, but didn't scored goals and points.

A good example is the last round when was defeated against Napoli 1:3, but had several clear chances and hit the post two times. Mihajlović hopes that his team will be happier by the end of this season, and that they will crown good games with victories.

The first could arrive today against Sampdoria, a rival that has four points more, but isn't of better quality than the hosts. Bologna are back in the squad midfielder Schouten and defender Tomiyasu and both will probably start, and none of the standard players is missing, which means that Mihajlović is going with the strongest team, which will be offensively oriented.

Roberto Soriano has caught the eye for Bologna this season. He leads the club with eight goals, four of those having been first of the match, and Orsolini and Barrow added nine more goals together. Bologna have secured 18 points (W5 D3 L4) from a possible 36 in 12 Serie A matches at home this season.

Bologna have got the better of Sampdoria of late with wins in four straight clashes, dating to April 2019. and outscored club from Genoa 9:3 during their winning streak. In the last nine games this season at their stadium, coach Mihajlović's team has scored at least one goal each time.

Sampdoria is in 11th place with 32 points, but in the last seven rounds has only one win and three draws and defeats. Experienced coach Claudio Ranieri isn't satisfied with form of his team and believes that his players can do better in this game. Important central defender Colley has been suspended for this match, and striker Ernesto Torregrossa has been injured, so the guest attack will be led by Fabio Quagliarella, who has been the leading attacking threat, scoring on eight occasions, including four match-opening goals. He will be joined by Ramirez in a 4-4-2 formation on the pitch.

Sampdoria achieved four victories and scored 15 goals in 13 away games, and against all clubs from the lower half of Serie A, they usually scored a goal or two.

This is a game in which tactics and defense shouldn't be in the forefront, both clubs want a victory, especially the host Bologna, which will try to impose the strongest possible rhythm from the start of match.

Therefore, there should be a lot of chances and shots, and therefore goals, because the defense isn't "forte" of any team. In last five mutual matches, these two clubs have always scored at least three goals in total, and impression is that it should be the same today.

WIN Score: 3:1 Profit: +0.87
