Match date: 07/03/2021

Napoli and Bologna will meet in last match of today's 26th round of the Italian Serie A at 20.45 CET. For sixth-placed Napoli, this is a very important match in the fight for European places, while 12-placed Bologna wants to strengthen his position as far away as possible from the relegation zone.

Napoli expected more from this season and coach Ivan Gennaro Gattuso has been the target of frequent criticism. Many predict his dismissal at the end of the season, but he still aims to try to reach the fourth place, that leads to the Champions League. Therefore, he shouldn't calculate too much about tactics, especially at home, where Napoli always goes offensively and to victory.

It will be the same today, and fact that Lozano and Petagna are already out for last five games, and they have scored a total of 13 goals this season, are only worries of Gattuso about the team. But in the 4-2-3-1 formation he has four top-solutions because Politano, Insigne, Zielinski and Mertens, have already scored 29 goals and they can create big problems for any defense.

Bologna is a team that plays 'warm-cold', when they have a good day, they beat Lazio, but lose to Cagliari in the next round. As a guest Bologna has seven defeats in 13 games, but has scored at least one goal in most of them.

Coach Siniša Mihajlović will not be limited to defense even today, he is aware of the strength of Napoli's attack, and without at least one goal, it is difficult for guests to hope for anything better than defeat.

Hickey, Tomiyaso and Farago are missing for Bologna in defense, and midfielder Schouten has been suspended. But offensive players are on the number, there are Soriano, Sansone, Barrow and others, so Mihajlović reckons that they could get chanches, especially in counter-attacks.

There are two betting options in this match. Either victory of Napoli with two or more goals differences or at least three goals in total. We choose the latter, because these are unpredictable teams, but it will not be boring and goalless.


Last three times when these two clubs played in Naples, results were 1:2, 3:2 and 3:1.

WIN Score: 3:1 Profit: +0.72
