In the second round of Serie A, Bologna will play Parma. Bologna was a mid-range team last season with limited scoring ability at home and a win rate of only 31%. In the first round against AC Milan, both sides were at a disadvantage in the whole game. Bologna finally lost 0-2. Besides, the main left back was sent off before the end, so the defense in this game will be weakened.
Parma's performance last season was similar to Bologna. Their home and away records are more balanced, and they have no outstanding advantages. It is worth mentioning that the top two scorers left the team, who were the key to grab points. As a result, there will a big decline in the team’s offense this season. Parma faced Napoli in the first round and lost 0-2 without any goal scored.
In previous clashes, Bologna got 2 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses in the recent 10 games and teh recent two ones ended in draw. Both teams had no obvious psychological advantage, and they all lost the first round. The handicap first odds was opened to Bologna -0.25 with medium return and the odds has risen to -0.5 in the later period, showing more support for the home team. I will expect Bologna to run out this time.
Pick: Bologna -0.5
Prediction: Bologna wins
Score Prediction: 2-0, 2-1
