  • Venue: Stadio Renato Dall'Ara (Bologna)

Having failed to win any of their opening 3 Serie A fixtures, Bologna fans will be expecting a return to form when the hosts welcome great-escape-artists Salernitana to the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara.

Sinisa Mihajlovic´s side are beginning to feel a little bit of pressure, having taken just 1 point from their first 3 league outings, while they have now won only 3 of their last 16 league matches since late February and a win is surely a must here for the home side to kick-start the new campaign.

Of course, Bologna have had a tough run of fixtures to begin the season, including fruitless away trips to Milan and Lazio as well as the visit of a stubborn Verona. 

Now back at home, Bologna will be expected to overcome a revitalised Salernitana side that comes into this fixture boosted by a big 4:0 win against Sampdoria this past weekend.

Bologna vs Salernitana Betting Tips: BTTS

While Salernitana struggled somewhat both at home and on their travels last season in their first Serie A campaign since 1999, they finished the campaign by sensationally avoiding relegation from a seemingly desperate situation. 

On the road, Salernitana were particularly impressive, and they arrive in Bologna unbeaten in their last 5 away Serie A matches. Indeed, Salernitana improved dramatically as last season progressed, with the visitors picking up an impressive 19 points from their last 11 fixtures as they narrowly avoided relegation by a solitary point. They had collected only 12 points from their first 27 fixtures.

Of their last 11 away matches in Serie A, 7 finished with BTTS, with Salernitana only failing to score away against heavy-hitters Juventus and Inter as well as Udinese.

For the hosts, each of their last 4 home league matches saw BTTS, while last season´s corresponding fixture finished as a high-scoring 3:2 win for Bologna. BTTS also occurred in the reverse meeting with a 1:1 draw in Salerno last February.

With Salernitana boosted by their big weekend win, we like the chances of BTTS in this fixture, with Bologna also struggling for home clean sheets. With Salernitana keeping just 2 clean sheets of their own in the last 20 away league outings, another BTTS pick looks like the preferred betting angle for this Serie A contest.
