Reason For Udinese vs Bologna Betting Tips
Neither of these two sides have had a good season so far, but could this be their chance to turn things around? They’ve both shown some inconsistent form, but they have shown flashes of talent. Udinese come into this clash 15th in the table, while they’re up against a Bologna side who are one place above them.
Despite that, neither of them are anywhere close to relegation danger. The bottom three in Serie A have been cut adrift, which is good news for these two sides. Udinese are eight points above the drop ahead of this weekend’s games, and it’s hard to see them being dragged back into it. They could move even further clear with victory here.
Udinese have a great chance of claiming the points, they’re up against a Bologna side who have conceded in their last nine outings. They’ve managed to win just one of those, which is the kind of form that would usually see them drop into the bottom three. The visitors have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their away matches this season.
Bologna have conceded far too many goals on the road, they’ve let in 2.33 per game so far. They also give away a high number of chances to their opponents on their travels. They face over 20 shots on average, which goes some way to explaining their awful form away. They’ve failed to win any of their last 13 league matches away from Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
They take that awful record to an Udinese team who have conceded in 11 straight matches, while they’ve conceded in 86% of their home games. That includes their last six at the Dacia Arena. However, they’re pretty strong going forward at this ground; they’ve scored 1.57 goals per match in front of their own fans. They’re pretty clinical, having converted 13% of their chances in to goals here.
Bologna don’t have the same kind of impressive attacking record; they average just a goal per game this season. However, they’re facing a Udinese side who have conceded at least two goals in five of their last six at home. Both teams have scored in the hosts’ last seven games, while five of Bologna’s last six away games have seen both sides find the net. That makes BTTS look well priced in this one, it’s 10/11 with bet365.
