Roma will look to bounce back from their recent Serie A defeat this weekend when they take on Bologna. They need to get maximum points to ensure they are still in a Europa League spot at the end of the matchday.
Serie A preview
A European place is Roma’s goal this season, and it looks like they might achieve that in Jose Mourinho’s first season as the club’s coach. However, they have suffered some setbacks in recent weeks, failing to win in their last two games. But they managed to keep the fifth place after both Lazio and Fiorentina failed to win in the same period.
The Italians still have three wins in their last five games and can still qualify for the Europa Conference League with a win this season. However, Mourinho will be hoping for a much better performance from his side than the recent defeat to Inter Milan last weekend. On that occasion, Inter won confidently 3-1, with Roma’s only goal coming five minutes from time through Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The season is actually over for Bologna, as they are in mid-table at this point in the season. They have a comfortable 17-point lead over the relegation places, but they are too far away from taking a step towards Europe.
Their recent form has been extremely impressive as they are unbeaten in their last five matches and have won twice in their last four games. Bologna’s last match was against Inter Milan on Wednesday night, where they scored a famous 2-1 home win over Inter Milan. Nicola Sansone scored the winning goal in that match nine minutes before the end of 90 minutes.
Roma Vs Bologna prediction
It’s a difficult game this weekend, as Bologna comes into the match with the better form. That could be a deciding factor against a Roma team that played just three days earlier. A draw could be a wise decision this weekend.
