The Red-Blue shows quality modern football and skillfully controls the ball but has problems completing attacks. Again, Bologna needs a scoring striker. But how to find such a forward who would not only score but also fit the team's style of play? Marko Arnautovic, who moved to Inter in the offseason, and Joshua Zirkzee, for various reasons, do not fit this role.
In the midweek, Bologna, for the third time in a row, drew 0:0 - this time away against Monza. Before that, the Red-Blue ended with the same score as Napoli and Verona. Thiago Motta's team scored only three goals in six rounds - fewer than only the three outsiders at the start of the championship, Cagliari, Udinese, and Empoli.
The Blues changed the head coach, Aurelio Andreazzolli, who replaced Paolo Zanetti and broke the series of failures. However, at the second attempt - in the first match after the change of coach Empoli lost on their field to Inter 0:1. During the week, in the second game under Andrezolli, Empoli also at home beat Salernitana 1:0. And the score could well have been bigger - the Blues did not realize their chances, which according to the statistics of expected goals, created 2.59 goals scored.
Expert Betting Tips
For unknown reasons, in recent years, Bologna has regularly had problems in matches with Empoli, so, considering this statistic, we will not expect a win for the Red-Blues here. We'd rather take a low-scoring bet. Both teams have obvious problems in attack, and they likely won't score more than two goals apiece. Bologna, remember, scored only three goals in six rounds, and Empoli - just one.
