Football Prediction of the Day AS Roma vs Bologna
Rome is, by definition, a very offensive team. Especially on their own ground, the Capitolini manage to put great pressure on the opponent, regardless of his name. Fonseca’s team play is based on many balls out of bounds, because Dzeko is waiting in the box.
Pellegrini’s absence will make the game even more focused on the lanes, so I expect a game with many corner kicks.
I bet at least 11, considering that 3 of the last 4 live had at least 11 corners.
Roma had over 7.5 corners in 3 of the last 4 with Bologna, which, in turn, had over 5.5 corners in 4 of the last 5 championship matches. Unibet offers the best odds.
