Football Betting Match Preview: Italy Serie A - Napoli vs Bologna 29/12/2018

Napoli captain potential injury and two midfielders will be suspended


Napoli's visit to Inter Milan in mid-week was preceded by unrest, while koulibaly was racially discriminated in the match, and he and Insine were both red card, resulting in the 9-man defeat by Inter Milan 0-1 in stoppage time.

At this point, Napoli's unbeaten record for 10 consecutive rounds of league matches has been overwhelmed. Not only have they been extended to 9 points by Juventus, but their advantage over Inter has also been reduced to 5 points.

The impact on the front is slightly smaller. After all, there is Mertens. The Belgian striker has only played 20 minutes in midweek. He is expected to return to the lineup

There is no need to worry too much about midfield and defend, because Napoli's home defense this season is reassuring. So far, seven of the 12 home games have achieved clean sheet, with a total of 9 wins and 3 draws. The home defend is very strong.


Filippo Inzaghi led Bologna home against Lazio coached by his younger brother Simone Inzaghi  in midweek. Last time when the 2 teams face each other, the  matches ended in a 0-2 defeat for Bologna.

After losing the game, Bologna suffered 11 consecutive Serie A no win ( 6 draw 5 defeat), ranking third from the bottom, two points behind Udinese.

Bologna have failed to score in last three consecutive league matches, which is closely related to the recent downturn of top scorer Federico Santander. The Paraguayan striker is currently facing a six-round scoring shortage.

Bologna, moreover, has no away game winning form. They have not won 16 Serie A tournaments (5 D-11 L), not to mention facing Napoli, which has a strong home form.

In terms of past performance, Bologna has not only lost all the games against Napoli in the past five times, but also lost 3-22 goals, averaging 4.4 goals per game, which is a huge gap.
