Clay McGibbonJuventus v Bologna, Saturday October 19, 19:45, Allianz Stadium. Serie A returns this weekend following the international break with champions and early league leaders Juventus hoping to continue their winning streak at home to an out-of-form Bologna.
Only eight goals have gone in across Bologna’s last four Serie A matches while for Juventus, the figure is just 11 goals across the past five matches in the division. This is likely to be a low-scoring encounter with Bologna looking to sit deep and hold out the hosts for as long as possible, but Juve should secure victory in a game of few goals. This is among the best online betting odds for the weekend. 888Sport price under 2.5 goals at 5/4.
Linked into the previous bet, Juve are strong favourites to win but the value is in Sarri’s side winning to nil. Bologna have failed to score in two of their last three matches while Juve have conceded just three goals in their last five outings. A Juve win to nil is 5/4 at 888Sport.
