Paolo Bandini's Serie A Betting: Clash Between In-form Bologna And Empoli To Close To Separate


Saturday

Bologna - Empoli

Bologna were four points adrift of safety when Roberto Donadoni took over at the end of October. Beat Empoli this weekend, and they could finish the year as high as joint-10th. Their transformation has been so swift as to scarcely seem plausible. They have won four and drawn another of their six matches under the new manager.

But Empoli’s points haul over that stretch is identical to Bologna’s, and they have kept clean sheets in each of their last three matches. Bologna’s midfield, furthermore, will be diminished by a suspension to Amadou Diawara.

Draw - 3.20
