In the first round of the Italian championship 2022/23 Juventus defeated Bologna 3-0 at home. Overall, the Turin side have beaten Bologna in four of their last five matches.
Despite the field factor, our team are on the Turin side of the pair, believing that Juventus will bring a full three points from Bologna.
Under Motta, the team really began to play steadily, and with rare exceptions makes mistakes. Especially this fact extends to home games, where Bologna in the last 10 matches on Renato Dal’Ara won 5 times, 3 games ended in a draw and only 2 lost. Milan, Lazio and Inter have already made sure that it is difficult to beat the Red and Blue on their territory. None of them has taken three points away from Bologna.
Juventus have stalled badly. The team cannot win four meetings in a row, and it should be noted that the opponents were not of the timid ten, but when you are the grandee of Italian soccer, you cannot forgive such weaknesses. Especially surprising is the club’s crisis in terms of realization. “The old signora is on goal from match to match, according to xG stats, but 1 goal scored in the last 4 games, speaks volumes about their abysmal work in the frontcourt. The team is in a slump, and no other way.
Juventus’ tight schedule is probably the club’s problem. Allegri has failed to distribute his forces on three fronts. The Turin side have played a difficult stretch, and between matches they had a maximum of 3-4 days’ rest and managed to face Napoli, Inter, Sporting and Sassuolo. No wonder that it was very difficult to beat Juve. It’s a different situation for Bologna.
The team is focused strictly on Serie A, and has enough time to recover between games. No doubt, the motivation of Allegri’s charges is at a high level, but physically and mentally the Greyhounds are definitely stronger. And only 3 defeats in 16 rounds at home in the domestic championship, talk about the great potential of the club in the home arena.
