Tobias Gourlay expects defences to be beaten black and blue as Bologna travel to the Black and Greens
Sassuolo v Bologna Friday 19:45 (Live on Free Sports)
Gent grabbed more than a goal in Germany last night. They scored three times in total and flew back to Belgium with all three points. Happily for us, hosts Wolfsburg scored one of their own to land our BTTS bet.
We're hoping for more goals in Italy this evening. Since Roberto De Zerbi took charge of Sassuolo, two-thirds of their Serie A home games have delivered Over 2.5 Goals (16/24, including 5/5 this season). We're hopeful they can make it 17/25 hosting Sinisa Mihajlovic's Bologna tonight.
Last season's head-to-heads brought a 2-1 home win for Bologna and a 2-2 draw in this fixture. This term, Sassuolo's five games at the Citta del Tricolore have produced 23 goals (the joint most in the league). The hosts have shaded things, scoring 12 themselves.
Bologna are averaging exactly three match goals on the road this season (18 in six games). Under Mihajlovic, they have delivered Over 2.5 Goals in 9/14 away games. Most recently, they have been top-six outfits Juventus and Cagliari and lost 1-2 and 2-3. We fancy they can grab at least a goal tonight to take this one over the goals line too.
