In this stadium, the history of direct confrontations is favorable to the away team, which records 2 wins and 1 loss in the last 3 matches. However, the last time these two teams played a match in this stadium was on 04-30-2017, for Serie A, which ended with Bologna’s victory by (4-0). The goals of the match were scored by M. Destro (2 ‘and 59’), S. Taïder (45 ‘) and Danilo (68’ Autogolo) for Bologna. In this game the home factor may be decisive, since Udinese has considerable differences in their results at home and as visitors.
After 7 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses, the home team is currently in the 12 th position of the league, with 24 points won. In the last match, they have won in an away match against Chievo by (2-3), after in the previous match they have lost (0-3) at home, against Juventus. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses at their stadium. For the championship, Bologna won 9 points out of 27 possible points, after 2 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in the last 9 home matches. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, as 9 of the last 9 matches for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 18 matches in this competition, they only won 1 comeback in the 9 matches they suffered the first goal.
The Bologna enters the field for this game a little more relieved, having managed to rediscover the path of victory in the Italian league, thus enclosing a fast that lasted three days. On the occasion, he played a very balanced game against Chievo, and even finishing less than half the time of the opponent, he managed to show more opportunism, thus leaving the three points. Although he does not have one of the worst defenses of the competition, he only suffered no goals in four games, thus showing some inconsistency in that sector. The situation of the attack is not very different, since it is the second least finished in the championship. Playing at home, he owns the fifth worst campaign and in that condition he has one of the four worst defenses. It is likely that the coach will organize the team in a 4-3-3 and in that match midfielder Poli will not have at his disposal, who is suspended.
The away team is currently in the 9 th position of the league, with 24 points won, after 8 wins and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Internazionale, by (1-3). In the last match, they won in a home match against Hellas Verona, by (4-0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses in away matches, with 19 goals scored and 29 conceded; against 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 36 goals scored and 23 conceded. In the last 7 away league matches Udinese has a record of 3 wins and 4 losses, so they have won 9 points out of 21 possible. Their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 17 matches in this competition, they have only won 1 of their 9 matches since they conceded the first goal.
Udinese did not have a good start in the Italian league, but now it has managed to recover and is going through its best moment, as it comes from four consecutive victories, having suffered a goal in that period. On the last day he was far superior to Verona, finishing with nine times more finishes than the opponent, leaving then with a beautiful win, with two goals scored in each of the halves of the game. Offensive performance in that game made it clear that the attack has been largely responsible for the recovery of the team, as it is now the sixth best in the competition. However, it is still leaving to wish on two issues: possession of the ball and change of passes, being among the five worst teams in those aspects. The coach has been changing the tactical configuration of the team frequently, but he should not have great problems to choose the starting eleven.
