Bologna vs VeronaSerie A, KO: 19:45 Sep 13, 2021, Stadio Renato Dall'Ara
Verona continue to search for their first points of the season as they travel to the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara for an Italian Serie A clash with Bologna. The hosts have made a confident start to the season and should have too much for a struggling Verona team.
Bologna played out a 0-0 draw away at Atalanta in their previous Serie A fixture. They set out to frustrate the hosts and despite riding their luck a few times, will be happy to have come away from Bergamo with a point.
Bologna have started the season well and are unbeaten after two matches. Manager Sinisa Mihailovic will be particularly pleased with his team’s defending last time out as they shut out Atalanta's exciting attack.
Bologna bolstered their attacking ranks in the summer and have the quality to take the game to the opposition when they need to. Summer signing Marko Arnautovic is already off the mark this season, scoring in the 3-0 victory over Salernitana on the opening weekend.
Verona suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Inter Milan last time out in Serie A. They took an early lead through Ivan Ilic but succumbed to the superior quality of the Champions.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s men have endured a poor start to the campaign having lost their opening two matches. Verona have a difficult early season schedule and with in-form Roma up next, will be keen to come away with something from Bologna.
Verona have some fire power in attack and have scored in both their matches this season. They have however been poor in defence with six goals conceded already in just two fixtures.
How the bookies view it

Bologna are unbeaten in their last seven matches against Verona and claimed a 1-0 victory the last time both teams met at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
