Preview: Juventus vs Bologna
Juventus come into this game having beaten Inter in the Derby d'Italia just before the international hiatus. That result ended Antonio Conte's side's winning streak and thus their reign as the league leaders, and has now ensured that Maurizio Sarri's men come back from the latest international pause on top of the league table. However, Juve only enjoy a narrow one-point lead over Conte's ambitious side, and will certainly want to at least temporarily extend that to four before Inter feature against Sassuolo on Sunday.
Meawhile, Bologna have failed to win their last four games and have been dealing with a huge blow since the start of the season. With coach Sinisa Mihajlovic battling lukemia and undergoing treatment, the Serbian tactician has been in and out of the side and his frequent absences from the bench certainly have had a massive impact on the team. Furthermore, Bologna have won just one game against Juventus (out of 31) played in the 21st century, and none of their last even across all competitions. On the road, they have won just three of their last 33.
To top it off, Bologna have failed to score in their last three games against Juventus. Will they be able to end that frustrating run this Saturday? Or will Juventus, who have been growing in strength, and further encouraged by their win over Inter recently, sweep them aside as they look forward to their upcoming Champions League tie coming up next week?
