The home team only won their first win of the season in the last round. In front of their fans, they managed to do a serious feat considering that they defeated the Fiorentina team with a score of 2:1.

Before this match, Bologna is in 12th position in the table, but in our opinion, this is not proportional to their quality this season. They have shown on several occasions that they can be a very difficult opponent. And, what is the biggest change compared to last season – they are much more dangerous for the opponent’s goal.

However, the goalscoring performance is still lacking and is not at the level required for a serious result. But, we are confident that Bologna can get closer to the top of the table if they continue at this pace.


If this continues, Empoli will be one of the main candidates for relegation. In 6 games played, they recorded 4 draws and 2 defeats, so with 4 points they are in 16th place in the table.

The streak of four consecutive draws ended in the last round when Roma beat them 2:1 at home. Regardless of that defeat, we have to praise the players of Empoli and say that they put up an excellent resistance, but in the end, they were still unlucky.

According to their combativeness in the last few games, it is realistic to expect Empoli to “attack” the first victory of the season, and this could very easily happen in Bologna. Until the game with Roma, they had an average of 4.75 shots on the opponent’s goal frame, so we believe that they can score at least one goal in this away game.


Four of the last five games between these teams ended with at least 3 goals scored.

Injuries and suspensions

Bologna: Dominguez and Soumaro. Arnautović and Sansone are uncertain about their performance in this match.

Empoli: Akpa Akpro and Tonellil. Baldanzi, Destro, Ebuehi and Stubljar are questionable.

Bologna vs. Empoli Prediction

Bologna is a team that plays more offensively in the current part of the season, so for this reason we give them a better chance to win all 3 points in this match. The problem for the home team could be if Arnautović is not in the starting 11, which could affect their goalscoring performance.

Incredibly, Empoli has yet to win this season, and the pressure is slowly increasing, so there is no doubt that they will be extra motivated to make the best possible impression in this game.

As both of them need points, we believe in a much more offensive approach, where at least 2 goals should not be missed.
