“Soccer" Who Wins?

Bologna is currently 2nd in the Serie A ladder with a record of 2-1-0 in three matches played so far. After a draw against Verona in Round 1, Bologna has posted back to back victories over SPAL and Brescia. In their last match played, they outgunned Brescia to the tune of 4-3.

A.S. Roma is 8th in the Serie A with their 1-2-0 SU record. They opened their season with draws against Genoa and Lazio. In their most recent match, A.S. Roma notched their first win of the season during a 4-2 conquest of Sassuolo.

Both these teams head to this contest with a win in their last match. But Roma has played better overall this season especially on offense with eight goals scored. They have also dominated this match-up historically, although the teams have been pretty much even as of late. I am not counting out a draw here but with Aleksander Kolarov in fine form early, I think Roma has the advantage here. Prediction: A.S. Roma
