This weekend, the reigning Italian champions will be under intense scrutiny as they try to snap a two-game losing streak in Serie A. Bologna will be playing at home and will be looking to extend their winning streak in the league to five games.
The defending champions have gotten off to a slow start this season, and Napoli must now play catch-up to the league leaders. The Italian powerhouses have only won two of their first four games this season, and they enter this matchup having dropped their last two matches in the league.
The visitors need to go back on the winning track this weekend, but they’ll need to fix their defensive problems first. The defending champions have let in five goals so far this season, including two in a recent 2-2 draw with Genoa. They would have been boosted by their impressive Champions League performance against Braga last week, though.
If Bologna were to win every game this weekend, they might finish ahead of their competition if only by a single point. After suffering an opening-day loss, the Italian club has won their last three matches. Two of their matches over that time frame have ended in draws, however.
Bologna has had a lot of trouble with draws recently; only Salernitana has had more ties so far in 2023. That’s reflected in the fact that Bologna have played to a draw in 10% of their 27 Serie A matches this season. However, in their last nine home games, they have gone undefeated.
Napoli has scored more goals than any other Serie A team against Bologna. In 128 previous confrontations, Bologna has prevailed 41 times, for a total of 49 victories. In May, these two teams played to a 2-2 draw.
It would be an ideal time to face the Italian champions, Napoli, because they have not yet reached full speed in Serie A this season. Bologna has ended up with nine consecutive home draws, suggesting a draw is conceivable this weekend.
