Bologna vs Hellas Verona prediction, preview, team news and more | Serie A 2021-22
The Italian Serie A returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Bologna welcome Hellas Verona to the Renato Dall’Ara Stadium on Monday.
The hosts are unbeaten against the visitors in their last seven meetings across all competitions and will be looking to maintain their dominance.
Bologna continued their solid start to the season last time out when they held Atalanta to a goalless draw away from home.
Polish goalkeeper Łukasz Skorupski put in an inspired performance between the sticks for the Rossoblù as he made several saves to repel the Atalanta frontmen.
This followed a thrilling 3-2 victory over newly-promoted Salernitana in their league curtain-raiser.
Meanwhile, Hellas Vereno failed to pick up their first point of the season as they fell to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Inter Milan.
The Gialloblu went ahead inside the first quarter of an hour through Ivan Ilic’s strike, but Lautaro Martinez restored parity shortly after the break before Joaquin Correa completed the comeback with a late brace.
Prior to that, Eusebio Di Francesco’s men were beaten 3-2 at home against Sassuolo in their opening game of the season.
