Fiorentina welcome Bologna to the Stadio Artemio Franchi in the penultimate round of the 2019/20 Serie A season, looking to extend an unbeaten run in top-flight home H2Hs to nine games (W6, D2).
A 2-1 away defeat to Roma last weekend has brought Fiorentina’s six-game unbeaten run in Serie A to a halt (W3, D3). Notably, five of those seven matches featured under 1.5 first-half goals, which has been true in 13 of their 18 home league fixtures this season. Overall, Fiorentina’s action usually sparks into life after the break, as 57.14% (52) of their 91 Serie A goals scored/conceded so far arrived in the second half of play. The hosts’ hopes of winning often vanish the moment they concede the opening goal. The ‘Viola’ failed to pull off a win in all nine of their Serie A home fixtures in which they shipped the opener (D5, L4).
On the other hand, the visitors have put an end to a five-game winless Serie A run (D2, L3) with a 3-2 home triumph over Lecce last time out. That now means that six of Bologna’s ten league fixtures post restart featured over 2.5 goals and both teams hit the net, which has been true in four of their last five Serie A trips (W2, D1, L2). Against this backdrop, all but two of their nine previous top-flight H2Hs have produced the maximum of two goals (D5, L4). Another potential worry for Sinisa Mihajlovic is that slow-start Bologna shipped the opener in 11 of 18 Serie A trips this term, subsequently losing seven of them (W4).
