Teams: Bologna and Chievo

TV Info: Ten Sports Network has the rights to stream Serie A matches in India. Fans can also catch the action live on SonyLiv App as well.
The table shows that this is a game between two teams lying in the bottom three. So in a sense, it’s a very important fixture for both the teams, a possible six-pointer at this stage in the season.
But the picture is far more different, for only one team has a realistic chance of saving their season. That team is Bologna.
The hosts are 3rd from the bottom as things stand in Serie A. However, only one point separates them from the safety. So it’s not all doom and gloom and the season can still be saved. Bologna can still earn the top-flight status for the next season.
However, Bologna’s position on the table is not a good indicator of their form. It’s far better than it was at any stage in the season. In the last four match, they have recorded three wins, moving just one point adrift of the safety.
Interestingly, those three wins are 50% of Bologna’s total number of victories in the season.
While Chievo are almost pushing a wall these days. The league situation is almost out of their hand or will be in the immediate future. As things stand in Serie A, they are a huge 17 points behind the safety.
With just seven games remaining in the regular season and considering Chievo’s form, they will most probably be playing in the Serie B next season.
