JUV vs BOG Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The football action returns to Italy with the Coppa Italia s Bologna welcome defending champions Juventus for the round-of-16 match at Renato Dall’Ara, in Bologna, on Saturday night (IST).
The hosts will hope to change their fortunes in the cup competition. But the task is huge as they face perhaps the biggest obstacle in their pursuit as Juventus come to the city to face Bologna. This is not the ideal fixture for any team in Italian football aiming for a positive result. But the hosts have to make do and would wish the nature of the cup competition takes over this fixture.
The Red and Blues are struggling for form and consistency in Serie A this season. At the moment, they are 18th in the table, three points adrift of safety. What’s more concerning for Bologna and their fans is that they have won just twice in the league in the first half of the season. They are struggling almost in every department, scoring the joint third most goals this season.
Also, the hosts haven’t won since September in the league with their only win coming in this competition, a 3-0 win over Crotone. Can they turn the tide in their favour in this game?
The Old Lady has enjoyed an almost perfect ride in the domestic competition, with no obstacle looking big enough to stop them at the moment. They are at the top, a huge 9 points better than 2nd placed Napoli. And the icing on the cake is their unbeaten start to the season, 17 wins and 2 draws from the first 19 games of the season.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s inclusion has given them an aura of invincibility. The Portuguese superstar’s presence on the field is too daunting for most of the teams, and he is the key to why the Juve have accumulated the most points at this stage than any of their past 7 title-winning seasons.
This is the first time that the Bianconeri will be returning to the action in 2019 and what’s better to do that than a trip to the struggling Bologna. Last time around, Massimiliano Allegri’s men won against Sampdoria in the league and extended their lead at the top to nine points.
