Napoli vs Bologna prediction and betting tips - May 11, 2024

Location: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona
Match date: 11.05.2024

In the 36th round of Serie A in Italy on May 11, 2024, Napoli and Bologna will play a match. The former champions only have theoretical chances of making it to European competitions. Meanwhile, the visitors have already secured a place in the Champions League and may aim for the "bronze."

Key statistics and trends:

  • Napoli has not won in their last 4 home matches and has earned only 3 points.
  • Bologna has not lost away since January 14th when they were defeated by Cagliari.
  • The most common scoreline between Napoli and Bologna is 1-2 (occurred 5 times).
  • Both Napoli and Bologna have scored 29% of their goals between the 76th and 90th minutes.

Napoli - Form analysis: another coaching change brings little improvement

"Partenopei" underwent another coaching change before the start of the Champions League playoffs. Madzari, who quickly replaced the disappointing Rudy Garcia in the fall, gave way to Calzone. However, Calzone failed to advance Napoli past Barcelona in the Euro arena (1-1, 0-2) and couldn't improve their Serie A standing. After their victory over Juventus in March, they only managed to win against Monza, drawing in all other matches - such a record makes European competition uncomfortable to discuss. Even against Udinese in the previous round, they settled for a draw.

Bologna - Form analysis: the end of their best season in decades is proving challenging

"Rossoblu" surprised everyone by solidifying their position in the group of leaders and holding onto these positions persistently. However, in recent rounds, they only managed to defeat Roma, their direct pursuer, away. Before that, they had goalless draws with Frosinone and Monza, followed by a 1-1 draw with Udinese. They failed to score against Torino but also didn't concede in their own goal.
