Bologna - Form Analysis: Achieving Best Result in Decades

The "Rossoblù" are a popular team, but they are generally seen as mid-table contenders, not expected to challenge for European spots. This season, they have exceeded expectations by securing a place in the top 5, ensuring a debut in the Champions League. The last time they played in a major European competition was 60 years ago in the European Cup. They are 7 points clear of Roma with two rounds remaining. They have achieved crucial results in the spring, including a victory over Roma and a decisive 2-0 win against Napoli.

Juventus - Form Analysis: Drastic Decline Since Late January

The "Old Lady" crushed Lecce 3-0 in the 21st round and were closely trailing Inter. However, after that, they managed only two league wins against Frosinone and Fiorentina. In the most recent match, Rabiot's last-minute goal salvaged a draw against bottom-side Salernitana. Their form in the cup has been better, overcoming Lazio in the semifinals and narrowly winning the final against Atalanta 1-0, likely Max Allegri's last trophy in Turin.
