Juventus: Juve may rest some of its players after its Champions League showdown with Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, which would certainly hurt their chances of winning, but Juve’s reserves have enough talent to still win. In two meetings with Bologna this season, Juve is 2-0-0 having won both matches 2-0, with one coming in the league and another in the Coppa Italia.
Bologna: This team is on a decent little run of form, having taken four points out of a possible nine over the last three games. Bologna beat Inter, drew Genoa and just lost to Roma 2-1, showing some competitiveness that had been absent. The win over Inter was their first in Serie A since Sept. 30 of last year.
Juventus vs. Bologna prediction
With Ronaldo or not, Juve still goes on the road and earns a victory with a dominant performance filled with chances in front of goal.
