Draw or Bologna double chance to win @ 5/6

Bologna have been one of the surprise packages in Serie A this season, sitting firmly in the race for the top four after a very solid campaign.

The struggles of defending champions Napoli among other big names means that the Red and Blues have a very solid chance of securing Champions League football for next season.

They face a tough challenge here however, as they take on an Atalanta side who are one of their main rivals for a European berth.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have been solid on home soil this term but will be reeling after a 4-0 defeat against Inter last time out.

The hosts may also have one eye on their Europa League round-of-16 matchup against Sporting on Wednesday and look worth taking on.

Only the top two have lost fewer games than Bologna’s four this season and they are capable of avoiding defeat again in this clash.

Joshua Zirkee to score at any time @ 13/5

Joshua Zirkee has been one of Bologna’s best players this season, scoring 10 times in all competitions, and he looks a value selection to get on the scoresheet here.

The Dutch youngster looks like the main threat for the visitors. He netted in their last away game and will be hoping to take advantage of an Atalanta back line who conceded four goals against Inter last time out.
