Bologna continue impressive Serie A home form with draw against stuttering Juventus

Bologna have been enjoying a great season of home form in Serie A, particularly against the big sides, and it continued on Matchday 32 against Juventus.

Bologna have proven to be one of the most interesting teams in Serie A this season, which is some going considering there has been sustained drama up and down the table throughout the campaign.

Whilst a place in one of the European competitions still seems to be a fanciful dream for this season, the Rossoblu are certainly ending the campaign as one of the best teams in the league. That is predominantly down to the fact that Thiago Motta’s side are very hard to beat at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara right now.

The latest team to fall at the Dall’Ara was Juventus on Matchday 32 as they tried to bounce back from three successive Serie A defeats. With the Champions League qualification race being so competitive, that is the sort form that can prove fatal at this stage in a campaign.

Bologna perform at home again

For a team that are generally floating in mid-table or even flirting with a relegation scrap, the fact that Bologna have lost just three home games all season so far is an incredible achievement.

Only Juventus, Napoli, AC Milan and Udinese can better that record, each losing just twice at home. Having enjoyed seven wins at home, they have drawn the other seven. That form means they are seventh in the home Serie A table and are just two points off of Lazio in sixth.

Recently under Thiago Motta, that home form has included draws against Milan and Lazio, as well as a win over Simone Inzaghi’s Inter. That is a job that Motta has been linked with a lot and his ability to get points in big games will be appreciated.

Juventus’ Champions League charge stutters

Before Juventus had their 15-point penalty suspended, the Bianconeri were putting together an impressive second half of the season that showed, whilst not engaging to watch, that they are the third-best team in the league, possibly even second after Lazio’s recent wobble.

Being propelled back into the top four has coincided with a drop in form for Juventus which has seen them lose three Serie A games in a row before drawing 1-1 with Bologna on Matchday 32. It is fair to point out that two of those losses were against Lazio and Napoli, but it is nonetheless a concerning dip in form for Massimiliano Allegri who is looking more and more animated every time he is on the touchline.
