The Musi Volanti are in freefall after six defeats in a row and Al Hain-Cole expects them to come unstuck once again when they face Stefano Pioli's confident outfitChievo will be hoping to bring an end to a run of six consecutive defeats when they travel to the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara to face Bologna on Monday.
Giuseppe Sannino’s men currently sit rock bottom of Serie A with four points from their opening 10 games and are outsiders at 13/5 (3.60) with bet365 to move off the foot of the table with a victory.
Having failed to win any of their opening eight league fixtures, the Rossoblu recently moved out of the relegation zone with two consecutive wins, and are 21/20 (2.05) favourites to make it three in a row this evening.
The hosts have drawn five of their previous nine Serie A matches on home soil, and you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them settling for a point against their fellow strugglers.
Having been handed a difficult run of games to start the season, it was not particularly surprising to see Stefano Pioli’s men languishing in the lower regions of the table after six matches.
However, after a 4-1 thrashing at home to newly-promoted Verona and defeat at the hands of previously winless Sassuolo in the next couple of matches things were looking ominous for the northerners as they sat bottom of the pile.
The recent turnaround has therefore been quite remarkable for Piola’s side, who will be buoyant after taking maximum points from a home clash against Livorno and a difficult away trip to Cagliari without conceding a goal.
The newly-resolute hosts will be extremely confident of extending their winning streak when they welcome a visiting side with just seven goals in 10 games to their name this season, with only one of those coming in five on the road.
Having scored four without reply in their last two games, it is difficult to see Bologna having much trouble against a forlorn Chievo, and those 21/20 (2.05) odds are not to be missed on this one resulting in a home win.
