Our free betting tip for Sunday, December 5, 2021 comes from the Italian Seria A’s lunch time fixture with the derby between Bologna and Fiorentina. Both sides have exceeded expectations and have been produced some fine performances this season. These are two fun to watch, attacking sides. Oddly enough, Bologna and Fiorentina are level on points with 24, but Fiorentina are sixth on goal difference while Bologna are eight.
Bologna Team News
Sinisa Mihajlovic has a nearly fully fit squad to choose from. The only absentee, albeit a big one, is Arnautovic who misses out after suffering an injury in the 1-0 win against Roma midweek.
Still, Bologna have some reliable players up front, such as Barrow, Orsolini, Sansone, Skov Olsen, and they are playing at home, so they should have enough to score at least once here.
Fiorentina Team News
All the important players are available for Fiorentina for today’s game against Bologna. Obviously, when we talk about La Viola and their chances to get points, tha main focus is on the Seribian sensation, forward Dusan Vlahovic. He is really turning into a super star. The only major blow for Fiorentina is that he has decided not to renew his contract, so he is about to leave the club this summer, for free. That would be a major loss for the club, as they will not only lose their best player, but they will also lose out on a hefty transfer fee that would have been over 50 million euro. I really don’t understand why a player would do that to a club that has helped him evolve and turn into a star.
But, back to today’s game, in my view, Fiorentina have more than enough right now to cause serious problems to Bologna. Torrerira and Duncan in midfield along with the spark from Bonaventura. Pulgar is another battling midfielder that could feature. Biraghi is one of the best left backs in the Italian Seria A, always looking to cause trouble with his excellent crosses for Vlahovic. Up front, Gonzales and Callejon will be tearing up Bologna’s flanks in support of the Serbian star man.
