Adrien Rabiot can get in the fouls again for Juve

Paul Higham has a 17/29.50 Bet Builder treble based on fouls between Juventus and Bolonga when they meet in Serie A on Monday night.

It's been an amazing season for Bologna as they qualified for the Champions League, and they actually go into the game above Juventus on goal difference.

Juve have been stacking up draws like they're going out of fashion in Serie A of late, and with Bologna holding the league's best home defence this will be a tough game to call.

But what we can call reasonably confidently is that it could be a bit niggly with teams that give away plenty of fouls.

Leg 1: Manuel Locatelli 2+ fouls

Bologna have two of the top seven players in the fouls won standings in Serie A this season, so we'll back a pair of Juventus players to give a couple awa as a result.

Manuel Locatelli is third in the Juve squad for fouls conceded in Serie A this season - and is 10/111.91 for 2+ fouls on Monday night.

He's given away four fouls in his last three games and has three multiple foul games in his last seven.

Leg 2: Adrien Rabiot 2+ fouls

Adrien Rabiot has 50 fouls to his name this season and has at least two fouls in four of his last six outings as part of a total of 13 multiple foul games this season.

Rabiot gave away four fouls against Bologna in the reverse fixtures and can be backed at 10/111.91 for another 2+ fouls against those same opponents again.

Leg 3: Michel Aebischer 2+ fouls

We need to look at the hosts as well, and for Bologna we'll back Michel Aebischer for 2+ fouls here at 13/102.30 as he's third in the squad on fouls.

Aebischer gave away two fouls the last time he played Juventus back in August so he's a good shout to at least equal that tally on Monday.

He's also registered two fouls in three of his last six and in a defensive midfield role will be at the heart of the scrap.
