Bologna and Fiorentina will lock horns with Fiorentina with each other at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara in Serie A this week. The match between Thiago Motta’s side and Vincenzo Italiano’s team is scheduled to kick off at 6 pm UK time on Wednesday. 

Bologna

Bologna are a modest club in Serie A who tend to just make up the numbers in Serie A. I Felsinei finished ninth in the league table last season, and it was indeed a great campaign for them. The big thing is that Fiorentina could do even better this time around.

Thiago Motta’s side are fifth in the Serie A table at the moment with 39 points from 23 matches. Bologna are only three points behind fourth-placed Atalanta. As unlikely as it may seem, I Rossoblu could end up in the UEFA Champions League places in the Serie A table this season.

Bologna will head into the Serie A match against Fiorentina at home on the back of a 4-0 victory over Lecce in front of their fans. It came after a 4-2 victory over Sassuolo in the league which came after a 2-2 draw with AC Milan away from home in Serie A.

Team News:

Bologna are likely to line up in a 4-1-4-1 formation against Fiorentina. Lukasz Skorupski is likely to start in goal for Bologna and will have Stefan Posch, Sam Beukema, Riccardo Calafiori and Victor Kristiansen in front of him in defence. Remo Freuler will be the holding midfielder for the home team. Riccardo Orsolini, Giovanni Fabbian, Lewis Ferguson and Alexis Saelemaekers will be the four attacking midfielders. Joshua Zirkzee will lead the line for Bologna.

Fiorentina

Fiorentina are one of the biggest and most historic clubs in Serie A who always aim to qualify for the European places in the league table. I Gigliati ended up as high as eighth in the Serie A table last season, and they could potentially finish in the UEFA Champions League places.

Vincenzo Italiano’s side are seventh in the Serie A table at the moment with 37 points from 23 matches. Fiorentina are only five points Atalanta in fourth. There is still a very good chance that I Viola could end up in the UEFA Champions League places in the league table this season.

Fiorentina will head into the Serie A match against Bologna away from home on Wednesday evening on the back of a 5-1 victory over Frosinone in Serie A. It came after a 3-2 defeat to Lecce on the road in the league which came after a 1-0 loss to Inter Milan in front of their fans in Serie A.

Fiorentina are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Bologna. Pietro Terracciano will be in goal and will have Michael Kayode, Nikola Milenkovic, Lucas Martínez Quarta and Cristiano Biraghi in front of him in defence. Alfred Duncan and Rolando Mandragora will be the two holding midfielders. Andrea Belotti will lead the line for Fiorentina and will have Jonathan Ikone, Lucas Beltran and Nicolas Gonzalez behind him in attacking midfield.
