Team News

  • Antonsson and Perez are unavailable, so Taider will play in the midfield while Sorensen will partner Cherubin in defence.
  • With Taider moved to the midfield, Kone should be pretty safe to play in the supporting trio.
  • He and Diamanti may also swap positions between the right wing and the trequartista spot.
  • Pulga has his full squad available again, and he is going to make just one change to the team that started against Toro.
  • Dessena will take Ekdal's place in the middle of the field.
  • Ibarbo will play together with Sau up front, leaving out Nenè, Pinilla and Thiago Ribeiro.

Prediction

  • Bologna came back from 0-1 against Fiorentina to win and avoided being dragged towards the relegation zone. Having two consecutive matches at home could help Pioli's team stay away from the drop zone.
  • Cagliari are unbeaten since the first match of the year and will want to keep their streak alive, and may even be happy with a point here in Bologna. Winning would put them in a very strong position to achieve safety, but a draw could be enough.
  • The hosts will be in high spirits after defeating Fiorentina and will want to get more points. They will have to avoid being too offensive and allow Cagliari to counter-attack. Cagliari will probably sit and wait for the right chance to score, and having Ibarbo on the field could help to spring defence into attack quickly.
