Team News

Napoli
Bologna
  • Vlad Chiriches is the only unavailable player for Maurizio Sarri, who will finally be able to field Emanuele Giaccherini.
  • The Italian international should start on the bench given the good form of José Callejon and Dries Mertens.
  • Ângelo Da Costa will once again be in goal given the unavailability of both Antonio Mirante and Alfred Gomis.
  • Mattia Destro is expected to play despite a minor muscular problem. Sergio Floccari is getting ready just in case.

Prediction

  • Napoli are on a three-game winning streak and even secured a morale-boosting comeback win in the Champions League in midweek. The confidence gained could get them through their next few fixtures.
  • Bologna have earned six points in three games, and even though they cannot match Napoli's strength they can cause some problems in the San Paolo.
  • Roberto Donadoni will surely make some tactical adjustments to help his team survive as long as possible in Naples, but the hosts are expected to win this with some margin.

  • Destro won't be playing, he's injured. There will be Federico Di Francesco instead of him, Sassuolo's coach son.

  • When Bologna integrate Viviani they will be comfortable. This could be a heavy defeat though. 4-0.
