Team News

Genoa
Bologna
  • Aurelio Andreazzoli planned for this match by rotating his team at the weekend.
  • Cristian Zapata could be dropped after conceding a penalty and scoring an own-goal in consecutive games.
  • Mitchell Dijks is a doubt after picking up a knock at the weekend. Ladislav Krejci is ready to deputise.

Prediction

  • Genoa have played well in four matches but only picked up points in two of them. They should be rewarded in the long-term but Enrico Preziosi is not known for his patience and results will have to improve quickly.
  • Bologna suffered their first defeat of the season at the weekend but will be happy with their start to the season, which has yielded seven points from four matches.
  • Last season Genoa had the problem of creating goal-scoring opportunities, with Krzysztof Piatek bailing them many times by outscoring his expected goals in the first half of the season. Now they are able to play good football but they are struggling to put their chances away. They need to stick with it to get the rewards.
