🗞️ Team News: Bologna
In all likelihood, Rossoblu will probably go for a 3-5-2 system for the game featuring Lukasz Skorupski, Kevin Bonifazi, Adama Soumaoro, Arthur Theate, Lorenzo De Silvestri, Roberto Soriano, Nicolas Dominguez, Mattias Svanberg, K. Dogo Michael, Nicola Sansone and Marko Arnautovic.
📰 Team News: Napoli
Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Adam Ounas (Ankle problems), David Ospina (Calf Injury), Lorenzo Insigne (Tear in the abductor muscle) and Victor Osimhen (Cheekbone Fracture) are not ready for selection.
We are inclined to think that Partenopei might utilise a 4-2-3-1 system, going with Alex Meret, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Amir Rrahmani, Juan Jesus, Faouzi Ghoulam, Stanislav Lobotka, Diego Demme, Matteo Politano, Dries Mertens, Elif Elmas and Andrea Petagna.
We’re of the opinion that Bologna will need to push hard to see themselves scoring against this SSC Napoli outfit who we reckon will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore anticipating a narrow 0-1 winning margin for SSC Napoli at the end of the match.
