Bologna Preview

Bologna have made a decent start to life in Serie A this season. They weren't all that far ahead of the relegation spots last season, so the objective for them this season will be to pull as far away from there as possible early on. They've done a good job thus far to collect four points from two matches, but facing Napoli is a much more imposing challenge. They drew 1-1 at home to Torino to begin the Serie A season before winning 0-1 last weekend at Benevento. Godfred Donsah scored in the 55th minute, and it was enough for them to take the points back home with them. It wasn't exactly a smash and grab, but they did grind their way through the match at the end of the day to hold on and get the points.

Bologna Team News

Bologna have four injuries to account for ahead of this tough test against Napoli. Forward Felipe Avenatti, right back Vasilios Torodsidis, defensive midfielder Erick Pulgar, and attacking midfielder Cesar Falletti are all set to miss out. Center back Domenico Maietta went off early last time out as well, so he could be a doubt.

SSC Napoli Preview

Napoli have been in outstanding form so far this season, and they continue to turn heads all across Italy and Europe as a result of that kind of play. They have scored three goals in each of their two Serie A matches, both 3-1 wins against Hellas Verona and Atalanta, as well as clinching a spot in the Champions League group stages. Against Atalanta, they showed really mettle to come back after playing a poor first half. They had gone down a goal to Bryan Cristante's 15th minute finish, and that saw them settle for a one goal deficit at the half. However, they soon got the home crowd back into it as Piotr Zielinski scored after 56 minutes to equalize. Dries Mertens then took over the game, scoring the winner in the 61st minute, and then providing the third goal for Marko Rog on 87 minutes to lock up the points.

SSC Napoli Team News

Napoli will only be missing the suspended Camilo Zuniga, who has been largely out of favor anyway of late at the club.
