The Bologna team will challenge the Napoli team in a Matchday 5 Serie A Italy in Renato Dall’Ara Stadium, Bologna on Sunday, September 24, 2023. For streaming coverage of Bologna vs Napoli, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Bologna will host Napoli at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Sunday (24/9) afternoon in the continuation of the Italian League, Serie A 2023/24. This is an interesting match between two teams who have had different starts to the season.
Bologna is currently in ninth place in the standings with seven points from four matches. They are unbeaten in all competitions this season, but have only won once. The win was hard-fought as they beat Cagliari 2-1 with a late goal from Roberto Soriano on 2/9.
Napoli, on the other hand, are in fifth place with seven points too, but with a better goal difference. They have just achieved an important victory in the Champions League by beating Sporting Braga 2-1 in Portugal thanks to goals from Victor Osimhen and Lorenzo Insigne. The victory was a breath of fresh air for Napoli after they only drew and lost their previous two matches.
Last season, the two teams drew 2-2 at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara. The goals for Bologna were scored by Musa Barrow and Rodrigo Palacio, while for Napoli they were scored by Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Matteo Politano. However, if you look at the previous meeting record, Napoli is superior with 21 wins from 38 matches, while Bologna only won 11 times.
Bologna will be without Alexis Saelemaekers and Adama Soumaoro who are still injured. Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic will likely use a 4-2-3-1 formation with Barrow as the spearhead. On the other hand, Napoli will also lose Diego Demme and Amir Rrahmani who are injured. Pierluigi Gollini, who missed the Champions League due to personal problems, is still uncertain about being able to feature.
Interestingly, there is a player who deserves attention in this match, namely Kvaratskhelia. The Georgian was Napoli’s best player last season with 14 goals and 14 assists in all competitions. However, this season he has not scored any goals and has only had one assist. Coach Rudi Garcia hopes to maximize Kvaratskhelia’s potential by giving him more space to dribble and shoot.
The Bologna vs Napoli match is a difficult one to predict. Bologna have home advantage and an unbeaten record, but Napoli have better quality and high motivation after winning in the Champions League. However, Napoli have the spirit of the defending champions so they might be able to get three points tonight.
