Sinisa Mihajlovic has the chance to guide Bologna to their first win over Juventus in over 10 years this afternoon.



The 52-year-old Serbian coach, who was once close to taking charge of the Old Lady a few years ago, has already overseen seven victories this season, with notable successes including a 1-0 win over Roma and a 3-0 triumph over Lazio.

This afternoon’s match against Juventus may be the Rossoblu’s best chance for a win over the Bianconeri for the first time since the 2010/11 season, when they beat Juventus 2-0 away in February 2011.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side have had a disappointing first half of the season, dropping points on nine occasions already with four losses and five draws.

Juventus have struggled against provincial sides this campaign, with a 2-1 loss to Hellas Verona and 1-0 loss to Empoli emblematic of the team’s struggles following the departure of star forward Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer.

With talismanic forward Paulo Dybala and electric winger Federico Chiesa both out, today’s match could be Bologna’s best chance to pick up all three points against the Bianconeri for the first time in a decade.
