Serie A live: Hellas Verona vs. Bologna

by | Jan 21, 2022 18:52

Igor Tudor looks to Diego Simeone, Gianluca Caprari and Antonin Barak, against Nicola Sansone’s Bologna.

It kicks off at 19.45 UK time.

Pawel Dewidowicz and Gianluca Frabotta are still injured.

Federico Ceccherini is not 100%, but the former Fiorentina defender starts at centre-back while Ivan Ilic returns after a one-match ban.

Prolific Verona had never scored 41 goals in the opening 22 Serie A games before. Caprari, Simeone and Barak have already scored at least seven each.

A long list of absentees for Bologna with Jerdy Schouten, Lorenzo De Silvestri, Kingsley and Federico Santander out of action while Musa Barrow and Ibrahima Mbaye at on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Adana Soumaoro is suspended, so Kevin Bonifazi replaces him.

Marko Arnautovic will not start up front as he is not fully fit. The former Inter striker has scored six goals in 19 Serie A games this season, but the last time he found the net was on November 28 against Spezia.
