Bologna is aiming to return to winning ways against Empoli, considering their results in the contest recently. Additionally, Bologna is coming in this match hoping for revenge, as Empoli defeated them in the reverse fixture. Bologna is actually winless in their last three matches in the contest, so they are now aiming for a different result. Empoli on the other hand is actually with the same result, including their loss against Sassuolo. Before that win, they are also winless in their last three game.

However, it is the visitors who is at a better place here.

Bologna

Serie A: Bologna

Bologna is currently sitting at the ninth of the league table with 45 points across their names. A win in this match will bring them at the eighth with an additional three points. If Bologna cannot end their winless run, it will be dangerous for them. However, although they winless in their last three matches, they only have lost to one of their last seven games. Currently, they only have a three-point lead with the team at the 13th. If that team win in their matches, Bologna will surely drop just above the drop zone. They have mixed results this season, but they are still hoping to finish at the top-half in the league table. They are from a 1-1 draw against Juventus in this match, and are looking to prove a point here.

Due to his yellow cards, Bologna will be without Georgios Kyriakopoulos, who suffers suspension here. Nicola Bagnolini, and Robert Soriano on the other hand are both unavailable, following the injuries they have. Marko Arnautovic on the other hand can possibly return in this match from his foot injury.

Empoli

Serie A: Empoli

Empoli on the other hand actually enjoyed the first half of the season, but they were not able to continue their run. Due to this, they need a win here so they could pick up points, to ensure their safety in the contest. They are currently at the 15th of the league table with 32 points. Although they are still with five point lead with the team at the drop zone, it is still not a safe lead for them. A win though could make Empoli retain their spot in the contest, but with a bigger lead. Just like their opponent, they are also without a win coming into this game, having a 2-1 loss against Sassuolo. They actually had the league on that match, but they allowed their opponents to score two late goals. With that, Empoli are hoping to bounce back in this game, so they could improve their standings.

Fortunately, their only injury concern is Koni De Winter, who is still on the side due to his knee problem.
