Empoli-Bologna, the probable formations

Empoli and Bologna will face each other in Thursday evening’s 33rd Serie A match. Kickoff at 8:45 p.m. at the Carlo Castellani. The hosts will want to break the streak of three consecutive defeats, while the Felsini will want to give continuity to the draw with Juventus in the previous round.

Zanetti should confirm from 1′ the Caputo-Cambiaghi offensive tandem, with Baldanzi at the back. In midfield, trust Akpa Akpro, Marin and Bandinelli. Thiago Motta, on the other hand, should confirm most of the starting eleven that took the field against the Bianconeri. In attack, the trident Barrow-Orsolini-Ferguson is likely to be confirmed, while on the left flank Cambiaso will replace the disqualified Kyriakopoulos.

Probable formations

EMPOLI (4-3-1-2): Vicario; Ebuehi, Ismajli, Luperto, Parisi; Akpa Akpro, Marin, Bandinelli; Baldanzi; Cambiaghi, Caputo. All. Zanetti

BOLOGNA (4-3-3): Skorupski; Posch, Soumaoro, Lucumì, Cambiaso; Moro, Schouten, Dominguez; Orsolini, Barrow, Ferguson. All. Motta
