Serie A action on Saturday as Bologna and Empoli meet at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara – 3:00pm GMT.

Saturday’s clash between Bologna and Empoli, sees twelfth take on sixteenth in the League.

This season’s Serie A campaign, has so far seen Bologna achieve six points

Bologna will be buoyant, following a 2-1 home win against Fiorentina in their last fixture.

Also, Bologna seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with three draws in five meetings. With six points, they currently sit twelfth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 1 wins, 2 losses and 3 draws having won one game, drawn three games, and lost two meetings.

Bologna have won one game and drawn two matches of their three League matches at home this season.

A win in this fixture would take Bologna’s points to 9 in the League.

Bologna’s squad will likely be depleted of three of their key players when they start on Saturday, due to injury or illness.

Empoli have so far accrued four points in this season of the Serie A

Time will tell, whether Empoli’s recent run of poor form is about to change. However Paolo Zanetti will be keen to turn his season around with this game, following the recent defeat to Roma, which followed a disappointing 2-2 draw against Salernitana.

Also, Empoli are quickly becoming the Serie A’s draw specialists, having recorded four in their last five games. Now they have 0 matches won, 2 games lost and 4 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in sixteenth place, with a total of four points having drawn four matches and lost two fixtures.

Empoli will travel to Bologna with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with two draws and one defeats.

A win in this fixture, would take Empoli’s points from 4 to 7, so far this season.

Empoli may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
