The history of direct matches played at this stadium favors the visiting team, which in the last 4 games won 2 and drew 2. However, in the last match at this stadium, in a match for the Serie A, on 06‑01‑2020, it did not go beyond of a draw by (1‑1). The goals of the game were scored by R. Orsolini (90 ‘) for Bologna and by M. Benassi (27’) for Fiorentina. The home / away condition deserves special attention, since although this is a game between 12th and 14th in the general classification, it is actually a match between the 8th classified in home games and the 18th as a visitor.

In the last, they lost away against Atalanta by (5‑0). This is a stronger team in their field, where they have won 25 points, against only 13 in their away matches. In the last 10 home matches for the championship, Bologna has recorded 4 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 16 points out of 30 possible. The team has conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition, so they haven’t been very strong defensively. In the 33 games he played in this competition, he only managed 3 twists in the 20 games in which he suffered the first goal.
Bologna comes to this game with a defeat, 5-0, on the trip to Atalanta, adding in this way the second game in a row without winning in this Italian championship. The set guided by Sinisa Mihajlovic exhibits several flaws in the style of play, especially in the defensive sector: dead balls and the attack-defense transition. Facing a much superior team, Bologna should present itself with a more cautious strategy, exploring only the counterattacks. Roberto Soriano is the club’s top scorer with 9 goals scored. For this game the home coach does not have Jerdy Schouten, punished, as well as Nicola Sansone, Mitchell Dijks, Nicolas Dominguez, Gary Medel and Hickey, these injured.
After 8 wins, 10 draws and 15 losses, the visiting team is in 14th position, having won 34 points. In the last match, they have tied (1‑1) at home against Juventus, after in the previous match they have won (1‑2) an away match against Hellas Verona. This is a team affected by the home factor, since they have won 13 points as a visitor and 20 at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 23 goals conceded at home, against 19 goals scored and 31 conceded as a visitor. In the last 10 away matches for the championship, Fiorentina has recorded 3 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, so they have won 11 points out of 30 possible. Defensive solidity has not been his strong point, as he has conceded at least one goal in each of the last 10 games, but his attack has scored regularly, as he has scored goals in 9 of the last 10 games for this competition. In 33 games in this competition, he never managed to turn the scoreboard in the 17 games in which he suffered the first goal.
Fiorentina comes for this match with an equalizer, in a ball, in the reception to Juventus, adding in this way the second consecutive encounter without losing in the Italian championship: the only goal of the team was signed by Dusan Vlahovic. In this away match, coach Giuseppe Iachini should keep the team in 3-5-2 favoring the maintenance of ball possession and organized attacks through the corridors: Franck Ribéry is a very fast and very strong player in the offensive transition. Dusan Vlahovic is Fiorentina’s top scorer with 17 goals scored. Out of this game are Borja Valero and Alexander Kokorin, both with physical problems.
