Players to Watch
Marco Di Vaio
Marco Di Vaio
Position: Striker
Squad Number: 9
Games Goals YC RC
0 0 0 0
The ageless striker still has plenty of petrol left in the tank as evidenced by his 17 Serie A goals this season. Is likely to cause the Genoa back line all sorts of problems on Sunday afternoon.
Rodrigo Palacio
Rodrigo Palacio
Position: Striker
Squad Number: 8
Games Goals YC RC
37 17 3 0
The Argentine attacker leads Genoa in scoring and will need to add to his tally if they hope to earn a positive result at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara.
Expect some goals in this encounter with Bologna squeaking out a slim victory thanks to their talisman Marco Di Vaio.
