LAST MEETING



November 21, 2010: Napoli 4-1 Bologna


The hosts ran rampant and wild against a shell-shocked Bologna side at the San Paolo. Christian Maggio opened the scoring two minutes into the encounter and Napoli never looked back. Marek Hamsik netted a brace and Edinson Cavani rounded things off with a goal in the 74th minute. Riccardo Meggiorini's second half strike is all that Bologna could muster.

The old warhorse just keeps on scoring. He has 19 goals on the season and two in his last two games. The 34-year-old will aim to extend his goalscoring streak on Sunday afternoon and if he does Bologna have a good shot of taking something out of the match.

M. Hamšík

Position: Midfielder

The Slovakia international netted a brace in the meeting with Bologna earlier in the season and will hope to replicate that feat on Sunday. Without Cavani in the line-up the onus will be on Hamsik to deliver.

Editor's Prediction

Bologna fell to a heavy defeat in the first fixture between the sides but they have a pretty good track record at home against Napoli and will not have to face the daunting figure of Edinson Cavani.

The hosts will hang around for the most part until the Partenopei win it late to pick up three masssive points.
