Napoli vs Bologna live stream & team news: How to watch Serie A online

Published: 11:38, 27 October 2021

Napoli will be looking to return to the top of the Serie A table when they host Bologna on Thursday at 7:45pm (UK time).

Luciano Spalletti’s side are one of two teams still unbeaten in the Italian top flight, winning eight and drawing one of their opening nine matches (losing their perfect start just last weekend). But they were overtaken by AC Milan who have already played this gameweek, so will need to win to move back to the top. They face ninth-placed Bologna who are without a win in two Serie A matches and have also won just one of their past six.

Napoli vs Bologna previous line-ups and team news:

  • Napoli (vs Roma): Ospina; Di Lorenzo, Koulibaly, Rrahmani, Rui; Zielinski, Fabian, Anguissa; Politano, Osimhen, Insigne.
  • Bologna (vs AC Milan): Skorupski; Medel, Soumaoro*, Theate; De Silvestri, Svanberg, Dominguez, Hickey; Soriano*, Barrow; Arnautovic.

Napoli remain without Kostas Manolas, Adam Ounas and Kevin Malcuit but could also rotate after Sunday’s game. Bologna will be without Roberto Soriano and Adama Soumaoro both of whom were sent off against AC Milan, while Nicolas Viola and Kevin Bonifazi are injured. Marko Arnautovic is also a doubt.
