Bologna host Fiorentina in a Sunday lunchtime kick-off in Serie A with both teams looking to build on a string of impressive showings this season. A closely fought contest is expected here but given Fiorentina's poor record on the road, Bologna will fancy their chances of coming out on top.

There is plenty of belief and optimism around Bologna this season. Sinisa Mihailovic’s men have made a solid start to the campaign. They have suffered just three defeats in 15 matches this term and are just six points off the UEFA Champions League places.

Bologna are getting better as the season progresses and head into Sunday’s clash with four wins from their last five matches. They earned a 1-0 victory over Roma in midweek with Mattias Svanberg’s first half effort proving to be the difference.

Although they have shown plenty of attacking quality this season, Bologna’s recent form has been built on a solid defence which has kept clean sheets in their last two matches.

Fiorentina were also victorious in their midweek Serie A fixture, beating Fiorentina 3-1 on Tuesday. They fought back from a goal down with efforts from Jose Callejon, Dusan Vlahovic and Riccardo Scottil sealing the win.

La Viola have won eight of their last 15 Serie A matches so far. They currently occupy the final European slot but with the likes of Juventus, Lazio and Bologna closely following, they could drop as low as ninth if results do not go their way.

While Fiorentina’s performances this season have brought a lot of optimism, their form on their travels still needs some improvement. Vincenzo Italiano’s men have lost their last four away matches and were beaten 2-1 by Empoli in their previous fixture in the road.
