Napoli vs. Bologna, Part 2By: Neil | December 19th, 2012
It’s easy to forget about the Coppa Italia in the wake of Napoli’s Serie A troubles – losing at home to Bologna and then getting docked 2 points as part of the betting scandal – but let’s not forget the Coppa was Napoli’s ticket into the Europa League’s group stage. And the way things are going again this year, it may be a better route to Europe than the league. Napoli’s Serie A form is hardly inspiring the last 10 rounds, so this match should be taken very seriously. Napoli will probably rest players anyways, while reports indicate Bologna is completely turning over their team.
Inler is suspended for the weekend game against Siena, so look for him to start and play the full match. Other than that, who knows Mazzarri’s team? Cavani probably wants to play to beat Maradona’s scoring record as quickly as possible, so there’s another starter.
Prediction: if Bologna goes with their B team they will really struggle. Napoli 2-0.
