The very popular Sinisa Mihajlovic thus fulfilled the promise that he had given his team. The Serbian coach is popular with players, fans and the media alike, which is why his illness caused a great public outcry.

Genoa – Statistics & Current Form
After the English week it is time to draw a first interim conclusion of the still young Serie A season. The wafer-thin shuddering relegation in the preseason should have been a warning to the club.
After a good preparation with some strong results, the competitive match was also promising. A clear cup victory against the division club, Imolese, a 3: 3 draw in the capital of AS Roma and a home win against Fiorentina – much better it could not run.
But what followed was the international break, a Testspielpleite against Virtus Entella and then two bankruptcies in the league against Bergamo and Cagliari. While the defeat at Champions League participants was still to get over, so the team of coach Andreazzoli at 1: 3 from the weekend to nibble more. Striker Cristian Kouame rewarded the visitors with his third goal of the season in the 83rd minute for a courageous performance after the break and scored the 1: 1.
Just four minutes later, Cagliari drew 3-1 and the visitors almost conceded two goals. In particular, the 1: 3 was a real slapstick deposit of the central defender. For the upcoming home game, the clear route is that the defensive stability must be restored. Genoa have met in all four games this season but have conceded at least one goal.
This is already a clear indication that there is a tip on the selection “Both teams to score“ between Genoa and Bologna in the shortlist. Personally, Andreazzoli will not change much during the English week, unless a player indicates physical deficits.

➤ Radu – Birashi, Zapata, Criscito – Ankersen, Beautiful, Radavanovic, Pajac – Saponara, Kouame, Favilli

Bologna – Statistics & Current Form
The season of the visiting team is quite similar to that of the upcoming opponent. Also at Bologna, the start went very well with a cup victory and seven points from three games. However, the weekend was followed by the first setback, which was very bitter at a closer look.
Against AS Roma Nicola Sansone scored in the 54th minute, the 1-1 draw. When shortly before the end of the game with the Romans Mancini was directed with a yellow-red card of the field, it looked as if at least the one point against the top team secured.
But once again it was superstar Edin Dzeko, who silenced the stadium in the 94th minute and made the golden goal for the away win of his team. Coach Mihajlovic certainly does not have to tell his charges about “mentality” and his players will be fighting for their sick head coach again from Wednesday on.
If you look at the list of injuries, you can still find only the name Danilo. The 35-year-old Brazilian is thus the only player who is not operational on Wednesday. At the starting lineup will not change much after the overall successful performance against Roma.
In addition, the guests build on their away strength. Up to now, three wins and two draws have been won in three foreign matches. With these numbers, it is not surprising that between Genoa and Bologna the odds for the away win and the double chance X / 2 are a hot iron in the fire.
