The Rossoblu have struggled to come alive this season and are one of six teams without a win in Serie A this season. They were held to a 2-2 draw by Spezia last time out, prompting the dismissal of manager Sinisa Mihajlovic at the helm after three and a half years in charge.
Bologna sit 16th in the league table with just three points from five games this season. They will be looking to pick up their first league win of the season this weekend.
Fiorentina have not fared much better than their weekend opponents, falling off the pace after a positive start to their season. They have played out back-to-back 1-1 draws in their last two outings, first against Juventus in the league and then against Rigas Futbola in the UEFA Europa Conference League. They deserved to win both games but were guilty of wasteful finishing.
The away side sit 11th in the Serie A standings with six points from five games and will now be looking to return to winning ways this Sunday.

Fiorentina have also drawn the last two games and are winless in their last six games across all competitions. Neither side are in encouraging form and they could split the points this weekend.
