Napoli will welcome Bologna to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Serie A action on Sunday.

The hosts have got off to a flying start in the 2022-23 campaign and are undefeated across all competitions. They overcame Cremonese 4-1 in their previous outing, extending their winning run in Serie A to five games. With a 4-2 win over Rangers in the UEFA Champions League, they are now on a nine-game winning run across all competitions.

Bologna have just one win to their name this season and are winless in their last three league outings. They avoided defeat in their previous outing as they held last-placed Sampdoria to a 1-1 draw at home.

Napoli are two points clear at the top of the table, while Bologna are struggling in 17th place.
