Serie A | Bologna FC VS Udinese Calcio; Sunday, 28 April at 21:00 GMT +8

Bologna is close to achieving their dream of playing in the elite European competition after Serie A secured a spot in the Champions League. With five rounds remaining, Bologna is eight points ahead of sixth-placed Atalanta. Thiago Motta’s team has won five games without a defeat, including a 3-1 win against AS Roma.

Udinese, a Serie A club for 29 years, are currently one position above the drop zone after 33 league rounds. To avoid relegation, they need to perform well in the coming weeks. They lost three consecutive games and faced AS Roma in a previously abandoned game due to Evan Ndicka’s health concerns. The defeat pushed Udinese closer to relegation.

Bologna manager Thiago Motta will not be featuring Adama Soumaoro, Jens Odgaard, and Lewis Ferguson due to injuries. Rossoblu is suggested to play in a 4-3-3 formation with Lukasz Skorupski, Stefan Posch, Jhon Lucumi, Sam Beukema, and Riccardo Calafiori.

Udinese manager Gabriele Cioffi faces reduced team options due to injuries to Gerard Deulofeu, Enzo Ebosse, Florian Thauvin, Sandi Lovric, and Lautaro Giannetti. Bianconeri Friuliani may start with a 3-4-2-1 formation, sending out players like Maduka Okoye, Christian Kabasele, Jaka Bijol, Thomas Kristensen, Kingsley Ehizibue, and Roberto Pereyra.

Predicted lineups:


Goalkeeper: Lukasz Skorupski
Defenders: Stefan Posch, Jhon Lucumi, Sam Beukema, Riccardo Calafiori
Midfielders: Remo Freuler, Oussama El Azzouzi, Michel Aebischer
