Napoli vs Bologna Preview: Where to Watch, Live Stream, Kick Off Time & Team News… Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli return to league action this weekend, welcoming the visit of Bologna to the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday after earning a credible 1-1 draw against Liverpool in the Champions League at Anfield on Wednesday night.
Dries Mertens had the Italians in front on Merseyside, but Dejan Lovren’s second-half header pegged them back and extended the Azzurri’s winless streak to seven games.
However, Ancelotti’s men will be favourites to return to winning ways this weekend against a Bologna side who have lost three of their last four Serie A encounters.
The Rossoblu are in lowly fifteenth position in the league standings, only three points above the relegation zone.

Carlo Ancelotti is likely to be without star man and skipper Lorenzo Insigne, who is struggling to recover from the elbow injury that saw him miss his side’s midweek trip to Anfield.
Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik continues sidelined with a muscle injury he sustained in early November, which has seen him miss the last three games.
Full backs Kévin Malcuit and Faouzi Ghoulam are also absentees, with the former not expected back this season after rupturing a cruciate knee ligament in October.
As for the away side, Bologna continue without striker Mattia Destro leading the line and midfielder Roberto Soriano is missing with a knee injury.
Centre forward Federico Santander and left-back Mitchell Dijks are also absent for the visitors.
