Bologna vs Napoli: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online – Serie A 2023/24

Napoli have dropped points in their last two Serie A matches but after a Champions League win, they will arrive in Bologna wanting to make up for lost time.


Napoli will be eager to return to winning ways after dropping points in their last two Serie A fixtures when they travel up to Bologna this Sunday evening.

Prior to the international break, Rudi Garcia‘s side were beaten 2-1 at the Diego Armando Maradona by Lazio, despite boasting 22 shots to six. Frustrations continued for the Azzurri, when they drew 2-2 last time out in Serie A action away at Genoa, where goals from Giacomo Raspadori and Matteo Politano rescued a late point.

As for Bologna, they will be hoping to find the back of the net this Sunday, following Monday’s 0-0 draw away at Hellas Verona. The Gialloblu currently sit 9th in the Serie A standings, with two wins from four games.
