Serie A 2022-23
Napoli are currently leading Serie A with 23 points, and in recent years the club has lacked stability throughout the tournament.
The club also has success in the Champions League, where the team secured a place in the playoffs by defeating Ajax (4-2) at home.
This season, Napoli scores a lot, in the national championship, for 9 rounds, they managed to score 22 goals, and concede only 7.
The last round in Serie A turned out to be very successful for the hosts, as there was a victory over Cremenese with a score (4-1), before that there was success in the match with Torino (3-1).
Bologna, meanwhile, is having a difficult season and after 9 matches they are in 17th place with 7 points, 2 points behind the relegation zone.
The main problem of the team is a weak attack. Still, 8 goals scored in 9 matches is an indicator of problems with implementation.
As you know, Bologna had an unsuccessful last match. At home, the team was unable to defeat Sampdoria, having played in a draw (1-1).
