Bologna defenders Marios Oikonomou and Emil Krafth are doubts for the weekend, both missing the draw against Chievo on Wednesday through injury.
Simone Verdi will start in attack for the home side, having scored four goals in his last eight league starts in Serie A, including an assist.
As for Fiorentina, they have no new injury worries coming into Saturday with head coach Paolo Sousa set to name an unchanged side with Cristian Tello and Khouma Babacar leading the frontline.
Paolo Sousa’s Fiorentina look to make it back-to-back wins away from home, when they take on Bologna at the Stadio Renata Dall’Ara on Saturday.
The Viola currently sit 11th in Serie A, following a disappointing 1-1 draw to bottom of the table Crotone on Wednesday night, with a one hour rain delay adding to the frustration for the Florence outfit.
Despite this, Fiorentina remain unbeaten in their last three league matches, which included an eight goal thriller away to Cagliari two weeks back, with a Nikola Kalinic hat-trick adding to an entertaining 5-3 win at the Stadio Sant’Elia.
Meanwhile, hosts Bologna head into the weekend tied on 13 points with their opponents and are also unbeaten in their last three games.
However, the Rossoblu have been extremely unlucky of late who have struggled to finish games off, having recorded three successive 1-1 draws in the league after leading in all three games.
Roberto Donadoni’s side have a good record at the Stadio Renata, with 10 points from five home matches, but they face a stern test against their weekend opponents having only picked up one win in their last five meetings.
