Donadoni's men may be taken to extra time here.
Bologna's lack of goals will give hope to Serie B outfit Verona.
These two are familiar foes who were facing one another last season. This match will be close once again.
Bet365 make Bologna 5/4 with Verona priced at 11/5. The draw is 9/4
Bologna easily swept aside struggling Palermo the last time they played at home, but outside of that success, they've failed to score in three of the last four games. Faced with a compact and well-organised defence, they have trouble breaking them down and the goals often dry up.
They began the season with three successive victories here, beating (current bottom club) Crotone and away strugglers Cagliari and Sampdoria. They've lost three of the subsequent five matches here and drawn one.
They were successful in the previous round of the competition in front of their fans beating Trapani 2-0, but the Serie B side are having a disastrous season fighting off relegation.
The hosts are in fairly safe territory sat in 14th in Serie A, but with just 4 wins from 14, there is plenty of room for improvement. They have a healthy 9 point advantage over the bottom three and have signifcantly more quality than them.
They will be fairly solid here, but Verona are flying high in Serie B and have got back on track after a small wobble.
After appearing invincible for the majority of the season, Verona collapsed conceding 4 to Novara and then 5 at Cittadella. Now, that is a blip! They bounced back at the weekend with a victory and a clean sheet against Bari.
They are familiar with Bologna from their spell in Serie A and will be aiming to reach the top flight once again. They lead the way in the second tier and will be confident of stretching a Bologna side that look there for the taking.
