Thiago Motta and Jose Mourinho
To give substance to the reasons for attention for Bologna-Roma are essentially the (last) hopes of conquest of the Champions Zone by the Giallorossi. The hosts, in fact, are firmly on the left side of the standings, in the group of five teams at 46 points, behind the same formation of Mourinho who now occupies the Conference placement at + 12 from the Felsinei.
The visitors are still confident of reaching fourth place but must also be careful of the fatigue of the Europa League in the legs (after the home victory against Bayer Leverkusen in the semi-final first leg). Open game with the Giallorossi always in emergency due to injuries.
