BOG Vs NAP Dream11 Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: A goals galore encounter awaits us today when two flamboyant attacking sides clash heads.
After Napoli let go off Carlo Ancelotti despite him earning them qualification into the ensuing round of the Champions League, many were left bemused by a decision which lacked logic behind it. And with new leadership failing to transform the club’s form with Napoli slipping to a slew of defeats, fingers were pointed at Napoli’s inexplicable move.
However, since Serie A has returned to the land of a country ravaged by COVID, Napoli have decided to silence their naysayers in style. The side pulled its socks up, getting its house in order with the three month hiatus coming as a blessing in disguise for the side.
Ever since football has resumed in Serie A, Napoli have been one of the most pulsating teams with the side on a never ending uptick. They began by winning the prestigious Coppa Italia as they sensationally triumphed over Juventus with the club utilising the momentum garnered from that sensational win to make massive strides and climb all the way into 6th place in the league.
Unbeaten in their last three fixtures after showing pluck and grit to pull off a gusty 2-2 draw with AC Milan, Napoli are overwhelming favourites to accrue three points from this one. And we see them quenching their insatiable thirst as well today with the side managing to exploit Bologna’s stumbling backline.

BOG Vs NAP Dream11 Picks
Bologna’s Lukasz will be inducted into our Dream 11 framework as the shot stopper for the impending tie. Despite coming across an onslaught of shots today as Napoli unleash his way a carnage, the goal-keeper should manage to occult a magnitude of those to accrue up some well worked save points.
With both the sides having proved their mettle in the attacking docket of the game all across the course of the season, a cleansheet looks extremely unlikely for either side. These are not teams who prefer to pay attention to detail when it comes to the defensive ambit of the game, two teams who’ll look to thrust everything into attack.
With the likelihood of a cleansheet extremely dim, it was only rightful of us to indulge ourselves in the pick of only the three needed names needed to complete this docket. And all of them will represent Napoli with the visiting team holding a slight edge when it comes out to imbedding in a place an unlikely cleansheet.
In Giovanni di Lorenzo, Kalidou Koulibaly and Elseid Hysaj, the side at its disposal three astute defensive names, players capable of sending the home skittling today.
Although Bologna have wavered and waned in form off late with just the two wins in five matches seeing them come crashing all the way down into 10th place, the one side of their game the side has not let take a hit is the attacking facet. This is a team which has unnervingly kept its attacking acumen intact with Riccardo Orsolini having a major part to play in that narrative.
The club’s leading scorer with a staggering 8 goals and 5 assists, his panache has resulted in a pathbreaking season for him to make him the first pick from the side. He’s partnered up by Roberto Soriano with the two comprising a daunting partnership, one capable of putting the goals past any side.
Fabian Ruiz on the other hand will be our pick from Napoli. All across the course of the season, his ball handling abilities and ability to transition to turnover possession has played a quiessential role in keeping the ball moving quickly for the team, a skillset which has seen him come up with 5 assists as well.
Piotr Zielinski will be his partner for this one, two players who’ll capitalise on Bologna’s frequent capitulations in defence.
Having nonchalantly helped himself to a gargantuan 12 goals this season, Napoli’s top scorer, Arkadiusz Milik was always going to be a must have pick for us today. He’s paired alongside Lorenzo Insigne who has the 6 goals and 6 assists for the club with the two moving in tandem to help spearhead Napoli’s recovery in the league.
On the other hand, the hosts will see us venture in for the services of Rodrigo Palacio in leu of the 6 goals and 3 assists he’s ticked off to his name this season.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 12 goals for Insigne will see him lead our side out as the captain while Orsolini is the vice-captain.
