Player to watch – Joshua Zirkzee

In what may be a tight game, the main goal threat may come from Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee. He moved onto 11 Serie A goals this season by scoring in the win at Roma last time out.

Zirkzee starting quickly in both halves

The 22 year old has been fast out of the blocks this season with 45% of his Serie A goals coming in either the opening 15 minutes of the First Half or the opening 15 minutes of the Second Half. He has only scored twice after the hour mark.
