Player to watch – Michael Folorunsho

It hasn’t been a great season for either of these teams but the visitors will be looking for their main players to stand up here and one man that can normally be relied upon is Michael Folorunsho. The 26 year old has scored four in 33 in Serie A appearances this term from midfield.

Folorunsho striking early and late

The midfielder has chipped in with some big early and late contributions. He has scored opening goals inside the opening 20 minutes against Juventus and Lecce over the past few months while his other two goals came in the 76th and 86th minutes earlier in the campaign.
