• Napoli have won the last two Serie A meetings against Bologna (both 3-0), after losing the previous two.

    The two sides have swapped victories in the last six meetings at the Renato Dall'Ara – the Azzurri succeded in the last clash back in May.

    Bologna and Napoli haven’t drawn at the Dall’Ara since May 1989 (1-1): since then, there have been six wins for the hosts and four for the guests.

    Bologna have won only one of their last nine Serie A matches, losing four and drawing four.

    The Emiliani have scored only one goal in their last five league fixtures.

    Napoli are unbeaten in their last six league matchdays (four wins, two draws) keeping a clean sheet in the last two.

    The Partenopei have picked up 19 points from away games in this Serie A, fewer only than Juventus (25).

    The Azzurri have scored the most first half goals this season in Serie A (24).

    Five Napoli’s players have already scored at least five goals in this league campaign (Higuaín, Callejón, Pandev, Hamsik and Mertens) – a record so far this season.

    Lorenzo Insigne’s goal against Verona was Napoli’s first goal scored by an Italian player in this Serie A.

    Alessandro Diamanti has won the most fouls in this league, 74.

    Marek Hamsik has scored six goals in 10 Serie A appearances against Bologna (including three in the last two) – only against Palermo has he bagged more in the top-flight (7).
