Pippo Inzaghi confirmed he could ring the changes against Juventus in the Coppa Italia with the likes of Roberto Soriano and Nicola Sansone likely to start

Bologna are aiming to upset the odds in the Round of 16 tie on Saturday at the Stadio Dall’Ara.

“We are without Blerim Dzemaili due to a calf problem, while Adam Nagy had a knock to the knee and tweaked the meniscus, so he can be fit for next week,” explained the Coach in his Press conference via Football Italia.

“Federico Santander has inflammation and will be working on his fitness for the next game with SPAL.

“We’ll use our best players and there will be Angelo da Costa in goal. We’ve earned our chance to play this fixture and we won’t waste that opportunity.

Juventus provide a medical update on Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus have announced that Cristiano Ronaldo has sustained a "minor" thigh injury and will continue to closely monitor his progress.

“We are up against perhaps the best team in Europe right now, but we can do well.”

Bologna should give debuts to January buys Nicola Sansone and Roberto Soriano.

“The new players are in great shape and they are two players I never expected to be working with at Bologna. I thank the club for putting them at my disposal.

“It is possible both will be in the initial XI. Soriano will definitely play, with Sansone I need to decide if he plays 60 minutes or 30. Soriano becomes a trequartista in the 3-5-2 and has the characteristics to suit my football.”
