12th day of Serie A: the last training on the teams, directly from our correspondents from the fields.
After the fourth day of international cups and on the eve of the third break for the national teams of the season, Serie A lives its 12th round: it begins tonight with the Emilia derby between Sassuolo and Bologna, an inevitable conclusion Sunday evening, when at Allianz Stadium of Pioli will arrive in Turin. Here are the probable formations of Sassuolo-Bologna (live TV starting at 8.45 pm on Sky) thanks to the contribution of all the journalists of TuttoMercatoWeb.com scattered throughout Italy:
HOW THE SASSUOLO COMES – Still to evaluate the conditions of Ciccio Caputo, called but still not at his best after the blow remedied with Fiorentina. The former Empoli seems to have a slight advantage in the run-off with Defrel. De Zerbi could confirm the 4-2-3-1, with Berardi, Djuricic and Boga behind the point. Mandatory choices in defense, with Marlon (still in doubt) paired with Peluso and Toljan-Kyriakopoulos on the wings. In midfield absent the disqualified Obiang, the pair in front of the defense will be formed by Duncan and Magnanelli.
HOW BOLOGNA ARRIVES – Many absences at Bologna. To the unavailable Dijks, Tomiyasu and Destro have also added Soriano and Santander, who have not recovered from their ailments suffered against Cagliari. In defense forced choices, Mbaye and Krejci on the wings and the Danilo-Bani couple in the center of the defense. Medel is back in midfield, with Poli favorite on Dzemaili. In front of Sansone the only striker, supported behind by the trio composed of Orsolini, Svanberg (even if the same Dzemaili could play more advanced) and Sansone.
