BOG vs FIO Dream11: Fiorentina go into season's first Derby dell’Appennino against Bologna at Renato Dall'Ara looking to extend its unbeaten run in this fixture to 11 games. But Bologna, who are hosts, will see this as a perfect opportunity to end seven years of obscurity, as the visitors are not only on a bad run, but they are also under new management. Giuseppe Iachini is the manager of Fiorentina now, replacing wholly ineffective Vincenzo Montella at the hot seat.
Bologna went into the winter break with three wins in four games and doubled their wins for the season. They are 11th on the table but could finish as high as 8th with a win in this game.
Fiorentina manager Iachini needs to hit the ground running from the off, for the La Viola are only three points above the relegation zone heading into this game.
