Roberto Soriano – The Italian international has been great for Bologna this season. He has 9 goals and 6 assists in Serie A. Soriano has also completed 58 chances, attempted 19 shots on target and succeeded in 36 dribbles (65% completion rate). The versatile midfielder will be the biggest threat for Verona.

He has created 28 chances, attempted 17 shots on target and succeeded in 26 dribbles (63% completion rate). He also managed to assist the equalizing goal in their recent fixture against Torino.

Differential Pick

Musa Barrow – Barrow has been excellent in Bologna attacking midfield. He has 8 goals and 8 assists while creating 67 chances. The Gambian has also attempted 38 shots on target, succeeded in 34 dribbles and whipped in 33 accurate crosses.
