Line-ups: Siena-Bologna

Alberto Gilardino faces off against Emanuele Calaiò and Alessandro Rosina in tonight’s Siena-Bologna clash.

The two relegation candidates go head-to-head at the Stadio Franchi Montepaschi di Siena, kicking off at 19.45 UK time. Click here for a match preview.

Serse Cosmi picks almost the same XI who earned a shock 2-0 victory over Inter at San Siro on Sunday, as Rosina and Ze Eduardo support Calaiò in a 3-4-2-1 system.

The only change is Ribair Perez Rodriguez stepping into the midfield role instead of Gaetano D’Agostino.

Mattia Contini and Andrea Campagnolo are still out injured for the home side.

Bologna come into this game after beating Roma and being held by Pescara, but Alessandro Diamanti is only fit for the bench after a right thigh problem in training.

Niccolò Cherubin returns to the starting line-up, while Robert Acquafresca partners Gilardino.

Siena:Pegolo; Neto, Paci, Felipe; Angelo, Vergassola, Rodriguez, Del Grosso; Rosina, Zè Eduardo; Calaiò

Siena bench: Farelli, Marini, Valiani, Paolucci, D’Agostino, Dellafiore, Verre, Rubin, Martinez, Mannini, Sestu, Bogdani
Bologna: Agliardi; Antonsson, Natali, Cherubin; Motta, Perez, Pazienza, Morleo; Kone; Acquafresca, Gilardino

Bologna bench: Curci, Lombardi, Taider, Gimenez, Garics, Pulzetti, Guarente, Gabbiadini, Abero, Diamanti, Sorensen, De Carvalho
