Bologna Coach Alberto Malesani has demanded the maximum from his players ahead of Saturday's trip to Brescia.
The Felsinei have an outside chance of qualifying for Europe this season and need to keep their momentum until the end of the campaign.
"We have never thought about giving up," Malesani said. "Now that we have reached our primary objective we have a thousand others to realise.
"I can guarantee that my players will give the maximum as they have always done. Ours is a team with a very strong mentality, which trains in an extraordinary way.
"I am really optimistic. From here until the end we will get other satisfactions because this group is unpredictable.
"Tomorrow's game is very important for us. A victory would give us an incredible boost."
