Bologna defender Andrea Mantovani has admitted that his side ‘can’t afford’ any mistakes against Livorno.
The Rossoblu have endured a torrid campaign so far, failing to win any of their first eight games, and claiming just three points in the process.
As such, the centre-back has conceded that his men have to be at their best if they are to beat the promoted team.
“We want to get out of this difficult time as soon as possible,” he told a Press conference.
“We are letting in too many goals. We have to improve our concentration and try to come out of this.
“We can’t afford to make any more mistakes. From what I’ve seen on the training pitch though, we are coming together as a team.
“If we keep putting our heads down, then hopefully the results – starting against Livorno – will come.”
