Line-ups: Bologna-Chievo

Rodrigo Palacio leads the line for Bologna this evening against a Chievo side who hand a first-ever start to teenage winger Emanuel Vignato.

Palacio is picked ahead of Federico Santander in Bologna’s attack, although Mattia Destro is out after celebrating during a goal celebration.

The experienced Blerim Dzemaili, meanwhile, gets the nod over Andrea Poli in the Rossoblu’s engine room.

Chievo, meanwhile, go with youth, benching the likes of Sergio Pellissier, Perparim Hetemaj and Emmanuel Giaccherini for Sofian Kiyine, Mehdi Leris and 18-year-old attacker Vignato, who is an Italy Under-19 international.

Bologna can climb out of the Serie A drop zone with victory over Domenico Di Carlo’s basement boys, who have not won since December.
