Gary Medel is thrown straight into the Bologna XI for his second Serie A debut against SPAL.
Medel only completed a transfer to Bologna from Besiktas yesterday, but the former Inter man is already brought into the Rossoblu’s midfield, partnering Andrea Poli and Roberto Soriano.
SPAL, on the other hand, are unchanged from their 3-2 opening-day defeat to Atalanta, so Igor keeps his place ahead of new boy Arkadiusz Reca on the left flank.
Sinisa Mihajlovic is expected to take his place in the Rossoblu dugout after being formally discharged from hospital, having completed the first stage of his leukaemia treatment.
Bologna: Skorupski; Tomiyasu, Danilo, Denswil, Dijks; Poli, Medel, Soriano; Orsolini, Destro, Sansone
SPAL: Berisha; Cionek, Vicari, Felipe; D’Alessandro, Valoti, Missiroli, Kurtic, Igor; Di Francesco, Petagna
Referee: Di Bello
