Bologna’s victory at Fiorentina on Tuesday means Bolognese are now in a position to qualify for the Champions League and the Coppa Italia.
The Rossoneri’s current campaign is the longest since they were promoted to the top flight in 2009, and their last Champions League appearance came in 1999 when they lost to Juventus.
Bologna have scored a staggering nine goals in their last four Serie A games, with only the winners of that contest scoring more than seven goals.
However, they will now be in a very difficult position to keep their Champions League hopes alive, with just one win from the last four games.
Despite that, Bolognas boss Roberto di Matteo has put his faith in his side and they will be confident of reaching the final if they win on Wednesday.
“The way Bolognese have been playing, we have been able to win every game so far and we are confident of a good result,” he said.
“We have to win one more in order to reach the Champions, which is the most important thing for us.”
It’s a difficult competition but we are in a good position.
“Roma’s current run of five consecutive Serie A victories means they are in an enviable position, with Bologlia in fifth place in the table.
But the Italian side have lost four of their last five games, including two away from home to Sassuolo.
Roma have won just once in their past eight Serie A matches, losing their opening two away to Sasso.
However Bolognia are unlikely to lose in Bologs stadium, where they are favourites to win the final.
They will be hoping to do so as they have struggled to find a consistent rhythm since replacing Claudio Ranieri last summer.”
I think the whole team will need to be better to win and I think the team will have to be more consistent if we are going to win a Champions League,” Di Matteo said.
Riccardo Montolivo will be available for the second leg against Roma, after a knee injury forced the Italian to miss the first leg.
However Montolimo, who scored against Sassuol on Sunday, is expected to be available after being rested.
