Hellas Verona and Bologna have had impressive starts to their Serie A campaigns, with both sides in the league's top half heading into Monday's meeting at Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi.
The hosts are unbeaten in their last three league games against Thiago Motta’s men and will be looking to continue in the same vein.
Hellas Verona were sent crashing back to earth as they suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Sassuolo just before the international break.
Prior to that, Marco Baroni’s men won their first three matches across all competitions, including a 3-1 victory over Ascoli in the first round of the Coppa Italia on August 12.
With six points from three games, Hellas Verona are currently seventh in the Serie table, level on points with sixth-placed Atalanta.
Bologna, on the other hand, picked up their first win of the season in their last outing before the international break as they edged out Cagliari 2-1 on home turf.
Motta’s side had kicked off the new Serie A campaign with a 2-0 loss against AC Milan on August 21, six days before playing out a 1-1 draw with Juventus.
Bologna are currently ninth in the league table, having picked up four points from the first nine available.

Hellas Verona vs Bologna Prediction
Hellas Verona and Bologna have both enjoyed respectable starts to the new campaign as we anticipate a fierce contest at the Marcantonio Bentegodi Stadium.
Hellas Verona’s home advantage gives them a slight edge in this one and we fancy them coming away with a narrow victory. The Mastiffs lost before the international break, while the Emilia-Romagna outfit claimed their first win of the season a fortnight back.
Marco Baroni's men defeated Empoli and Roma in the opening two gameweeks, with the latter triumph against Jose Mourinho's men especially pleasing. They welcome Bologna to the Bentegodi, looking to pick up their second home victory of the season, thus extending their unbeaten sequence in front of their fans to three games.
That unbeaten run began with a goalless encounter with Empoli at the backend of last season, and avoiding a loss will be gratifying for a side that find themselves in seventh, having ended last term in 18th. Baroni's team needed a relegation playoff victory against Spezia to retain their Serie A status, so six points from nine in the new season is a welcome development. As for Bologna, four points from their opening three games was a decent return before the hiatus for Thiago Motta's men, who defeated a newly-promoted Cagliari 2-1.
The Rossoblu have had a tough start, facing AC Milan and Juventus in the first two rounds, and picking up a point at the Allianz Stadium was commendable. Motta's team could secure consecutive victories on Monday, and the fact Verona have not kept a clean sheet in the last 12 meetings between both clubs offers hope, even if Bologna have not won any of the last three competitive games.
