Back then, Bologna were still struggling to assimilate Thiago Motta's methods early in his tenure and struggled to a 2-1 win in that season's second leg, where Riccardo Orsolini and Stefan Posch scored mid-game. Second part.
Fast forward four months and the rossoblù are one of the best teams in Serie A and are four points ahead of the hosts in the table ahead of Monday's game.
They are eighth in the table after a narrow 1-0 win against Inter Milan last week and have joined with Juventus to put pressure on a struggling Atalanta in European football next year.
Orsolini scored again in Bologna's last win - fifth in seven league games - and has not only turned his beloved stadium into a fortress of sorts, but has also notched up some away wins in 2023.
wins in each of their last three away games is the Emilian club's best Serie A record since 1964 when they won five in a row and Motta's men could be looking to get closer to that level on Monday.
