Sassuolo go with Francesco Caputo up front this evening against a Bologna side who unleash Andreas Skov Olsen out wide.

Caputo leads Sassuolo’s trident attack in place of Gregoire Defrel, flanked by Jeremie Boga and Italy call-up Domenico Berardi.

The 32-year-old scored 16 goals for Empoli last season and already has three for his new team, as well as three assists.

Elsewhere, it is all change for the Neroverdi in midfield, where Filip Djuricic and Francesco Magnanelli come in for Hamed Traore and Pedro Obiang.

Bologna, meanwhile, have midfield enforcer Gary Medel back, but the most interesting team news comes in attack.

Behind veteran striker Rodrigo Palacio is a supporting cast of Azzurri new boy Riccardo Orsolini, Matthias Svanberg and Skov Olsen.

The young Dane is given only his second start on the Rossoblu’s left flank, with very much a point to prove.

Sassuolo: Consigli; Toljan, Romagna, Marlon, Kyriakopoulos; Djuricic, Magnanelli, Locatelli; Berardi, Caputo, Boga

Bologna: Skorupski; Mbaye, Danilo, Bani, Krejci; Poli, Medel; Orsolini, Svanberg, Skov Olsen; Palacio

Referee: Piccinini
