After today’s result, Bologna are in 11th place on the table and has 28 points while Lazio sit in 6th with 43 points after 24 matches.

Bologna started strong and were rewarded, following a goal from Ibrahima Mbaye, 19 minutes in, thereby seeing the first half to a 1-0.

Bologna continued to pile on the pressure the second half and were rewarded, beginning with Nicola Sansone opening the scoring in the 64th minute, and the game ended 2-0.
