Bologna enjoyed a mesmerising home victory against Hellas Verona at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Monday. Bologna arrived with the intention of increasing their league score after a scoreless draw against Atalanta in their previous match. Verona, on the other hand, lost 3-1 in the last match they played against Internazionale. Following today’s result, Bologna and Verona sit 6th, (7 points) and 19th, (0 points), in the league respectively, after 3 matches.

After an un-eventful first half, Bologna piled on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to Mattias Svanberg giving The Greyhounds the lead, 78 minutes in. They managed to see the game out with a clean sheet and a final score of 1-0.

For Bologna, Nicola Sansone, Andreas Olsen and Federico Santander, came on for Musa Barrow, Riccardo Orsolini and Marko Arnautovic. Verona replaced Pawel Dawidowicz, Adrien Tameze, Nicolo Casale, Gianluca Caprari and Ivan Ilic for Giangiacomo Magnani, Martin Hongla, Federico Ceccherini, Matteo Cancellieri and Kevin Lasagna.
