BOLOGNA. The victory in Serie A is missing from Di Francesco from 20 November 2020: the wait continues because at the Dall’Ara to celebrate is Bologna, the third consecutive useful result and sixth in the standings after just three days. Not bad for those who had entered the championship by losing 5-4 at home to Ternana and then able to paint the contours of a good start to the season by beating Salernitana, drawing in Bergamo and finding the second consecutive home victory, an event that did not had been checking since last March.
Mihajlovic must give up Kingsley and Schouten, absent at the last minute (muscle fatigue to be evaluated), while for Hellas it is the first without Zaccagni, sold to Lazio and Di Francesco must do without Frabotta and Veloso. Verona starts better, making the game, but Medel is produced in a couple of providential closures on Simeone and Caprari to avert dangers. Verona plays but does not finish, while Bologna is frightening when it shakes around the 20 ‘: Svanberg touches the post from the outside on an assist from Soriano, who then builds with the contribution of Dominguez and goes to conclude after exchange with Arnautovic chipping the post . Barrow also tries, but finds Montipò. And at the end Verona is seen again, which on the Faraoni-Simeone axis (header) devours the advantage.
Bologna risks big even on 11 ‘of the second half, when Bonifazi loses the ball in the area, but Skorupski comes out on Simeone, saving the result. Mihajlovic runs for cover and puts in Sansone and Skov Olsen for the off Barrow (who just before devours the advantage by undermining the ball on the developments of a corner) and Orsolini, looking for a spark. He finds it. Because in the 34th minute Samson recovers the ball on the trocar and triggers Arnautovic, who struggles to find space in the area. But Dominguez, one of the best, comes to give him a hand, keeping alive the ball that the Austrian striker unloads at the edge of the Svanberg stream: round the ground to the right of the goalkeeper and Montipò is beaten. Bologna ends in crescendo, devouring the 2-0 with Arnautovic, but the knockout blow is by Svanberg, who sends the rossoblùs into orbit and Di Francesco’s Verona in black crisis.
