Roma-Bologna, draw with white nets: heated fight for the Europa League

Mourinho opts for massive turnover with an eye also on the return semi-final of the Conference League, scheduled for next Thursday. Zaniolo takes the place of Abraham and plays as the first striker, probably he will have given fewer points of reference to Bologna but the absence of a nine green role is felt. Roma asks for a penalty for a dubious intervention by Medel with the arm, but the referee Fabbri is not of the same opinion. Another episode is the game clash that sees Maitland-Niles as the protagonist, also in this case the Var does not intervene because the contact happened close to the penalty area. The first blast from Bologna arrives at 20 ‘, with Arnautovic losing the moment in front of Rui Patricio. Carlos Perez also tries, but first Bonifazi and then Soumaoro avert the dangers. Double intervention also for the Giallorossi goalkeeper, at the end of the first half, on Orsolini and Arnautovic. In the second half, around the hour of play, Mourinho tries everything to try to win the race. Abraham, Pellegrini, Kardsrop and Zalewski enter the field. The hosts continue to attack and close the lead with Kumbulla. The Portuguese coach also inserts Shomurodov, in place of Veretout, trying to take advantage of the difficult moment of Bologna who can no longer hold the ball. At the last second, Roma has the chance to win the match with Pellegrini, the conclusion ends up by very little. The match ends 0-0, the fight in the Europa League becomes more and more heated.
