Salah scores in home draw against Bologna

AS Roma Bologna Salah


Egypt international scored in the second half to spare AS Roma’s blushes in a 1-1 draw at home against Bologna.

The hosts came into the match knowing a win would be crucial for their hopes of catching second-placed Napoli, but could only manage one point against a determined Bologna side.

Salah started the match brightly, and was unlucky to see his header hit the post in the 17th minute.

The 23-year-old hit the woodwork again six minutes later, with a left-footed strike.

Roma were made to pay for their missed chances, as Luca Rossettini opened the scoring in the 25th minute, stunning the home fans into silence.

The Giallorossi came shooting out of the blocks in the second interval, but it seemed like it just wasn’t Salah’s day; the attacker looked on in disbelief as his shot in the 47th minute hit the frame of the goal yet again.

Nevertheless, the hosts finally managed to pull themselves level five minutes after the break; substitute and club legend Francesco Totti released Salah with a fine through ball, and the latter’s tidy finish pulled his side back into the match with his 12th Serie A goal of the season.

Despite Roma threatening through Salah, Totti, Pjanic and El Shaarawy throughout the second half, Bologna held firm to claim a point at the Stadio Olimpico.

The draw sees Roma extend their lead over fourth-placed Inter Milan to six points, with six matches to play. An away trip to Atalanta is next on the agenda for Salah and his teammates, as Serie A action continues in a week’s time.
