Bologna strolled past AC Monza with a 2-1 win on Monday at Stadio Brianteo. ASS were looking to get back to winning ways after losing their last match 4-1 to AC Milan. Bologna were looking to extend their winning run after a 2-0 victory against Lecce. ASS and Bologna sit 15th, (10 points) and 12th, (13 points), in the league respectively, after 12 matches.

After an uneventful first half, ASS took the initiative in the second half, when Andrea Petagna found the net in the 57th minute. However, they were unable to maintain their lead, Lewis Ferguson managing to equalize, 60 minutes in 1-1. Bologna then netted once more and turned the match thanks to a goal from Riccardo Orsolini on the 73 minute mark to give a final score of 2-1.

Substitutions for ASS included Gianluca Caprari, Patrick Ciurria, Warren Bondo, Chris Gytkjaer and Mattia Valoti for Filippo Ranocchia, Marco D`Alessandro, Stefano Sensi, Andrea Petagna and Matteo Pessina, respectively.
