Lecce fell to an away defeat at the hands of Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Sunday. Bologna were looking forward to playing again after losing 3-2 to Napoli in their last match. Lecce had managed to pick up a point in their matchup with Fiorentina. Bologna and Lecce currently occupy 13th and 17th spots in the league, with 10 points and 8 points respectively after 11 matches.

Bologna started strongly in the first half, when Marko Arnautovic found the net in the 13th minute. However they weren’t finished yet and Lewis Ferguson made it 2-0 in the 34th minute to see out the first half 2-0. With both teams struggling to produce anything meaningful in the second half though, the match ended 2-0.

Substitutions for Bologna included Riccardo Orsolini, Adama Soumaoro, Joaquin Sosa and Roberto Soriano for Musa Barrow, Jhon Lucumi, Kevin Bonifazi and Lewis Ferguson, respectively. Lecce replaced Remi Oudin, Federico Di Francesco, Alexis Blin, Pablo Rodriguez and Lorenzo Colombo with Lameck Banda, Kristoffer Askildsen, Morten Hjulmand, Gabriel Strefezza and Assan Ceesay.
