Bologna defeat Genoa 1-0 on Saturday at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris. With each team arriving on the back of a league defeat, they were both keen to pick up points. Genoa were hoping to get something from this game, following a previous defeat to Napoli whilst Bologna lost 3-1 in the last match they played against Sassuolo. Following the final whistle at the end of the last game of the Serie A season, Genoa and Bologna are 19th (28 points) and 12th (46 points) in the table respectively, after a total of 38 matches.

After an un-eventful first half, Bologna continued to pile on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to Musa Barrow giving The Greyhounds the lead, 66 minutes in. The game ended with a 1-0 win for Bologna.

For Genoa, Filippo Melegoni, Morten Frendrup, Andrea Cambiaso, Nicolo Rovella and Caleb Ekuban, came on for Manolo Portanova, Pablo Galdames, Nadiem Amiri, Hernani and Domenico Criscito. Bologna replaced Kacper Urbanski, Riccardo Stivanello, Aaron Hickey, Emanuel Vignato and Nicola Bagnolini with Jerdy Schouten, Luis Binks, Wisdom Amey, Antonio Raimondo and Francesco Bardi.

There were bookings for Pablo Galdames, Domenico Criscito and Leo Ostigard from Genoa, and Michel Aebischer, for Bologna.
