Bologna Salvage Draw Against Napoli

A brace from Rolando Bianchi, including a goal in the 90th minute, helped a ten-man Bologna side salvage a 2-2 draw against Napoli in a Serie A match at the Stadio Dall'Ara on Sunday.

Bologna certainly started the brighter of the two teams and opened the scoring in the 37th minute with Bianchi finding the first of his two goals, powerfully heading home an Alessandro Diamanti cross, 1-0.

The second 45 saw Napoli gain the ascendancy and apply pressure on the Bologna goal.

Bologna were rewarded for their efforts in the 60th minute when they were awarded a penalty after Blerim Dzemaili was pulled down inside the box by Panagiotis Kone.

Gonzalo Higuaín stepped up and coolly slotted the spot-kick to draw Napoli level, 1-1.

In the 80th minute Napoli then turned the game on its head when they took the lead as José Callejón found the bottom left-hand corner of the net from just inside the right-hand side of the box, 2-1.

Bologna then suffered a further set-back four minutes later when they were reduced to ten men after Panagiotis Kone was sent from the field for receiving his second yellow card.

Bologna, though, were not going to go down without a fight and found the equalising goal in the dying seconds of the match as Rolando Bianchi turned home the ball from the centre of the box, 2-2.
