Genoa give Bologna massive headache after Serie A win

Bologna face an anxious wait to discover where they will finish in the Serie A table after defeat by Genoa in their final game left them looking over their shoulders.

Goals from Ruslan Malinovskyi and Vitinha handed the hosts a 2-0 win at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium on Friday.

That means Bologna, who started the day in third place, remain level on 68 points with Juventus, who host Monza on Saturday, and just two ahead of Europa League winners Atalanta, who have two games in hand, although all three have already qualified for the Champions League.

Genoa forced their way into a 13th-minute lead when Malinovskyi converted Aaron Martin’s lay-off, and they sealed victory 14 minutes after the restart when Vitinha struck.

Genoa finished the season in 11th spot with 12 wins and 13 draws from 38 matches.
