AS Roma keeping up the race for the Scudetto with Juventus.  A blow for Bologna losing the home game against Roma at the Renato Dall’Ara Stadium.  Roma with the pressure to win their rest of their games while hoping for Juventus to start losing points.  However, although Bologna lost, it might be considered an improvement considering their previous game with Roma at the Olimpico Stadium on Round 6, AS Roma 5 – 0 Bologna.

One goal was enough for Roma to claim the full 3 points.  In the 37th minute, an assist by midfielder Miralem Pjanic to midfielder Radja Nainggolan defeating Bologna goalkeeper Gianluca Curci from close range in the top right corner.

It’s a special moment for Nainggolan because this is his first goal as a Roma player since he transferred from Cagliari in January.
