Serie A match report Juventus v Bologna 26 September 2018


After a dominating opening spell, the Bianconeri finally took control with the opener thanks to an outstretched volley from Paulo Dybala on 12 minutes.

Within four minutes, it got worse for Bologna after Blaise Matuidi found space at the back post to convert home a cross from Cristiano Ronaldo.

It was proving to be difficult for the visitors who struggled to get themselves into the contest after a decent start.

The Black and White brigade were showing Bologna no mercy and looked threatening whenever the ball fell in their path.

After three goals in two games, Ronaldo was looking to make it four after getting on the blindside of the defence but shot straight into the opposing goalkeeper.

In the second half, it was all Juve again with La Rossa having no sight on the clash whatsoever. It took a bit long to get the next shot on goal.

That said, Joao Cancelo tried to make it worth the while for everyone after turning his marker on the right side to force a save from Lukasz Skorupski.

The game’s first substitution happened on the side of Juventus as Miralem Pjanic went off for Emre Can.

The best chance and arguably the only time the visitors had a shot on target came from a free-kick by Falcinelli but Mattia Perin saved it easily, as the old make it six out of six this season.

Napoli 3-0 Parma
AS Roma 4-0 Frosinone
