Musa Barrow brace helps Bologna win at Roma

Musa Barrow struck twice for Bologna as Roma missed the chance to climb back into the Serie A’s top four in a 3-2 home defeat.

Gambia forward Barrow scored in each half after Riccardo Orsolini’s opener for Bologna had been cancelled out by Stefano Denswil’s own goal.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan headed Roma back into it in the 72nd minute, but they played out the last 10 minutes with 10 men after Bryan Cristante’s straight red card for his challenge on Orsolini and slipped to back-to-back league defeats.
