Bologna suffer setback in Serie A against Torino

Bologna have missed a chance to leap frog Juventus and move into third place in Serie A after a lackluster goalless draw at Torino.

A win would have taken Bologna, one of the surprises of the league, to one point ahead of Juve.

Instead, they remained in fourth, a point behind the Turin club and having played a game more. Juventus visited Rome on Sunday.

The best chances of Friday’s game fell to Torino. Antonio Sanabria and Duvan Zapata came close and Lukasz Skorupski made a string of good saves for the visitors.

Bologna were stuck with a fourth draw in their last five matches.

The result left Torino in 10th place.
