Roma were held to a goalless 0-0 draw this evening against Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.

Although they leapfrogged Atalanta in the Serie A table, the Giallorossi lost more ground in their fight for fourth place as the gap widened from five to six points with just three league fixtures remaining.

Playing with a heavily rotated side that featured several youngsters, Roma were once again punished by their inability to make the most of their scoring opportunities.

Jose Mourinho’s men  conceded very little to Thiago Motta’s men despite ending the match with only 28% of the possession in total.

A golden opportunity open to scoring fell to Andrea Belotti midway through the opening half but the ex-Torino man was denied.

They’d have to wait until the final fifteen minutes to get another clear-cut chance to score. Tammy Abraham and Gianluca Mancini had two high quality goalscoring chances in last fifteen minutes but neither took advantage.

The result all but confirms the Giallorossi’s Champions League hopes rely entirely on winning the Europa League–which they resume Thursday for the second leg of their tie against Bayer Leverkusen.
