With a pair of goals in Jasmin Kurtic stops, Parma achieved an impressive turnaround from 2-0 down to 2-2 and returned Roberto Inglese to stun Bologna.
The Emilia-Romagna Derby was in doubt when a member of the Parma team tested COVID-19 positive yesterday. Nevertheless, as per the medical protocol, blanket tests were performed this morning and it all turned out negative.
There was one-way traffic at Stadio Tardini and Soriano welcomed winning the request that his ban is halved by reaching the goal, curling out into the far bottom from the outside of the stadium. It bounced straight in front of Sepe who came late down. Bologna won but lost to Mattia Bani ‘s injury when he was forced off to make room for Ibrahima Mbaye.
The second half featured Yann Karamoh and Dejan Kulusevski. They made some improvement, Simone Iacoponi’s header just over from a Hernani free-kick, while Roberto Inglese made his debut after months of injury woe.
At stoppages the Ducali got a goal back, Jasmin Kurtic allowed a free header at the back post on a deflected corner.
Bologna thought it was just consolation, but they didn’t count on Inglese’s rebound, who got to the back post in front of a muddled Tomiyasu to poke Riccardo Gagliolo ‘s floating ball home, going from 0-2 to 2-2 in injury time.
