Duo edge towards safety after draw.
Both Bologna and Sampdoria remain in midtable after a 1-1 draw in the Serie A.
Bologna, in an all green kit in honour of Earth Day, took the lead in the 24th minute as Italy international Alberto Gilardino scored for the home side with a glancing header from Saphir Taider’s cross. The goal was extra special for Bologna fans as it was their 3000th in Serie A.
Sampdoria had to wait until just shy of the hour mark to score the equaliser. Gianluca Sansone smashed an angled drive across the goalkeeper.
Neither side could convert any further chances but a point a piece edges both sides to wards safety and another season in Serie A.
