Bologna thrashed Cagliari in Serie A in one of their best performances of the season.
Bologna triumphed at home to Cagliari in Serie A in convincing fashion.
The statistics told much of the story – the home team had 16 shots, with seven on target and once hitting the woodwork. Only once was a Cagliari defender able to block a Bologna shot, illustrating just how easily the Rossoblu were able to cut through the defence.
Cagliari, in sharp contrast, only managed a single attempt on target, showing that their desperately open defence was matched by their toothlessness in attack.
Bologna took the lead in the 5th minute through Saphir Sliti Taider, and doubled it through former West Ham United star Alessandro Diamanti just ten minutes later to leave Cagliari with an enormous mountain to climb.
That task was made all the more difficult when Francesco Pisano received a second yellow card for a poor tackle, and Bologna used their one man advantage well.
Cristian Pasquato fired home from outside the area in injury time to seal the victory.
