Gambia international and FC Bologna new signing Musa Barrow produced a man of the match performance in his side’s thrilling 3-2 victory over AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on Friday night.
The former Hawks ace set up his teammate Riccardo Orsolini for the breakthrough goal with a stylish out foot assist to give the visitors an early lead.
The hosts leveled matters via Stefano Denswil’s own goal before Barrow made it 2-1 with a fierce deflected effort past the helpless Roma keeper.Beaming with confidence the Scorpions forward increased his tally and Bologna’s advantage six minutes after the break – latching on to a diagonal pass cutting inside the Roma box and neatly finding the far post to make it 3-1 and his third goal for his new club.The hosts reduced the deficit through on loan Arsenal winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s header 18 minutes from time.The former Atalanta forward was later taken off after a slight injury he sustained and made way for his Gambian compatriot Musa Juwara to mark his Bologna league debut 4 minutes from time.
Bologna said in a statement that the Gambian international will be assessed in the coming days after leaving the stadium with a foot injury following a heavy challenge by Roma’s Bruno Peres.
