The capital club only managed to create 5 shots in the entire match, with only 2 being on target. The hosts, meanwhile, had two opportunities to find the back of the net in the first half through Stefan Posch and Lewis Ferguson but were prevented by Lazio shot-stopper Ivan Provedel.
The 28 year-old made two huge saves and undoubtedly prevented the visitors from suffering a defeat.
Frustration boiled over when Marco Arnautovic, the team’s leading goalscorer, was left on the bench for the game and was seen throwing a water bottle at the team bench before storming off into the dressing room.
“I didn’t see his reaction,” confessed Bologna boss Thiago Motta during his post match press conference.
“You’ll have to talk to him but right now he’s not finding a lot of space because at the moment, other guys such as (Musa) Barrow deserve to play.”
Adding, “I’ll take things one match at a time and evaluate who helps give us the best chance to win and help the team. As for our performance, I thought we did well.”
“It was a good team display. We came really close to scoring, especially in the second half. Unfortunately we couldn’t find the goal.”
