Bologna haven’t had as few points as their current tally of 28 since the 1990/91 season, and an important factor has been the difficulty they’ve encountered in picking up results on the road.
The Rossoblu have collected just two points from the last five away trips, and have managed only one win in the last 11.
Overall, their record from Serie A away games thisseason reads: two wins, five draws and nine defeats.
The two victories have come in either half of the season. Firstly, a resounding 3-0 against Cagliari in Sardinia, and then a 2-1 triumph over Torino at the Stadio Olimpico on 9 February thanks to a Jonathan Cristaldo brace.
Last away match: Inter 2-2 Bologna, 5 April
Unfazed by a 3-0 defeat to Chievo Verona in their previous away trip, the Rossoblu bounced back with a good result at the San Siro in their latest one.
Davide Ballardini’s men came back from behind twice, both strikers on the scoresheet for the Rossoblu to seal a point that could be crucial in their fight for salvation.
Michele Pazienza’s shot was deflected in by Jonathan Cristaldo with 35 minutes gone for Bologna’s first goal, while Panagiotis Kone made the most of a tap-in opportunity on 73 minutes to pull them level for a second time.
Inter boss Walter Mazzarri upped the stakes by introducing an attacking 3-4-3 formation, but in the end they were thwarted as Gianluca Curci saved a Diego Milito penalty six minutes from time.
