Late Fabbian strike propels Bologna closer to Champions League berth

Posted : 16 March 2024

Bologna's unexpected surge towards a Champions League berth in Serie A continued with a thrilling 1-0 victory over Empoli, sealed by Giovanni Fabbian's stoppage-time heroics on Friday. Fabbian, coming off the bench, capitalized on a rebound in the dying moments of added time, propelling Bologna six points clear of fifth-placed Roma in the league standings.


This crucial triumph arrives amidst a pivotal phase of the season for Bologna, who suffered a setback last week with a narrow 1-0 defeat to league leaders Inter Milan, following an impressive string of six consecutive victories. The win not only bolsters their position in the table but also revitalizes their pursuit of securing a Champions League qualification spot, with Thiago Motta's side now trailing third-placed Juventus by a mere four points ahead of Juventus' upcoming clash with Genoa.


For Bologna, aiming to secure a debut appearance in the Champions League, this season marks a remarkable resurgence, considering their highest finish in Serie A last season was ninth place, marking their most successful campaign in over a decade.


While the club did partake in one round of the old European Cup in 1964, their latest endeavor signals a significant milestone in their modern era, notably amidst their recent domestic achievements. Meanwhile, Empoli's defeat leaves them precariously perched just one point above the relegation zone, occupying 17th place in the league standings.
