Mihajlovic did not expect Bologna victory

Sat 27 February 2021 | 20:13

Bologna manager Sinisa Mihajlovic was surprised after his side managed to beat Lazio 2-0 as they had never beaten any top team this season.

Lazio

’s

Ciro Immobile

had the opportunity to put the Biancocelesti up 1-0 from the spot. However, the 31-year-old failed to convert the penalty kick.

80 seconds later,

Ibrahima Mbaye

punished them and scored the opener for the Rossoblù, before 

Nicola Sansone

doubled their lead with a splendid volley.

“.It was a good performance, and after Immobile had the penalty saved and Ibra Mbaye scored, I said it’s impossible we lose this now!”

Mihajlovic told Sky Sport Italia

.

“All joking aside, we played well, could’ve scored more on the counter, and in general I am very happy. We controlled the ball well, closed up the spaces and pressed Lazio hard.

“We are a team who play football and put in the performance. We aren’t always determined enough to convert the chances, but we attack and have a lot of quality in the side. Sometimes we concede on an error or waste chances, but today everything went well.”

This was

Bologna

’s first win against a club from the top half of the table and

Mihajlovic

admits he was surprised.

“We knew that sooner or later we’d have to beat one of the big clubs. Perhaps I expected it less today than any other, as we had to change half the defense and the full-backs are particularly important for attacking as well as defending.
