Cagliari stunned Bologna 1-0 at the Stadio Is Arenas with Radja Nainggolan getting the only goal of the match just past the hour mark with a brilliant effort.

Starting Action
Archimede Morleo took a free kick from distance which was fired over the bar. Alessandro Diamanti cross found Alberto Gilardino whose header hit the post and bounced into Michael Agazzi hands. On two replays that were shown, one appeared to cross the line and the other showed a majority portion of the ball did cross the line. Nene charged down a Bologna clearance and it was brilliantly saved by Federico Agliaridi.

The opening goal of the game came on the hour and it was a brilliant goal. Albin Ekdal broke from midfield and from the left hand side and passed the ball through to the centre to Radja Nainggolan who hit a brilliant side footed effort into the top corner. Bologna then had chances to equalise and Alessandro Diamanti had the best chance for the away side, when his angle drive from the right hand side that was brilliantly parried away by Agazzi.

This wasn’t a brilliant game and both teams struggled with the stop-start tempo yet Cagliari showed more spirit and determination deservedly gaining all 3 points. Back to back wins for Cagliari after their away win at Torino before the international break can the Sardinian minnows swim further up stream? We shall see.
