Bologna 1-0 Novara 
Stefano Pioli: “We wanted to get back in track after the defeat to Udinese, so more than the performance what we needed was points. It was an important result in the relegation battle and we must be wary not to get sucked back into the fight. There was great emotion for Lucio Dalla, a man who left an indelible mark on the city.”
Emiliano Mondonico: “We had grit and determination, holding out in defence for almost the whole 90 minutes. The situation is increasingly difficult for us, although Bologna did deserve the victory. Hopefully from Monday we’ll all be ready to resume fighting for safety.”
