Genoa’s run came to an end at three wins, as Mattia Destro scored one and created another for Bologna’s 2-0 victory.
The Grifone had been on sparkling form and fresh from beating Inter, but defensive errors proved costly at the Stadio Dall’Ara.
Adam Masina sprung the offside trap and Aleandro Rosi cleared off the line, but Destro followed up to open the scoring somewhat against the run of play.
The second goal saw Nicolas Spolli horribly caught in possession for the Destro counter-attack and he generously rolled across for Cesar Falletti’s debut Serie A goal.
It’s Bologna’s second consecutive victory and keeps them ahead of Genoa in the table.
