Olsen's Leads As Roma To Victory Again

Olsen's Heroics help Roma To Win Over Bologna
AS Roma had goalkeeper Robin Olsen to thank for a 2-1 win over lowly Bologna on Monday which kept them hot on the heels of AC Milan in the race for the Champions League next season as they stand among the top 4 clubs in the league table.

Aleksandar Kolarov, gave Roma the lead from the spot, and Federico Fazio scored for Roma in the second half, before a late Bologna consolation, but it was the Swedish keeper who was the real hero as he got lots of saves. 

Olsen did well to tip over Roberto Soriano’s long-range drive in the eighth minute and blocked another effort which was made by the same player with his feet in the 36th minute as Sinisa Mihajlovic’s Bologna side took control in the game.

The Swede international then blocked an effort from Simone Edera’s which was at close range before Soriano blasted against the crossbar seconds before halftime.

Roma went ahead against the run of play in the 55th minute, with "Kolarov" firing home the penalty after a foul on Stephan El Shaarawy who came as a substitute in the match. 
Fazio also volleyed the second with 17 minutes left following a corner.
Sansone bagged one goal for Bologna towards the end of the game.
