Bologna fights back from 2 goals down to beat Crotone 3-2

<p>MILAN &mdash; Bottom club Crotone let slip a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 at home to Bologna in Serie A on Saturday.</p>
<p>Substitute Andreas Skov Olsen scored the winner for Bologna six minutes from time. Crotone had looked set for a precious win after goals from Junior Messias and Nwankwo Simy put it 2-0 up at halftime. But midtable Bologna leveled with two goals in eight second-half minutes.</p>
<p>Crotone remained eight points from safety.</p>
<p>There is a relegation fight later as 18th-place Cagliari visits Spezia. The match between Serie A leader Inter Milan and Sassuolo was <a href="">postponed </a> because of coronavirus cases in the Nerazzurri camp.</p>
<p>Crotone took the lead in the 32nd minute as Messias’ free kick went past everyone and into the bottom corner.</p>
<p>Simy doubled Crotone’s lead eight minutes later when he drilled a penalty into the bottom right corner after Bologna defender Adama Soumaoro had bundled over Samuel Di Carmine as they tussled for a corner kick.</p>
<p>Bologna coach Siniša Mihajlović rang the changes at halftime, bringing on Skov Olsen and Jerdy Schouten, and the visitors upped the pressure.</p>
<p>Soumaoro made up for giving away the penalty by reducing the deficit in the 62nd and Schouten curled a long-range strike into the top right corner shortly after for the equalizer.</p>
<p>Bologna completed the extraordinary comeback late on when Alex Cordaz could only parry Rodrigo Palacio’s strike and Skov Olsen slid in to slot home the rebound.</p>
<p>Emmanuel Rivière thought he had scored a stoppage-time equalizer for Crotone but it wad ruled out for offside.</p>
