Bologna boss Alberto Malesani was thrilled with their late victory over Palermo.

The Rossoblu have now won their last three home games on the trot and Daniele Paponi scored the 90th-minute winner.

"This is a Bologna side that plays great football. Opponents struggle to contain us and we saw today that as time went on, Palermo were having more and more trouble dealing with us," said the Coach.

"While we were playing, I told the lads we had to keep calm, as this was a game we could win."
