Bologna 1-0 Roma

Radja Nainggolan

Roma maintained the pressure on Serie A leaders Juventus as they beat Bologna thanks to Radja Nainggolan's first goal for the club.

The Belgian midfielder, who joined Roma on loan until the end of the season from Cagliari last month, stabbed in Miralem Pjanic's cross for the winner.

Mattia Destro also went close for Rudi Garcia's side with a shot that hit both posts before bouncing clear.

Roma are six points adrift of Juve, who host neighbours Torino on Sunday.

Defeat means Bologna stay two points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the rest of the weekend's fixtures.
