Arnautovic nets twice in Bologna victory

Marko Arnautovic of Bologna FC celebrates after scoring his team's and his peronal second goal during the Serie A match between Bologna FC v UC Sampdoria on April 11, 2022 in Bologna, Italy.


Marko Arnautovic could have had a hat-trick but for the crossbar as Bologna beat lowly Sampdoria 2-0 in Serie A.

Bologna went ahead in the 61st minute when Aaron Hickey crossed for Mitchell Dijks at the back post and he knocked it down for Arnautovic to bundle over the line from point-blank range.

Arnautovic almost doubled his tally in the 69th but his strike cannoned off the crossbar.

Nicola Sansone soon after had an effort hit the crossbar when sent clear by an Arnautovic pass.

Arnautovic grabbed a second in the 76th in a move which the Austria international started and finished.

Sampdoria remained seven points above the relegation zone after their fifth loss in six matches.

It was mid-table Bologna's first win in six matches.

Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic remained in hospital for treatment after the return of his leukaemia. He beat the disease in 2019.

Bologna drew at Serie A leader AC Milan 0-0 last week in their first match without their coach, who remains in contact with the players and staff via video.
