“Scorpions” attacker Musa Barrow has secured a late point for his Italian side Bologna during a 2-2 away draw against Spezia in the week-twelve fixtures of the Italian Serie A played at the Stadion Alberto Picco on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old scored his team’s equalizing goal in the 92nd minute of the second half to to share the points against the home side Spezia.
The former Hawks FC star who had a fine performance last night also made a fine assist for Nicolas Moninguez goal for Bologna in the 72nd minute to bring back hope for Bologna after been on a 2-0 down.
Spezia felt at home straight away into the game, going 2-0 up with a M’Bala Nzola brace (two goals) in the 19th and 63rd minutes respectively, just before the Gambian international Musa Barrow guided Bologna with an assist and a goal to force the game to 2-2 draw.
Musa Barrow was both a hero and a villain for Bologna, as his lob from midfield completed the comeback for 2-2 against Spezia, only to see his penalty saved in the stoppage time of the second half.
Meanwhile, Bologna head coach, Sinisa Mihajlovic, who signed Musa Barrow on-loan from Atalanta in 2018 revealed that the Gambian international won’t take the next penalty kick for Bologna after missing one.
“This will be the last penalty kick taken by Barrow, he had already missed one,” the Serbian tactician told reporters.
The former Atalanta striker fluffed another penalty kick against Spezia in Coppa Italia back in November.
“I usually give players another chance after they have missed a penalty kick, so that they don’t remain with a trauma. But he has two already and I’ll need to find another penalty kick taker. Musa scored a great goal, but he is not doing well, he is too soft. He loses too many challenges. One can’t change his character, but he needs to improve.”
The former Atalanta striker has scored three goals with two assists in twelve appearances for Bologna so far.
