BOLOGNA, Italy (AP) -- Roma ground out a 1-0 win at relegation-threatened Bologna to cut the gap to Serie A leader Juventus to six points as Radja Nainggolan scored his first goal for the capital club on Saturday.
Nainggolan scored his first Italian league goal at Bologna, in October 2010, and he also opened his Roma account there following his January move from Cagliari.
The Belgium midfielder volleyed home Miralem Pjanic's cross from close range eight minutes from time.
Roma had almost gone in front in the 19th minute when Mattia Destro's effort hit the inside of the right post and rolled all the way along the goalline before going out by the left upright.
Bologna remained two points off the bottom three ahead of the rest of the weekend's fixtures.
