Scorpions’ striker Musa Barrow scored twice to inspire Bologna to a 3-0 victory over Parma in their week twenty-one fixtures of the Italian Serie A league played at the Ennio Tardini Stadium on Sunday.

The 22-year-old opened the scoring for Bologna in the 15 minutes of the game after heading home Nicola Sansone’s cross.

He doubled his side’s lead moments after the half-hour mark after benefitting from another Nicola Sansone’s assist in the 33 minutes.

Riccardo Orsolini sealed the victory for Bologna shortly before the end of the game after he was set up by Roberto Soriano.

Barrow made his 19th league start at Stadio Ennio Tardini and delivered a spectacular performance during the encounter.

He played a key role as Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men return to winning ways after back-to-back defeats to Juventus and AC Milan.

The former Hawks FC forward featured for 82 minutes, had 41 touches on the ball and made three key passes before making way for Rodrigo Palacio.

The Gambian international has been with the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara outfit since January 2020 when he teamed up with the side on loan from Atalanta.

Musa Barrow has now scored six goals and provided four assists in 23 appearances across all competitions this season.

With the result, Bologna moved to the 13th spot on the league table after gathering 23 points from 21 games, while Parma dropped to the bottom three after their inability to add to their existing 13 points and will hope to return to winning ways against Hellas Verona on February 15.
