Bologna Coach Stefano Pioli had an unusual way of describing their situation. “Our backsides are still on the barbecue.”
The Rossoblu ended their crisis and saved his job with a victory over Genoa before Christmas, but remain in dire straits.
They travel to bottom of the table Catania on Sunday at 14.00 GMT. Click here for a match preview.
“There was probably a bit of a shake-up with that victory and everyone took more responsibility for the situation,” explained Pioli in his Press conference.
“We resume from that performance and it was a very important win. However, our backsides are still on the barbecue.”
If Bologna are feeling the heat, then Catania are practically in the fire.
“It is the Last Chance Saloon for Catania, but we cannot relax, otherwise we’ll get burnt. We know what awaits us in Catania, as we are in the same situation as they are right now.”
