Bologna: Greece winger Lazaros Christodoulopoulos scored the winner in the 84th minute as Bologna rallied from a goal down to beat visiting Fiorentina 2-1 on Tuesday in the Appenine derby, which was postponed by two days due to snow.

Adem Ljajic had put Fiorentina ahead in the 27th minute with an angled shot to finish off a counter-attack for his third goal in two matches.

Marco Motta equalised for Bologna in the 58th by heading in a free-kick from Alessandro Diamanti.

Christodoulopoulos, who joined Bologna on the final day of the January transfer window from Panathinaikos, decided the match with a shot from beyond the area after Fiorentina failed to clear.

Fiorentina stayed tied for sixth in Serie A with Catania, two points behind Inter Milan. Bologna moved into a tie for 14th.
