But replays revealed it was Abraham who was impeded before making contact with Mattias Svanberg, who had actually opened the lead.

Svanberg, 22, went to ground after Abraham’s contact and got the England international in the book.

It was the forward’s fifth booking of the season and will now leave him sidelined against third-placed Inter Milan on Saturday.

Abraham, 23, tweeted: “Yellow carded for this today and miss the next game… when I was the one blocked and fouled. Absolutely disgraceful.”

The attacker had been in good form in the Italian capital with eight goals in 21 appearances under ex-Chelsea and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Roma sit fifth in Serie A and host reigning champions Inter next and despite defeat, manager Mourinho praised his battling squad.


He said on DAZN: “Credit to Sinisa [Mihajlovic] and Bologna, they played a great game.

“But credit to my players too. They gave it their all against everything and everyone.

“Injuries before the game, injuries during the game, ‘hidden’ injuries to players who played the full 90 minutes.

“Then there were a few incidents but my players kept fighting. I am proud of these guys, I don’t have negative feelings towards them.”
