Bologna Football Club 1909 had a successful season, in which it reached the top half of the standings in Serie A for the second year running. The most notable feature about the Bologna side was the presence of superstar Roberto Baggio, who flourished when getting out of a terrible spell at Milan. He scored 22 out of the teams' 55 goals, before leaving for Inter at the end of the season. Given that fellow strikers Kennet Andersson and Igor Kolyvanov also impressed, Bologna could live with losing Baggio. Other well-performing players included goalkeeper Francesco Antonioli, defender Michele Paramatti and playmaker Carlo Nervo.
