Antonio Conte avoided embarrassment this past week, as Inter Milan managed to keep their hopes of progression in the Champions League alive. However, the attention switches back to Serie A this weekend.
Serie A Preview
Despite having a slow start to the season, Inter Milan are now the nearest contenders to AC Milan at the top of the league table. Inter have lost just one league game all season, but are now on a five-match unbeaten run. They have won three games during this run of form, and have drawn on two occasions. Inter are the highest scorers in Serie A this season, but it has been their defensive record that have let them down on occasions so far. They are still five points behind AC Milan at present, which looks to be a difficult total to overcome at present since Milan haven’t looked like losing a match in Serie A. Conte’s side won their last game in the league against Sassuolo. That was a dominant display by Inter, as they were 2-0 up at half time. Alexis Sanchez was among the scorers in the opening half. The points were wrapped up on the hour mark as Roberto Gagliardini scored the third.
Bologna haven’t drawn a game all season, as they have won four times and lost five times in their nine outings so far this term. They have score 14 times and conceded the same number. However, they seem to have found a winning formula over recent weeks, as they have won three of their last four. That run includes successive wins coming into this game over recent weeks. Their last win came against Crotone, with Roberto Soriano scoring the only goal on the stroke of half-time. They allowed just one shot on target in that game, and that defensive backbone will be tested against Inter this weekend.
Inter Milan vs Bologna Head To Head
Inter do not have the dominant record in this fixture that many would expect. They have lost two of the last four against Bologna, with both of these defeats coming at the San Siro. The most recent match between these sides was in July, with Bologna winning 2-1.
Inter Milan vs Bologna Prediction
Inter will come into this match as favourites, but Bologna’s impressive record at the San Siro will give cause for concern. However, the home win still seems like the most likely result.
