Inter Milan 1 Bologna 2

San Siro

Milan Italy

After their thrashing of relegation side Brescia Inter welcome visitors Bologna. This is another must win as Atalanta keep on the heels of Inter for third position. Bologna on the other side of things are looking to move up in the league standings. The last time these two sides faced each other Inter won the match 2-1 and Inter will look to add another win to the victory column. Overall Inter have the better record when facing Bologna. In this match on the side of Inter will have a few key players that will stand out. The first is Barella who as really stepped up in the past few matches. In the match against Parma he was the player single handedly created most of Inter’s chances while nobody else was there to execute the goals being set up. Defensive wise Bastoni has been a solid dfifference maker on the defense whereas Godin struggled massively so Bastoni looks to be a huge starter going forward. Also Lukaku and Martinez will look to get back into scoring form as both haven’t scored since their match against Sassuolo. The only key threat on Bologna is their main goal scorer with eight goals is Orsolini if they don’t keep him isolated he will run circles around Inter. This should be an Inter win but mid table teams have given Inter issues lately so this match at this point can go either way.

After final bets this match got underway in the heart of Milan. Inter in the first half created a bunch of chances but early on had a hard time capitializing on those chances. They also did a solid job keeping Bologna’s chances limited. In the twenty second minute Lukaku lands a close range shot into the center of the goal making things 1-0 to the home boys. Inter would continue creating chances throughout the half the only key player for Bologna doing anything is Orsolini who created most of his sides chances this half. The half ends with Inter up 1-0. Inter continued their pressure fifty seven minutes Soriano of Bologna is given a red card for a bad foul on Gagliardini. This gives Inter a chance to add to their lead but Martinez fails to capitialize on the penalty chance. Seventy four minutes in Bologna weren’t going to be denied as Juwara lands a shot from the center of the box landing the ball in the lower left corner of the goal making things all square once again. A few minutes later Bastoni gets a second yellow card which turned into a red which sent him off. With ten minutes to play Bologna after a through ball from Dominguez lands a shot from the left of the box landing the ball into the lower left corner giving them their first lead of the match. Bologna would hold on and stun Inter by taking home all three points as Inter continue to struggle following the resumptition of the season. Bologna deserved the win they were the ones who showed heart and determination. Inter seem to not want to win bad enough lately which is dangerous as Atalanta are still hot on their heels in wanting to overtake third once again. Inter seriously need to wake the hell up or else it’ll be another dismal repetative season. Inter in their next match take on Europa League hopefuls Hellas Verona they beat in the first half of matches of the season. This should be a tough match and can go either way. As always Forza Inter.
