INTER vs BOLOGNA – BETTING PICK
ITALY SERIE A
Following a weekend defeat (2-0) to Juventus, Inter dropped to 7th place in Serie A. As it stands, the Nerazzurri are 14 points behind leaders Napoli, albeit with a game in hand!
For the record, the hosts are 5-0-1 when playing at home. Inter won the home match season by 6-1, but Bologna won the reverse game 2-1. Also, the visitors won this fixture twice in the last four trips to the San Siro.
In last week’s Champions League, Simeone Inzaghi allowed himself 6 changes in Bayern. While it was a dead rubber, at least it did give an opportunity for bench players to shine. However, Inter lost 2-0, and the performance was poor!
At the weekend, Inter lost to an injury-riddled Juventus. In fact, the Old Lady was missing ten players, and coach Allegri was only able to fill half his bench. In comparison, Inter had just two absentees, but they were still outplayed!
The hosts are still without Romelu Lukaku and Matteo Darmian! However, Marcelo Brozovic was back in the weekend squad, and he was given minutes toward the end of the match. The midfielder could be given a starting role tonight, although we think he will start on the bench. If there are to be any changes, Roberto Gagliardini or Kristjan Asllani could be considered.
Meanwhile, Thiago Motta is starting to get a good tune out of his players! The recently appointed Bologna coach sent his team out to win their last three fixture.
In their most recent match, I Rossoblù was highly efficient in seeing off the challenge of Torino. Since taking charge, Motta installed a totally different system. In short, the new boss installed discipline and improved confidence in his players.
Kevin Bonifazi is the only absentee, and we are not expecting to see any changes to the Bologna starting X!
To summarise, we like the visitors with this handicap start!
BET: BOLOGNA +1.5
