A lacklustre performance from Inter against Bologna has put their top 4 hopes in serious danger after the 1-0 defeat.
The same fixture last season cost us the title, so we hope this fixture has not put us in a similar situation with a Champions League spot.
Inzaghi decided to rotate the normal lineup and it looked to backfire from the opening whistle. The likes of De Vrij, Dumfries and Brozovic really struggling in their time on the pitch.
Let’s look further into the match itself.
Out of their element – Literally!
For the first time this season, Inter were forced to play in less than favourable conditions with the pitch soaked in water. About 30 minutes before kick off, torrential rain would hit Stadium Renato Dall’Ara with a massive downpour.
Unfortunately for the entire match, Inter would not adjust to the conditions. Simple passes were skidding out of play, missing their mark and even setting up their opponents for dangerous counter attacking situations.
Overall, we just couldn’t string passes together to build any attacking situations. There was no sustained pressure throughout the match, and a loss is the deserved result for the Nerazzurri.
It was so frustrating watching these players consistently make mistake after mistake. All while Bologna made the most of their opportunities turning a terrible D’Ambrosio pass into the only goal of the match.
Bologna’s free flowing game in the wet had all Interisti in awe, as we could only look on to watch Inter fumble their way around the park.
Definitely a match to forget!
Where to next?
The inconsistency of this team continues, so our best guess is a win will come in the next match. Then most likely a loss or draw in the match after, so the rollercoaster ride will go on.
We are back at home to face Lecce, where a win is all that we can accept. As a team, we need to get back on our winning run as that’s the only way we can possibly secure a top 4 spot.
Prediction – Inter 3-0
As always, Forza Inter!
