Five wins out of five with an away win at Juventus, a derby thrashing of Milan and a convincing thumping of Roma. Subsequently, Inter are well and truly in the driving seat of the Scudetto race and on the verge of a domestic treble with a ticket to the Coppa Italia final against Juventus. With all that said, Inter will travel to Bologna on Wednesday. The Bologna vs Inter game is all set to take place after a couple of cancellations. And this is probably the game that will define the title race.
Inter can register a win and go on top of the table with 3 points. But Bologna have a great record against top sides this season. Siniša Mihajlović’s side have held Juventus and Milan this season. As the former Nerazzurri player fights another round with cancer, his Bologna side have given their all this season to keep even the best at bay.
Bologna vs Inter Statistics and Encounters
Scoring goals is not a problem for Inter anymore and keeping the opposition out isn’t one either. Simone Inzaghi’s side have found what it takes to make a strong bid for the Scudetto. As Milan and Napoli struggle to find form, every win counts at this crucial stage. Inzaghi will look to make it six out of six against Bologna.
Inter’s form: W-W-W-W-W
Bologna’s form: D-D-W-D-L
Bologna have not lost in their last four games. And they’ve kept the likes of Milan and Juventus out in two of those four games. Inter might have a tough time breaking Bologna’s defence unlike earlier in the season when the Nerazzurri put six past them.
