INTER v BOLOGNA- SERIE A
March 12 2016, San Siro, 19:45 GMT+0
Inter is currently 5th in Serie A, coming after a win against Palermo (3:1). Bologna is mid table and are coming into this match after a draw against Carpi (0:0).
Comparing forms of those two teams Bologna comes on top, when we look at last 15 matches. Even though the difference in points taken in latest matches is only 2, we can not neglect them. Last H2H ended in Milan squad favour (0:1), but we must take into consideration, that at that time Inter was 1st in the table, whereas Bologna had a terrible record of (2-0-7).
Inter started this season really good, but their form failed recently, with only 21 points in the last 15 matches (1.4 per game). Their goal, to finish 3rd seems to high for me. Drawing against Verona and Atalanta surely does not help them get any closer to that goal. Also loosing against Sassuolo and Lazio at San Siro is a sign of needed improvement. Maybe top 5 will be more suited for Inter with current performances.
As for missing players, only Jovetić is sidelined.
Bologna has improved since Roberto Donadoni took over the squad, actually Bologna lost only 1 match in the last 10. Drawing against Juventus and Fiorentina is a great accomplishment, as these two teams are higher up the table as today’s opponents. I also might mention 2 wins against AC Milan and Genoa on the road, both (0:1).
In conclusion, Bologna is a surprise after being promoted from Serie B and has shown they are a competitive side to all Serie A teams after new coach was appointed. With high confidence going into this match I can expect good resistance by the visitors. Bet +1 on Bologna as it has great value.
