Bologna vs Inter will take place at Stadio Renato Dell’Ara, and the Nerazzurri will look to extend their winning streak. Inter ended 2021 on a high and will try to start 2022 similarly. They have a 7-match winning streak that has helped them to gain the lead at the top of the table. Also, the Nerazzurri have not conceded a single goal in their last 6 games. Inter thrashed Bologna at San Siro in September with a scoreline of 6-1. So, the Nerazzurri will be coming into this match with immense confidence.
The odds are against the home side as they have been unable to beat Inter in their last 15 meetings. The Rossoblu are currently in 10th position in Serie A table with 27 points. They will look to have a more consistent run this year if they wish to move up and will try to get at least a point against Inter.
Bologna vs Inter: team news, tactics and score prediction
Dzeko, who scored a brace against Bologna in September, will not be available as he is COVID positive. Satriano and Cordaz are also out because of COVID. Joaquin Correa might get a rest as he has still not recovered properly from his hamstring injury. So, Sanchez can partner Lautaro at the top as the Chilean has been in terrific form. Inzaghi will also have to play Sensi, Gagliardini, Vidal, or Vecino as Calhanoglu will be serving his suspension.
Bologna are also affected by COVID as Hickey, Viola and Dominguez are in isolation. The home side will rely on Arnautovic for goals, and Inter will have to be wary of the Austrian striker. While Gary Medel will be keen to perform against his former club and could play in midfield because of the absentees.
Score Prediction: Bologna 1-3 Inter Milan.
