Inter is hosting Bologna at Giuseppe Meazza in round 4 of the Italian Serie A. Inter is undefeated in Serie A so far this season, and they were close to a positive result in the Champions League, but they ended up losing this game. Bologna is also undefeated in Serie A so far this season, and they have looked really well.
In that Champions League game, Inter was playing against Real Madrid at home, Inter has had 47% of ball possession, they have had 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 88% of the correct passes. This was a good game for Inter, they were dominant in the first half, they have created a lot of good chances, but they couldn’t score a goal, and it cost them in the end. Inter has conceded a goal in the 89th minute, and they ended up losing this game 0-1. As far as Serie A goes, Inter is in 4th place with 7 points, 9 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals, and despite them selling Lukaku, they were able to find their way to the net. Correa and Martinez have each scored 2 goals for Inter so far this season. Barella has added 3 assists. Sensi is the only injured player for Inter at the moment. I think Inter is still a good team, and I think they will do everything to defend the title, but they have a hard task ahead of them, especially if they advance to the next stage in the Champions League.
Bologna has scored 4 goals so far, while they conceded 3 goals, but they are also still undefeated in Serie A so far. Also with 7 points, Bologna is now in 6th place. De Silvestri is the leading goalscorer for Bologna with 2 scored goals. Michael and Schouten are both injured, and they will most likely miss this game. Bologna was playing against Hellas Verona in their latest game, and they have had 42% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 74% of the correct passes. This was a great game, and yes, we saw a few good chances, but only 1 goal. Bologna was the team that scored, and they have won this game 1-0. I think Bologna will stay far away from the relegation zone, but I’m not sure they have the depth to compete for the Europa League. The Conference League might be within Bologna’s reach this season, but that will also be a hard task to accomplish.
Bologna has had some success against Inter on the road in the past, and with Inter playing earlier this week, Bologna has the upper hand here. I think Inter will look to bounce back from that unfortunate loss to Real Madrid, and I think they will with a nice home win.
