Bologna is hosting Inter at Renato Dall’Ara in round 20 of the Italian Serie A. Bologna is still playing hot and cold this season, but maybe this winter break was good for them. Inter is at the top of the table in Serie A, they are scoring a lot of goals, and they are on the right path to defend the title.
Bologna is now in 10th place with 27 points, and their offense is solid with 27 scored goals, but their defense is far from good. Bologna has conceded 31 goals so far this season, and they have lost 3 of their last 4 games. In their last game against Sassuolo, Bologna has had one of their best games of the season so far, and they have beaten them 0-3 on the road. Arnautovic is the leading goalscorer for Bologna with 6 goals, while Barrow added 5 goals and 3 assists. There are also a lot of injuries and covid cases in Bologna, but some players might recover by the game time. Bologna is far away from the relegation zone, and they are happy about it, but their ambitions are higher. Bologna can still reach the Europa League spot or at least the Conference League spot, but they will need to be more consistent in the future.
I know I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s very hard to bet against Inter right now. Inter is undefeated in Serie A in their last 11 games, and not only undefeated, Inter is on a 7-game winning streak in Serie A. Inter is the best offensive team in the league, and it’s hardly a competition, and they are also one of the best defensive teams with only 15 conceded goals. Thanks to their amazing run, Inter is at the top of the table with 46 points. Luckily for Inter, they are one of the teams with very few injuries at the moment, and that will certainly help them during this dense schedule. Martinez is the leading goalscorer for Inter with 11 goals, while Dzeko added 8 goals. Calhanoglu and Barella have both added 7 assists. Inter has been solid so far both at home and on the road, and they are marching towards another title, but we will see if Inter can play consistently well once the Champions League starts next month.
Bologna has had some success against Inter, but as I’ve mentioned, It’s very hard to bet against Inter. It’s hard to predict if this winter break was good or bad for a team, but Inter is the better team here overall, and I will side with them.
