Each of Bologna’s last four Serie A fixtures have produced over 2.5 total match goals, and they’ve netted at least two goals in nine of their previous 11 SA home matches.
However, they haven’t scored twice in a SA H2H fixture since February 2002 – which was the last time Bologna defeated Inter Milan at home losing ten of the 13 H2H home matches since.
Furthermore, Bologna have failed to win any of the five SA matches that they started as an outsider this season.
Regardless, Bologna’s fixtures have been close affairs, with all seven of their SA games that ended with a winner coming via a single goal.
Scoring first (nine out of ten) and leading at half-time (seven) has become a habit for Inter Milan this SA season.
A rewarding habit too, as the ‘Nerazzurri’ have gone on to win eight of those nine occasions in which they netted first.
However Inter are without a clean sheet in five SA fixtures, and have conceded at least twice in three of their last four SA games.
Furthermore, they have kept just one first-half clean sheet in their last four league games, after starting the season with six in six.
Regardless, six of the nine wins/losses in Inter’s SA matches have come via a single-goal margin.
Players to watch: Rodrigo Palacio has given Bologna the lead with each of his three SA strikes, whilst Lautaro Martinez has been Inter’s first goalscorer in all three SA road trips in which he’s scored.
