Inter Milan’s dream of reaching UEFA Champions League playoff stage this season lives, as they returned with big 3-2 victory from Germany achieved against Borussia Moenchengladbach.
Sixth round duel against Shakhtar Donetsk is going to be deciding one! In meantime, Conte’s team returns to domestic obligations and attempt to narrow the gap from 1st placed AC Milan which is currently at five points.
They will welcome middle-table squad Bologna on Saturday night and any other result than home win would be a big surprise.
Sinisa Mihajlovic is returning home once again but as Bologna’s head manager. Can he ruin plans of his former team? Bookies don’t think so, offering super-high 6.00 odds on away win here.

Inter Milan vs Bologna Prediction
By looking at Inter Milan’s results in Serie A so far, we draw a conclusion they only had two slip-ups so far. First was a loss to AC Milan in derby game, and second 2-2 draw versus Parma.
All other games ended with decent results, and consistency is what bring titles on the long run.
We have zero doubts Nerazzurri will claim victory against Bologna on Saturday, the only remaining question is if they can keep a clean sheet as well. Seven out of the last nine Serie A games ended with at least one goal in Inter’s net.
Their opponents scored in seven out of last eight duels across competitions, so we are picking home win & BTTS option. Mihajlovic’s team is sitting in 10th place with 12 points on their account.
As for the secondary option, Lautaro Martinez has improved in form lately. Argentine striker scored five goals in Serie A so far, and we fancy the 2.00 odds to see his name on scoresheet this Saturday.
