Bologna vs Inter Milan Prediction
Napoli’s recent capitulation means the Serie A race is down to the two Milan clubs. Inter Milan hold a slight advantage, only if they win their game in hand against Bologna.
Simone Inzaghi’s side have stabilsed in recent weeks following a poor start to the year and are the overwhelming favourites to claim maximum points. Bologna have little left to play for, so the visitors could claim a comfortable win.
Prediction: Bologna 0-2 Inter Milan.
