Inter Milan face a crisis at the club if they fail to win on Saturday when they travel to Bologna to face another club that has taken only one point from its first two Serie A matches, but the difference is — as Bologna Coach Pippo Inzaghi noted to Sempre Inter — the Nerazzurri entered this season with title ambitions, and those could quickly fade without a win in the match that will live stream from Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
“Inter are aiming for the Scudetto this season, it goes without saying that on paper there’s no contest between us and them,” Inzaghi said. “We have nothing to lose though. We’ll need the perfect performance.”
After settling for a draw at home against Torino after a shock defeat to Sassuolo in their opening match, Inter will have an entirely new dimension when they ace Bologna, with the comeback from injury of Belgian midfield “enforcer” Radja Nainggolan, who was acquired from AS Roma over the summer in a $41 million transfer deal, according to the BBC.
The 30-year-old not only brings a physical element to Inter’s approach, he also brings one of the most colorful and controversial personalities in the sport, with his numerous tattoos and unabashed smoking habit in a sport where physical endurance is all-important, as described in a profile of the Belgian by These Football Times.
Both Inter and Bologna have experienced difficulty putting the ball in the net so far in the eagle’s stages of the 2018/2019 Serie A campaign. Despite taking 28 shots in their first two games, the Rossoblu have yet to score, while Inter Milan have scored twice, both times against Torino, from 27 shots, eight on target, according to Sempre Inter statistics.
