Inter is currently in a great form. After a tough 3:0 defeat against Napoli in the beginning of December they recorded six victories in the row in all competitions. They also didn't concede more than one goal in those six matches. Of course, their primary goal is one of the top three places in Serie A, but they will fight for the only trophy they can realistically win this season - Coppa Italia. Inter don't have any issues with injured players, all the best players are available for the forthcoming match.
Bologna's main preoccupation is to avoid relegation and they are currently 14th on the table with 13 points advantage over Palermo. Most teams that are positioned in the top of the table easily defeated Bologna this season, so Inter is certainly a favorite. However, it is interesting that Bologna snatched a point from their previous match played on Giuseppe Meazza. Bologna have some problems with injured players: Saphir Taider, Sadiq Umar, Filip Helander and Simone Verdi are injured for the forthcoming match.
Inter is the absolute favorite to record a victory in the forthcoming match. Considering Bologna's performances against the big teams, we expect Inter to win without conceding a goal.
