Bologna v Inter Milan: Predictions, Tips and Odds

Inter Milan have long been setting the pace in Italy's Serie A this season, but they have a tough assignment on the cards this weekend as they visit top-four chasers Bologna on Saturday.

Inter have accumulated an impressive 72 points from 27 matches, but Bologna are a tough nut to crack at the Renato Dall'Ara and will not make life easy for their Milanese opponents.

They were 2-1 winners away to Atalanta last time out, while Inter won by the same scoreline against Genoa on Monday.

This could be a tight game but it is a fixture not to be missed in Serie A.

Bologna v Inter Milan betting predictions and tips

Inter Milan to win - 23/20

It is a rarity to see Inter odds-against to win a match in Serie A this season and backing them at 23/20 is an opportunity punters should seriously consider.

Granted, Bologna are going well in Italy's top flight and their impressive 2-1 win over Atalanta last Sunday made it six wins on the spin in the league.

But Inter are on a 12-game winning run in all competitions and as part of that run, they have beaten the likes of Lazio, Napoli, Fiorentina, Juventus, Roma, Atletico Madrid and Atalanta themselves.

Simone Inzaghi's men are certainly not fazed by the big occasions, as demonstrated in their 1-0 win over Atletico in the Champions League last month.

In that game, Inter denied their opponents a single shot on target and controlled the flow of the game.

They know where the goal is with 69 goals recorded in Serie A this season but as the old adage goes, it is defences which wins league titles, and that is proving to be the case for Inter this season.

They have the discipline at the back to limit Bologna, who have faltered in the final third at times this season, racking up nine draws in Serie A.

Inter have won 23 of their 27 games in the top flight and can again come out on top.

Under 2.5 goals - 7/10

Although Inter look a value bet to win this game, punters should not expect them to blow Bologna out of the water.

Indeed, Bologna are conceding on average less than a goal per game (24 in 27 matches) and they will look to frustrate the visitors in front of goal.

Inter have conceded only 13 goals all season in Serie A, though, so may not need much to secure the three points and it is worth noting they have won by a 1-0 margin four times since the start of the year.

That certainly makes appeal in the correct score betting at 6/1 but under 2.5 goals could also be a wise selection at 7/10.

The bet has clicked in Bologna's last two home assignments against Fiorentina and Verona and goals could again be at a premium at the Renato Dall'Ara, where the hosts have conceded only seven goals in 14 league fixtures this season.

Inter, meanwhile, have let in only six league goals on their travels in the 2023/24 campaign.

Lautaro Martinez to score - 15/8

Central to Inter's dominance of Serie A this season has been the form of electrifying forward Lautaro Martinez.

The Argentinian marksman has scored 23 goals in 25 matches in Italy's top flight this season, averaging a goal every 89 minutes.

He has scored three goals in his club's last three matches and was on target when the sides met earlier this season in Serie A, scoring after 13 minutes.

He is 9/2 to score the first goal of the game but punters could be better-placed backing him to score at any time at 15/8.
