  • End of 2nd Half
FT

Full-time! Inter make it nine league wins in a row and move EIGHT points clear at the top of Serie A with this hard-fought victory over Bologna.

90'+2 

Inter concede possession in their own half but their mistake goes unpunished as Juwara's cross evades everyone in the middle.

90'+1

Inter sub: Barella makes way for Vecino for the last couple of minutes as Inter look to see this one out.

90'

Juwara whips a delicious cross into the box but Bologna only win the corner. Skriniar clears with a stooped header at the near post and Inter then win a free-kick to relieve the pressure. THREE minutes will be added on here.

Time is running out for Bologna. Despite having lots of possession and displaying plenty of endeavour, they haven't really troubled Handanovic.

79'

Frustration for Inter as Sanchez makes a lazy run behind the Bologna defence and is flagged offside.

- 
76'

Close! Inter win another free-kick, Lukaku takes the responsibility on this occasion and although he gets his shot up and over the wall, he can't get the dip required to test Ravaglia.

74' 

Sanchez slams a free-kick into the wall for a corner. A disappointing effort.

Chance for Bologna! Sixty seconds after being introduced as a sub, Svanberg has a great opportunity to equalise. But he catches a first-time volley all wrong, and that is high and not at all pretty as the ball lands in row-Z.

68' 

Barella leads yet another Inter attack on the break with another driving run down the middle. He rolls it to Lukaku, whose shot is deflected behind for a corner.

66' 

Schouten follows the run of Martinez all of the way and beats him to Lukaku's teasing cross from the left flank.

64'

Bologna chance! Sansone finds himself unmarked to meet De Silvestri's cross, he tries a first-time effort that comes off his shin. Handanovic is well positioned to make the save, but that was a good chance for Bologna.

63' 

Ranocchia gets an important touch to make the interception and break up a dangerous Bologna attack.

58' 

Barrow finds himself one-on-one with Ranocchia, he carves inside and curls a shot well wide of goal. With just over half an hour remaining, this game remains in the balance.

56' 

Ranocchia meets Eriksen's corner delivery with a downward header but it's nowhere near goal and Bologna hack the danger clear.

51'

Off the post! But here come Inter on the counter-attack - Martinez wraps a shot around the defender and can only watch on as it crashes agonisingly off the post. Barella then fires over on the rebound.

49' 

Soriano has a shot blocked as Bologna continue to apply pressure.

47'

Just over! Bologna have made a bright start to the second-half and they come close to grabbing an equaliser. Sansone swivels and gets a shot away, and it's just over the bar.

  • 2nd Half
46'

Kick-off! We are underway in the second-half!

Half-time! Inter lead at the break thanks to Romelu Lukaku's 20th goal of the season. As it stands, they are going eight points clear at the top of Serie A!

45'+3

Bologna should be level! A corner delivery finds Soriano at the near post, but his first-time effort is over the bar from point-blank range!

45'+1

Handanovic is finally forced into action! Olsen lays it off to Schouten, who shoots from the edge of the penalty area. It's a decent strike but the Inter goalkeeper is saving that all day long.

45'

Three minutes will be added on at the end of the first-half.

- 
43' 

Bologna have really struggled in the final third. A lot of their build-up play has been nice and tidy, but the final pass and decision has let them down.

40' 

Inter threaten on the counter again, with Martinez playing a diagonal ball which Barella controls on the edge of the area. The ball sits up nicely for him but he fires his half-volley over the bar.

38' 

Oh dear. Bologna win a free-kick in a threatening position, but Olsen balloons the ball high over the bar. That is truly awful.

- 

Here's the moment Inter took the lead...

35'

Close! Ranocchia almost grabs a rare goal but can't direct his header on goal from an Inter corner. After a bright start, things are beginning to go pear shaped for Bologna.

34'

Bologna sub: Tomiyasu has picked up a knock and is replaced by De Silvestri.

30' 

Although Bologna have dominated possession in the opening half hour, they have yet to threaten Handanovic.

28' 

Schouten makes an important challenge on Eriksen in midfield before winning a free-kick. Very tidy play.

- 
26' 

Eriksen is quickly closed down and is forced backwards after receiving the ball on the edge of the penalty area. Bologna have been very disciplined and well organised in defence so far.

23' 

It has been a much more tentative affair than the chaotic derby between Torino and Juventus earlier. Plenty of time for that to change of course.

20' 

Barella finds himself in acres of space to drive into. He switches it to Hakimi on the right, but his cross is blocked and Bologna recover the situation.

19' 

The ball breaks kindly for Sansone in midfield and he opts for an early shot. It's the wrong decision as he blazes it way over the bar.

17'

Just wide! Inter win a free-kick, 30 yards out. Eriksen tries an ambitious effort and catches it quite well. But it drifts just wide of Ravaglia's far post. Good effort, that.

16' 

Inter always pose a threat on the counter, though, and Tomiyasu is needed to make a headed clearance from Eriksen's teasing cross.

15' 

But, so far, Inter are struggling to get out of their own half.

14' 

This is a fantastic opportunity for Inter to take a real hold of the title race. AC Milan and Juventus both dropped points earlier today and a victory for Conte's men would take them eight points clear with a game still in hand over most of their rivals.

12' 

Bologna have had the lion's share of possession in the early stages. Home manager Sinisa Mihajlovic will be delighted with what he has witnessed so far.

9' 

Olsen slips a pass into the feet of Soriano, who makes a late run into the box. He's forced wide and his cross into the middle evades everyone. But this is positive play from Bologna.

8'

A first effort at goal from Lukaku who gets his shot away after a nice little link-up with Martinez. It's comfortable for Ravaglia, though.

7' 

More defending for Inter to do as Barrow drives down the left flank but his cross is too close to Handanovic.

5' 

Bologna have made a good start to the contest and they come into this game in good form having won their last two.

3' 

Ranocchia gives Barrow a little shove in the back and the Bologna forward goes down inside the penalty area. The referee has a clear view of the incident and allows play to continue. No penalty.

FIVE minutes until kick-off! It's Bologna versus Inter, who are looking for a ninth straight victory in Serie A. It's LIVE and it's NEXT!

19:37 

Bologna's danger man is Skov Olsen, who impressed whilst on international duty, scoring twice and registering two assists for Denmark. But the hosts are missing a number of players including Lukasz Skorupski and Rodrigo Palacio.

19:35 

Samir Handanovic is back between the sticks for Inter after recovering from Covid-19, while Andrea Ranocchia is named in defence ahead of Stefan de Vrij, who is on the bench. The visitors are missing Ivan Perisic and Arturo Vidal to injury.
