With the Nerazzurri are experiencing their annual winter sicko mode, as they welcome Sinisa Mihajlovic’s Bologna to Stadio Giuseppe Meazza for his first game in charge of the Rossoblu. Bologna are winless in their last 7 league games and haven’t won a game against Inter in their previous 6 meetings.

Attack:

The Nerazzurri have scored 31 goals in Serie A, 28 of which where scored inside the penalty area. Mauro Icardi equaled his longest scoring drought, 5 games, last weekend. Inter have not score more than 1 goal in 7 Serie A games, last time they did was against Roma in 2nd December. Politano is their assist provider 3 and most chances created (33) but will miss the match due to suspension.

Bologna have the worst attack in the Serie A, with 16 goals, with just 9 goals scored between 8 forwards.

Defence:

Inter have conceded 15 goals and haven’t conceded a goal at home in 7 games. Brozovic has won the most tackles with 58 and had the most Interceptions, with 30. Skriniar has made 71 clearances, 19 more than any of his teammates. He has also blocked the most shots, 20.

The Rossoblu have the third worst defence with 34 goals conceded.

Moving the ball:

Inter average the most ball possession per game with 56.3% but are behind six other teams in terms of chances created. Brozovic has completed 1178 passes, 26 more than any other player in the league. Borja Valero has the best passing accuracy at 93.6%. Inter have made the most crosses per game with 29, resulting in 10 goals, the highest in the league with Cagliari.

Bologna are one of the worst sides in keeping possession at 43.2%, but surely Mihajlovic will be eager to impress his new supporters today.

WhoScored.com rating leaders:

Brozovic (7.23), Skriniar (7.02) and D’Ambrosio (6.95) are the highest rated players at Inter. Notable absentees here are Icardi and Perisic who don’t qualify in the top 3.

For Bologna, it is Santander (6.99), Palacio (6.90) and Mattiello (6.79) who are their highest rated players.
