Inter Milan proved impossible to stop against Bologna, even as they never quite produced their best football.

This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

Yesterday’s match always looked like it would be an interesting test for both teams.

For Bologna, facing the league leaders meant seeing just how formidable they have become at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.

Playing in their home stadium, the Rossoblu had only lost one match this season, against AC Milan on the opening day of the campaign.

This was the bedrock of the Emilian team’s surprise push for Champions League football.

And for Inter, Bologna would be one of the sternest tests in the course of their winning streak that has so far lasted for all of 2024.

Inter Prove Impossible To Stop Vs Bologna

Bologna did certainly hold up their end.

Thiago Motta’s team played an eye-catching and effective style of football to cause Inter problems.

Meanwhile, Inter were not quite their usual selves. This was certainly at least partly the result of some high-profile absences from the starting eleven.

All of Lautaro Martinez, Federico Dimarco, and Benjamin Pavard got a rest.

So on paper, perhaps, all the dynamics were there for Inter’s winning run to finally come to an end.

Simone Inzaghi has masterminded a real winning machine for much of the campaign so far. But with the fixtures piling up and the need to rotate the squad, a match as tough as yesterday’s could have proven a bridge too far.

And few would have held a loss in such a tough away stadium against Inter.

But the Nerazzurri just kept winning anyway. Even this high-flying Bologna did not find the solution to stop them.

Inter’s win came from a foundation of a rock-solid defense. It was yet another clean sheet in Serie A for the Nerazzurri and for Yann Sommer.

And at the other end, the Nerazzurri found a way to be decisive.

It was an unlikely scorer who ultimately took the spoils for Inter – Yann Bisseck.

But it just took one moment for the German to head in an excellent Alessandro Bastoni cross, and it was yet another win for Inter in 2024.
