Inter Milan vs. Bologna: Preview and TV schedule

Mario Carlini / Iguana Press

Relegation strugglers Bologna visit stuttering Inter Milan in Saturday's late kickoff.

It has been a rotten season for Bologna, who sit just a place and a point outside the relegation zone heading into Serie A's round 32. They head to the San Siro to face fifth-placed Inter Milan on Saturday, as part of a nightmare run-in which sees them play Parma, Juventus, Fiorentina and Lazio among others. They need all the points they can get their hands on, and their match against the stuttering nerazzurri may be one of their best chances to pick some up.

Inter may be up in fifth place, but have only picked up two points in their last three games; losing to Atalanta, and being held to a draws against Udinese and Livorno. They have more than enough to brush an extremely poor Bologna aside, but having underperformed throughout the season, Davide Ballardini should be optimistic of picking up an unlikely point or three.

Inter's only injury doubt is defender Hugo Campagnaro, while Bologna will be without long-term injured midfielder Francesco Della Rocca. Striker Robert Acquafresca faces a fitness test.
