Our football match prediction:
Inter look unstoppable at the moment. The Nerazzurri came from behind to beat Chievo at their Stadio Giuseppe Meazza at the weekend, with the team extending their winning run to six games in all competitions. Inter are high on confidence ahead of the Coppa Italia game against Bologna, but we would not be surprised if coach Stefano Pioli mixes the squad in Tuesday’s football match. Anyhow, regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, we predict that the Nerazzurri will make it to the Italian Cup quarter-finals. Bologna did remarkably well to beat Crotona in their last league match, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Coppa Italia game against Inter. It has been four years since the Rossoblu last defeated Inter in a competitive match and they are unlikely to put an end to the negative trend.
