    • Bologna
    • Internazionale
    • - That's it Inter have managed to win for the first time this season.
    • 90+3 Muntari launches clear. Anywhere. Inter close to a first win.
    • 90+2 Inter working really hard to get the ball back. This one is all but over - although five minutes of injury time could mean otherwise.
    • 90' Milito has been excellent since he came on and he draws a free-kick to waste a valuable few more seconds.
    • 88' Inter running the clock down now.
    • 86' The corner is cleared with relative ease but Inter soon have a free-kick which Muntari is over. Lucio sneaks across his man at the near post to head home and that's all three points to the visitors. 3-1.
    • 84' Muntari stings the palms of Agliardi from distance to win a corner.
    • 82' He holds his nerve and lifts the ball into the top of the net. 2-1.
    • 81' Morleo is sent off and Milito has the chance to steal a win.
    • 80' Milito is brought down in the area. Penalty. Clumsy challenge there from Morleo.
    • 80' Diamanti wins a free-kick on the edge of the area but it is wasted - another let off for the visitors.
    • - We are having some technical issues. Apologies.
    • 78' Samual fouls Ramierz to put his colleagues under pressure again, but they clear with ease.
    • 76' Milito on for Forlan.
    • 74' Inter on the attack now and Jonathan has an effort that flies wide of the post from distance. Milito warming up.
    • 71' And Agliardi is on to replace but it does not affect the home side's momentum who are straight up the other end on the attack again.
    • 69' Slight hiatus for an injury to Gillet who may have to go off.
    • 67' Bottom right and Bologna are level but they scarcely deserve it!! 1-1.
    • 66' But from the corner Samuel gives away a penalty for a silly foul on Portanova, Diamanti to take...
    • 65' Another free-kick for the home side and Cesar does spectacularly well to push the thunderous effort around the post from Ramirez. Great save.
    • 64' Di Vaio has put in a great shift and run himself into the ground - he is replaced by Acquafresca while Obi makes way for Muntari.
    • 63' Bologna break but the final ball again is poor.
    • 62' Forlan receives the ball and elects to shoot from distance but his effort is tame.
    • 61 Perez is hauled back by Chivu after an enterprising run. More pressure for Inter but they cope well enough clearing for a corner, which is cleared. Jonathan leads the break but is hauled down for a free-kick.
    • 59' Inter now camped deep in their own territory and the home side build well down the flanks until Chivu intercepts. Diamanti lobs in the long throw but Lucio gets a head to it. It is up in the air but Cesar claims calmly.
    • 56' Far more open second half here which can only go in the home side's favour.
    • 54' Early sub Coutinho off for Jonathan.
    • 52' Chance!! Diamanti finds Di Vaio but Cesar manages to push his downward header around the post.
    • 49' Coutinho runs at the home defence and when his effort is blocked Cambiasso manages to dig out an effort and his effort clears Gillet but clips the crossbar.
    • 47' Bologna start the half with a little more composure but are soon on the back foot.
    • 46' Back underway and Bologna kick us off.
    • - Half-time.
    • 45+2 Samuel snuffs out a chance for Di Vaio. Bologna finish in the ascendancy.
    • 45' Chivu hauls down Diamanti just outside the box to put some pressure on the visitors' lead with the half coming to a close. The felled Diamanti's free-kick clips a head in the wall and goes out for a corner. Lucio with a big header to clear for the away side.
    • 43' Ranieri will just want his side to see this to half time now but there is a nervousness in their play now and Lucio does well to intercept a through-ball destined for Di Vaio.
    • 41' Bologna have had more of the ball since the goal and Inter are rewarded a soft free-kick when Lucio goes down under the challenge of Ramirez.
    • 39' GOOOOAL!! Inter take the lead that their play has threatened. Cambiasso found him with a lay-off to the edge of the box and although Gillet got a hand to the strike it snuck in at the near post.
    • 37' Bologna have a free-kick in a promising area tight to the edge of the box and need quality here. Kone looks to catch Cesar unawares but would have been better off playing the percentages.
    • 35' Pazzini thinks he has the better of Antonsson in the channel and looks to prod the ball through the legs of Gillet but he is adjudged to have pushed the defender in the build-up.
    • 33' A bit of a pattern is emerging here. Inter having more of the play and are unlucky to not be ahead and when Bologna do attack they are lacking that quality in the final third.
    • 32' Bologna utilise a switch of play very well to create space down their left but the final ball from Ramierz lacks quality and is easily cleared.
    • 30' Bologna look to break but Di Vaio is stopped in his tracks but the assistant referees' flag.
    • 29' Forlan runs the channels well again - this time he clips a ball across the front post and Pazzini is a whisker away from giving Inter the lead with an attempted diving header but it is just out of his reach.
    • 28' Samuel does well to see the ball out of play with Diamanti showing an interest.
    • 27' Brief hiatus for an injury to Casarini. Back underway.
    • 25' Forlan and Pazzini very nearly link-up but Forlan is crowded out of the ball. If he got to it, deep in the Bologna area, he was in on goal.
    • 23' Coutinho tracks back well to put a stop to a very rare foray forward from the home side.
    • 22' Inter really upping the pressure now. Bologna seem more than happy to soak up pressure but they really, really are offering very little going forward at the moment.
    • 20' The bombardment continues from the visitors and they really need to make more of this pressure.
    • 18' Nagatomo wins a the free-kick now - this indiscipline could come to cost the home side. Poor delivery. Goal kick.
    • 17' All Inter now.
    • 16' Coutinho wins a free-kick down the right which Forlan delivers. Bologna clear for a corner which is cleared to Coutinho on the edge, he shapes and strikes just wide of the post.
    • 14' Claudio Ranieri will be pleased with the way his side have started going forward but they are looking porous at the back.
    • 12' Screamer from Forlan but it strikes the post. Gillet beaten there with a wonderful strike from outside the box.
    • 10' Di Vaio looks offside but the assistant waves play on. He is clean through but at an angle and with Cesar standing up big he can't get his foot around the effort and thrashes over the bar.
    • 8' Frantic start to this one.
    • 6' Big chance!! Forlan takes the resulting free-kick from 30 yards out right of centre and his delivery causes all kinds of disarray in the home side's penalty area. The ball falls to Lucio six yards out but he can only fire straight at Gillet who clears with his legs.
    • 5' Inter looking to threaten now and Cambiasso finds Pazzini with a good vertical ball which cuts out two or three Bologna players but the front man is hauled down.
    • 3' First oppotunity for Forlan to run with the ball but under pressure his ball inside has too much pace on it.
    • 2' Early mistake from Lucio and the home side have a corner. Easily cleared at the front post. Inter re-group and Bologna stroke the ball around under very little pressure.
    • 1' We're underway in Ranieri's first game in charge..
    • - Bologna line-up: Gillet, Casarini, Portanova, Antonsson, Morleo, Pérez, Mudingayi, Kone, Ramirez, Diamanti, M. Di Vaio. Subs: Agliardi, . Loria, Acquafresca, Paponi, Pulzetti, Vitale, Krhin. /// Inter line-up: Júlio César, Y. Nagatomo, Lúcio, W. Samuel, C. Chivu, Phillipe Couti, Zanetti, Cambiassoi, Obi, Pazzini, Forlan. Subs: Castellazzi, Muntari, Zárate, Álvarez, Jonathan, Milito, Castaignos.
    • 16:55 Regular faces Andrea Raggi, Simone Loria, Nicolo Cherubin, Saphir Taider, Alessandro Diamanti and Gaston Ramírez all doubtful with injuries for Bologna. While Inter are without Ivan Cordoba, Emiliano Viviano, Andrea Polic, Maicon, Thiago Motta and Dejan Stankovic. Ranieri has said Wesley Sneijder has a muscle problem and is unlikely to be risked.
    • 16:50 Bisoli quote in full: "Inter are coming here wounded - it will be a difficult challenge for us. With the change of coach they will have found new motivations, as well as new work methods so we must be ready."
    • 16:45 Rossoblù have fared little better and Wednesday’s draw against a resurgent Juventus represented Pierpaolo Bisoli’s first point of the season. And Bisoli expects another tough test from a “wounded” Inter.
    • 16:40 Ranieri, who is Inter's fifth coach in the last 15 months, is under no illusions about the challenge he faces saying: "I am not a coach that believes in winning formulas but rather in winning players. I have asked my players to fight from the first to the last minute."
    • 16:35 Former Genoa boss Gian Piero Gasperini was relieved of his duties following Tuesday's 3-1 defeat at Novara and was replaced by Claudio Ranieri.
    • 16:30 Both sides have made inauspicious starts to the season, with Inter above their hosts only on goal difference. In fact, only once before has the Nerazzurri only picked up one point from its opening three games – in 1935/36 – and, in a twist of fate, Bologna won the Scudetto that year.
