Bologna winless at Inter since 2002

The last time Bologna tasted success at home against Inter was on 10 February 2002, a 2-1 Serie A win (Pecchia 56, Zauli 74, Seedorf 89). In the 8 matches contested at the Stadio Dall'Ara since then, the Bologna have managed just one draw against the Nerazzurri, losing the other 7.

Bologna have scored in last 13 home games

Bologna have hit the target at least once in each of their last 13 competitive fixtures played at the Dall'Ara (starting last season and continuing in 2012/13), 22 goals in total. The last time they failed to find the net at home was on 22 January, when they were held to a 0-0 draw by Parma.

10-game scoring streak on the road for the Nerazzurri

Inter have scored at least once in their last 10 away trips, knocking in a total of 21 goals. The last time they failed to score away from the Meazza was on 22 April when they drew 0-0 against Fiorentina in Tuscany.

Inter's 230-minute Serie A shutout

The last time Inter conceded in Serie A was on 30 September (a 2-1 home win over Fiorentina), Romulo scoring in the 40th minute. Since then, the Nerazzurri defence hasn't been breached in the 50 remaining minutes of that game, plus the 0-1 away victory over AC Milan and the 2-0 home win against Catania - a clean sheet lasting 230 minutes. Inter's last goal conceded in any competition was on 4 October, when they beat Neftchi 1-3 in Azerbaijan.

Inter gunning for 8th consecutive away win

Stramaccioni's side have claimed victory in their last 7 away matches: against Hajduk Split and Vaslui (0-3 and 0-2 respectively in the Europa League), Pescara, Torino and Chievo Verona (0-3, 0-2 and 0-2 in Serie A), Neftchi Baku (1-3 in the Europa League) and AC Milan (0-1 in Serie A). The last time the Nerazzurri didn't win on the road was in the 3-1 defeat to Lazio on 13 May (Serie A). They have won every away match in 2012/13. Should Inter string together an 8th away victory today, it would be their best run since December 2006 - March 2007, when they managed 9 consecutive away wins in Serie A and the Coppa Italia.

BOLOGNA - Inter made it seven wins in a row with a convincing 3-1 victory at Bologna's Stadio Dall'Ara in Week 9 of the 2012/13 Serie A.

Cambiasso's 27th-minute free kick found Ranocchia well placed to nod home at the far post, the defender becoming the ninth different Nerazzuri player on the score sheet this season. Milito celebrated his 100th league appearance for the club by scoring the second after the break: an easy finish wrapping up a lethal counter-attack that passed from Handanovic through Gargano and Palacio. Bologna halved the deficit when Cherubin headed in Diamanti's corner but Inter quickly restored their two-goal cushion as Cambiasso dinked over Agliardi following a neatly worked move involving Milito and Palacio.

Inter move up to second in the table on 21 points awaiting the result of tonight's fixture between Napoli and Chievo.
