Serie A - Football: Inter look to move ahead in Scudetto race

Veteran Edin Dzeko has scored 13 goals for Inter in Serie A so far this season

As Inter Milan look to leapfrog their arch rivals AC Milan at the top of the Serie A table, all eyes will be on Wednesday night's game at Bologna.

The race for Lo Scudetto now looks like it could be a straight shootout between Inter and AC and the pressure is on the Nerazzurri to get the win at the Renato Dall'Ara.

Napoli dip leaves a two-horse race

It looked like Napoli would be firmly in the mix for the title race heading into the last few games, but the pressure has taken its toll on the Azzurri in recent weeks.

A draw with Roma, sandwiched between defeats to both Fiorentina and Empoli, means Napoli are now seven points behind frontrunners Milan - who are 1.12 to be crowned chamions.

Meanwhile, Juventus left themselves a mountain to climb due to a poor start to the campaign and have never really been in the title reckoning.

One side who both Milan and Juve failed to overcome recently was Bologna and manager Sinisa Mihajlovic will be hoping his Rossoblu can derail another team's title charge on Wednesday night.

Inter a team in fine form

Having last tasted defeat against Sassuolo back on 20th February, Simone Inzaghi's Inter have managed to go 11 games unbeaten in all competitions.

Inter, who are 6.50 to win the title, head to the Renato Dall'Ara on the back of five consecutive wins, including a 1-0 league win over Juventus and a 3-0 demolition of AC Milan in the Coppa Italia.

It's Inter as the firm favourites at 1.33 to claim the three points against Bologna that would see them go one point ahead of Milan in the Serie A standings.

A draw between the teams is available at 5.50, while the hosts are 7.50 to cause a major upset and secure the win in Emilia-Romagna.

A happy hunting ground for Inter

The Renato Dall'Ara will certainly hold no fears for Inter as they make the 224km trip on Wednesday.

Inter are unbeaten in their last 16 visits to Bologna and managed to secure a 6-1 win over Mihajlovic's side earlier this season at the San Siro.

Lautaro Martinez opened the scoring after just six minutes in that game and the Argentinian is 3.75 to be first goalscorer again on Wednesday night.

Martinez is also available at 3.60 to score two or more goals in this crucial encounter for the visitors.

Bologna proving a tough nut to crack

While Bologna have dropped points in April which has seen them stay stuck in mid-table, they have shown they can cause some of the big teams problems.

Bologna managed to grind out a goalless draw at AC Milanat the start of the month, before going into to battle it out for a 1-1 draw at Juventus.

While Inter have been impressive in recent months, Inzaghi will have taken note of those performances and how Bologna managed to neutralise some top attacking talent, knowing that there is no room for error as the season enters its final stages.
