Rodrigo Palacio and Diego Milito form an all-Argentine front two for Inter, as they take on Bologna’s brand new trident.
Andrea Stramaccioni is looking for an eighth consecutive away win in all competition and the history of this fixture seems to back him up.
Bologna have scraped one point from eight meetings since their last home victory against Inter back in 2002.
Both sides have injury problems to contend with as Philippe Coutinho, Wesley Sneijder, MacDonald Mariga, Joel Obi, Cristian Chivu and Dejan Stankovic haven’t made the trip.
Antonio Cassano is rested, so Palacio and Milito are the front pairing while Yuto Nagatomo and Gaby Mudingayi step back into midfield.
The Rossoblu miss Diego Perez, Gianluca Curci, Cesare Natali, Robert Acquafresca and Henry Gimenez.
Bologna debut a new trident attack with Alessandro Diamanti supporting Alberto Gilardino and Manolo Gabbiadini.
