Bisoli: 'We'll fight Inter too'

Bologna turned a corner by holding Juventus and Pierpaolo Bisoli believes “we can do the same with Inter” on Claudio Ranieri's debut.

The Rossoblu had lost both opening games 2-0 against Fiorentina and Lecce, but fought back to draw 1-1 in Turin on Wednesday night.

“We never gave in against top of the table Juve and we can do the same with all the others, including Inter,” said the Coach.

“My lads had to be put in the best condition to express themselves. On Wednesday we found the right mentality and will try to hold on to that going forward.”

Inter only have two points and sacked Gian Piero Gasperini, bringing in Ranieri for his first training session on Thursday.

“I watched their last few games, but with Ranieri's arrival I don't know if the team will make the same movements. Aside from the great champions in the squad, they'll bring something different and we have to be ready for it.

“There is some consolation that Wesley Sneijder is out injured, as he is the one who invents something out of nowhere. Inter lose an important reference point, but they have many other talents and we must never get distracted.

“Don't forget the Nerazzurri will do everything they can to prove they are not the side we've seen so far this season.”

Jean-Francois Gillet is in the squad despite being knocked unconscious during the final minutes of the 1-1 draw in Turin, but it remains to be seen if he is fit to play in goal.

Bologna: Agliardi, Gillet, Lombardi; Antonsson, Loria, Morleo, Portanova, Rickler, Vitale; Casarini, Kone, Krhin, Mudingayi, Perez, Pulzetti; Acquafresca, Di Vaio, Diamanti, Paponi, Ramirez, Vantaggiato
