Line-ups: Bologna v Inter

Samir Handanovic is back after contracting COVID, as leaders Inter resume their season with a visit to Musa Barrow’s Bologna.

It kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), you can follow all the build-up and action as it happens on the LIVEBLOG.

This is a special fixture for Inter, as it is the first played since the club unveiled its new logo, I and M intertwined.

They can also extend their lead, because Milan were held to a 1-1 draw by Sampdoria.

The Nerazzurri saw their last Serie A game with Sassuolo postponed due to a COVID outbreak, which saw Handanovic, Stefan de Vrij, Danilo D’Ambrosio and Matias Vecino infected.

They have all been given the all-clear, although only Handanovic returns to the starting XI.

Ivan Perisic picked up an injury playing for Croatia and Arturo Vidal has still not fully recuperated from his knee operation.

Andrea Ranocchia therefore steps in for a rare start in defence.

Bologna have a lot of problems to deal with, as Rodrigo Palacio is suspended against his former club, with Lukasz Skorupski contracting COVID on international duty with Poland.

He joins injured Federico Santander, Aaron Hickey, Ibrahima Mbaye and Gary Medel on the sidelines.

Barrow is supported by Nicola Sansone, Roberto Soriano and Andreas Skov Olsen, the latter having made a huge impact playing for Denmark.

Skov Olsen scored two goals and provided two assists in games against Moldova and Austria.

Bologna: Ravaglia; Tomiyasu, Danilo, Soumaoro, Dijks; Schouten, Dominguez; Skov Olsen, Soriano, Sansone; Barrow

Inter: Handanovic; Skriniar, Ranocchia, A Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Brozovic, Eriksen, Young; Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez
