Inter may have lost little more than a match in Bologna. While the Nerazzurri could regain the lead in the league and return to being masters of their own destiny for the title after this last match of the 20th day, they were surprised (2-1). This bad defeat, caused by a terrible mistake by goalkeeper Ionuț Radu at the end of the match, could be decisive for the award of the Scudetto, given that it is Milan that holds the Serie A title, with two points ahead of the its neighbor with four games remaining.

To say that everything started well for the Nerazzurri, perhaps a little too well after all. Ivan Perisic has in fact conceded the fastest goal of the season for Inter, with a clear shot that left Kukasz Skorupski no chance, after a brace and a small bridge (0-1, 3rd). What followed seemed like a long ordeal for Bologna, which did not see the light for long minutes against an initially irresistible Inter.

Inter may have lost the title with a dumpling
Then, the car jammed a bit for Simone Inzaghi’s men. After crouching and letting the storm pass, Bologna equalized thanks to Marko Arnautovic, who wins a little too easily in the air on a center by Musa Barrow (1-1, 28th). This goal stunned the defending champion a little, who ended up losing his temper and feeling frustrated by tripping over an impenetrable wall.
After the break, Inter’s multiple attempts in vain, in the wake of Federico Dimarco’s subsequent goals (47th, 49th, 54th), while Skorupski pulls out a reflex save against Joaquin Correa (55th) and is saved by Nicolas Dominguez, on his line (84th). And everything will have changed upon a touch of Perisic reproduced for Ionut Radu. The goalkeeper, replacing a Samir Handanovic disqualified at the last minute for back pain, completely missed his release, allowing Nicola Sansone to take the opportunity to give Bologna the lead (1-2, 82nd).
This huge dumpling maybe will decide the conclusion of the scudetto, while the smallest detail will pay in cash given the intense long-distance fight between Milan and Inter. Today the Rossoneri have a subtle advantage, but the suspense remains unbearable.
