Could Bologna’s Win Over Inter Be The Turning Point In The Serie A Title Race

We could look back the race for the Scudetto in a month’s time and say that this week was the pivotal week, the week when things became clear.

Firstly, we had Empoli’s unlikely comeback against Napoli on Sunday afternoon which all but ruled out Luciano Spalletti’s side out of the running.

Napoli were two goals to the good at the Carlo Castellani stadium before the home side hit back with three goals in 10 minutes that epitomised just how fragile Napoli’s mentality is, 

Secondly, the Sunday evening night game between Lazio and Milan produced an absorbing second half.

The league leaders were 1-0 down for large parts of the game, before Olivier Giroud equalised, and then in the dying seconds of the game,

And thirdly, Inter’s long awaited game in hand against Bologna took place at the Stadio Dall’Ara on Wednesday evening. 

Originally due to take place in January, the game was called off due to Covid infections and has always been Inter’s ace up their sleeve for most of the campaign.
