Serie A round-up: Inter Milan booed by fans after Bologna loss
Last Updated: 03/02/19 11:26pm
Inter Milan players left the field to deafening jeers from their own fans after they lost 1-0 to relegation-threatened Bologna in Serie A on Sunday.
The defeat has piled more pressure on coach Luciano Spalletti, amid speculation the club is preparing to replace him with Antonio Conte.
Federico Santander headed in a corner at the near post in the 33rd minute and that was enough to give Bologna the win in Sinisa Mihajlovic's first match in charge after replacing the fired Filippo Inzaghi on Monday.
Inter did not have a shot on target in the first half and are now without a win in four matches, losing the last three, including the Coppa Italia quarter-final to Lazio on penalties.
The Nerazzurri remained third but have seen their advantage over fourth-placed AC Milan reduced to four points. Bologna moved to within a point of safety after their third win this season.
AC Milan drew 1-1 at Roma in a direct fight for the final Champions League spot with the 23-year-old Krzysztof Piatek on target again for his new side.
Piatek, who joined Milan from Genoa in January, also scored both goals in Milan's Coppa Italia victory over Napoli midweek and was on target again in the 26th minute as he combined with fellow new signing Lucas Paqueta, who stole the ball off Lorenzo Pellegrini before crossing for Piatek.
Roma levelled immediately after half-time. Gianluigi Donnarumma performed yet another brilliant save to prevent team-mate Mateo Musacchio from scoring an own-goal on Rick Karsdorp's cross but Nicolo Zaniolo fired in the rebound.
Pellegrini almost made up for his earlier error nine minutes from time but his header came off the far post. Milan remain in fourth with Roma a point behind.
Free-scoring Fiorentina were halted by a 1-1 draw at struggling Udinese. Fiorentina have scored 13 goals in their last three matches, including a 7-1 win over Roma in the Coppa Italia, but the draw has left them in ninth - three places behind the final Europa League qualifying position.
Torino had defender Nicolas N'Koulou sent off in a 0-0 draw at SPAL to stay level on points with Fiorentina. Sassuolo are a point further back after a 1-1 draw at Genoa.
