Match Info

When: Tuesday, January 17 3:00 p.m. ET/ 9:00 p.m. CET

Where: San Siro; Milan, Italy.

In the round of sixteen in the TIM Cup, Inter Milan will be playing against Bologna. As Inter are no longer in the Europa League, the Coppa Italia is the only other competition the team will be competing in other than Serie A. Some may not value this competition, but the club should take this competition seriously.

Bologna are coming off a win of their own against Crotone. They will not cede this match without a fight and should be respected, but a team of our stature should go into this match and win it. Inter will hope to keep our good form alive against Bologna and extend the winning streak.

Team News

With the TIM Cup being the only other competition besides the league, look for Pioli to mix it up a little bit. Expect Medel, who has recently returned from being injured, to get some playing time, it he may not start because he has been injured for so long. Other players who have not received much playing time will also get substantial minutes.

Probable Starting XIs

Inter (4-2-3-1): Carrizo; Santon, Murillo, Andreolli, Nagatomo; Brozovic, Gnoukouri; Candreva, Joao Mario, Eder; Palacio.

Bologna (4-3-3): Mirante; Masina, Maietta, Oikonomou, Mbaye; Donsah, Viviani, Dzemaili; Francesco, Destro, Krejci.
