Football: Inter old boys on show
Saturday 06 November 1999
Bologna are not one of Serie A's bigger clubs, but they have conceded only six goals this term. Nicola Ventola, Bologna's striker, and Gianluca Pagliuca, their goalkeeper, will want to shine. Ventola was sold to Bologna by Inter in the summer after they recruited Christian Vieri, while Pagliuca was replaced at Inter by Angelo Peruzzi.
Inter led Serie A early in the season but, while Vieri, Ivan Zamorano, and Ronaldo have been firing, midfielders Paulo Sousa and Luigi Di Biagio are yet to fill the gap left by the departures of Youri Djorkaeff and Diego Simeone. Vieri is doubtful with a foot injury, while playmaker Giancarlo Marocchi returns from injury for Bologna.
