Inter moved to within two points off the top of the Serie A table with a comfortable 3-1 win over Bologna on Saturday.

Fresh off the back of an impressive victory over Borussia Moenchengladbach in the Champions League, Antonio Conte’s side once again shined with individual performances from back to front.

✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE

Marcelo Brozovic: 7.6

Fresh off the back of an assist in Inter’s 3-2 victory over Gladbach, Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic was once again on hand to set up a goal for his side’s victory over Bologna.

The 28-year-old midfielder provided an excellent chipped ball to play Achraf Hakimi through for the first of his two goals in a game that saw the Croatian pull strings and constantly threaten from distance for Conte’s side.

BAD PERFORMANCE

Aaron Hickey: 5.8

Bologna have earned plenty of International headlines with the capture of young defender Aaron Hickey but Saturday’s clash with Inter suggested the Scottish defender still had plenty to learn in the Italian top flight.

While Hickey looked good going forward, the young defender had at least one major error that led to a chance for Inter and lost possession four times over the course of the game. By no means a dreadful performance, but certainly plenty of room to improve from.

STAR MAN

Achraf Hakimi: 9

Prior to Saturday’s clash Achraf Hakimi had scored just one goal in 13 games this season, yet the Morocan International undoubtedly had his best game of the season against Bologna.

His first goal came in the dying moments of the first half when a wonderfully lofted pass from Brozovic was met by a brilliant shot into the bottom left corner of the net.

The 22-year-old attacker pounced once again in the second half just three minutes after Bologna had pulled it back to 2-1, when the winger set off on a solo run and smashed it into the back of the net from just outside the box.

A truly outstanding goal to cap off a fantastic overall performance.
