Bologna did a favor for leaders Napoli by losing 1-0 to their second guest Inter on Sunday in the 24th stage of the Italian Football League.
And with less of a blow than last season when he lost 2-1 at the same stadium in April in a delayed match that ultimately opened the door for his neighbor Milan to win the title by two points, Bologna resumed her victory over Inter at the Renato del Ara Stadium with a goal scored by Riccardo Orsolini in the 76th minute.
The victory allowed Napoli, who beat Empoli 2-0 on Saturday, to maintain the 18-point difference that separates them from Inter and take another step towards their first title since 1990 at the start of the season. .
Inter’s seventh loss this season has raised the heat for the remaining three spots in contention for next season’s Champions League as the Nerazzori lead Roma and neighboring Milan by just 3 points, defending champions, and 5 ahead. Lazio.
Milan and Rome will be the same distance from Inter if the former wins at home against Atalanta on Sunday night and the latter against their host Cremonese on Tuesday, while Lazio will be two points clear of the Nerazzori if they win on Monday over Sampdoria.
