WE'VE sealed another stellar signing for the new campaign with Serie A don Paolo Bandini bringing his expertise to the site thanks to our partner Unibet.

Paolo is an Anglo-Italian sportswriter who pens a superb weekly Serie A column for the Guardian and his other credits include ESPN, the BBC and TalkSport as well as making regular appearances on the Football Weekly podcast.

He's a Trevi Fountain of knowledge and we're delighted to have him on board. He has a preview of tonight's match at Bologna and will preview tomorrow's games too.

Bologna v Inter (7.45pm)

Inter fans know better than to get carried away. Their team has won four out of four and has a chance to pull clear at the top of the table tonight – for 24 hours at least – since Juventus and Napoli do not play until the following evening. But the Nerazzurri have been here before. They were top on Christmas Day in 2015 but finished the season outside the Champions League places.

Luciano Spalletti has been working to keep his team on an even keel but also to identify his best XI. In particular, the No.10 role in Inter’s 4-2-3-1 remains wide open having been rotated so far this season between Joao Mario, Borja Valero and Marcelo Brozovic.

The manager suggested at his press conference on Monday that Eder, Antonio Candreva and Ivan Perisic could get a run in that role yet. With no major injuries or suspensions to contend with he does have the luxury of choice.

Bologna’s only win came against newly-promoted Benevento, while the two sides that they have lost to – Fiorentina and Napoli – boast bigger budgets and bigger ambitions.

Inter too would fall into that latter camp and seem to hold something of a hex over these opponents in any case. Their last 12 visits to Bologna have yielded 10 wins and two draws.

Paolo's Tips

  • Correct Score: Bologna 0 Inter 2 (7-1, Unibet)
  • First scorer: Mauro Icardi (2-1, Unibet)
  • Safe bet: Under 2.5 goals (11-10, Unibet)
