Inter was able to overcome Bologna in a narrow 0-1 win at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Saturday, March 9, 2024.

The Nerazzurri extended their 2024 winning streak with yet another win thanks to a moment of brilliance from Alessandro Bastoni and a thumping header from Yann Bisseck. Simone Inzaghi decided to make several rotations ahead of the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 clash against Atlético Madrid in Spain the following week, without even turning to the services of Federico Dimarco and club captain Lautaro Martínez.

In the process, Carlos Augusto, who started the match, exited at halftime with a slight injury and Marko Arnautović, brought on as a second-half substitute, was unable to complete the match as the forward limped off in the dying minutes with his own injury.

The Brazilian fullback felt something in his calf towards the end of the first half and according to Daniele Mari, suffered a strain in his right thigh. The good news is that it is a minor strain and was removed as a precaution, according to the information of SkySport Italy. As of now, Inter is not particularly concerned, but together with the player did not want to risk anything with matches against Atlético Madrid and Napoli coming up.

Unfortunately, it seems the Austrian forward’s condition is more serious. A few minutes before the end of the match, Arnautović was seen repeatedly feeling his thigh, before falling to the ground in a heap, looking quite distressed- a similar scene compared to his thigh injury suffered earlier this season. The player was helped off the pitch after receiving treatment from Inter’s medical staff, as the Nerazzurri played out the final seconds with ten men. SkySport Italy reported that Marko Arnautović suffered a strain to the flexor in his right thigh and has already predicted that he will be unavailable to face Atlético Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 on Wednesday, March 13.

SkySport Italy notes that both Carlos Augusto and Marko Arnautović will undergo medical examinations later today to determine the extent of their injuries.
