New coach Claudio Ranieri will be looking to lead the San Siro giant to its first win of the Serie A season on Saturday.

Bologna coach Pierpaolo Bisoli will be without a plethora of players for Saturday's clash with Inter. Starting goalkeeper Jean-Francois Gillet picked up an injury in the midweek draw with Juventus and will be replaced by Federico Agliardi. Andrea Raggi, Simone Loria, Nicolo Cherubin, Saphir Taider, Alessandro Diamanti and Gaston Gimenez will also miss the match due to various ailments.

Inter (4-3-1-2): Julio Cesar; Nagatomo, Lucio, Samuel, Chivu; Zanetti, Cambiasso, Obi; Sneijder; Forlan, Pazzini

Claudio Ranieri will make his coaching debut for Inter on Saturday and will move Wesley Sneijder back into his natural position in the hole behind the two strikers. Ivan Cordoba, Emiliano Viviano and Maicon are out with knee injuries while Thiago Motta is still nursing a sore hamstring. Andrea Poli and Dejan Stankovic have been ruled out of the encounter as well.
