Ranieri makes Inter debut at Bologna

New Inter Milan manager Claudio Ranieri will make his debut with the club on Saturday at Bologna as he attempts to turn around a poor start to the season for Nerazzurri.

Gian Piero Gasperini was fired this past week after Inter claimed just one point from three Serie A matches while also losing at home to Trabzonspor to open its Champions League campaign.

Ranieri will be the fifth coach in the last 15 months for Inter, and he is inheriting a side with plenty of injury issues ahead of Saturday's match.

Ivan Cordoba, Maicon, Thiago Motta, Andrea Poli, Dejan Stankovic and Emiliano Viviano are all out through injury, while defender Andrea Ranocchia begins serving a three-match suspension.

Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder is also being rested ahead of the club's midweek Champions League clash at CSKA Moscow.

Bologna lost its first two games to open the league season before claiming a 1-1 draw at Juventus in midweek.

The result was impressive considering Juve won its first two games, but Bologna boss Pier Paolo Bisoli is expecting another tough test despite Inter's poor start.

Defending champions AC Milan have also started slowly with only two points from three games and the Rossoneri will host Cesena, while Napoli aims to bounce back from its first loss of the season against Chievo when the club hosts Fiorentina.

On Sunday, Udinese hosts Cagliari with both sides having already claimed two wins in three games, Genoa sits tied atop the league table and visits Chievo and Novara tries to follow up its 3-1 win over Inter Milan with three more points at Atalanta.

Juventus visits Catania with both teams bringing unbeaten records into Sunday's match, Palermo travels to Lazio, Siena searches for its first win of the season against Lecce and Roma hits the road to face Parma with the two teams combining for one win in six games.
