Dismal Inter Milan slump to third defeat in row

Milan: Inter Milan`s dismal run continued with a 3-0 home reverse against Bologna on Friday, their third defeat in a row and second in less than a week against lowly opponents at the San Siro.

Edinson Cavani scored twice to give Napoli a 3-0 win at Fiorentina in Friday`s other Serie A game.

Inter, who have taken one point from their last 15, dominated much of the game but were caught three times on the break by a side who are a lowly 16th in the 20-team table.

Marco Di Vaio netted twice in two minutes just before halftime, the second after a dreadful blunder by Andrea Ranocchia, and Robert Acquafresca made it 3-0 late in the second half.

The match ended with a chorus of `Jose Mourinho`, the coach who led Inter to a Serie A, Champions League and Italian Cup treble two seasons ago, from the Curva Nord`s hardcore fans.
