With their third win in a week, coach Antonio Conte’s team finished second with 21 points from 10 games, two points behind leaders Milan, who face Sampdoria on Sunday..
Inter, who seemed to have recovered from their shaky form in October, won six games and drew three of their last ten games, scoring 26 goals to confirm their ability to seriously compete for the title..
But Conte came out after the match with a statement from Hakimi, in which he believes that the Moroccan star, who spent the last two seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund, “is still adjusting to play in the Italian league”, according to Reuters.
“There are fewer places in our tournament and competing teams are better at identifying your strengths,” he added...“I am happy that this performance increases his self-confidence. He has great abilities “, then Conte made a wonderful promise:” I have to make him one of the best in his position “.
Lukaku opened the scoring with his eighth league goal this season, his 12th in all competitions, in the 16th minute, although it was not a special goal..
The Belgian striker failed to kick the ball well after a cross by Ivan Perisic, but his reaction was quick and he scored on the second attempt..
Inter dominated the match and after Lukaku missed another opportunity after a bad first touch that allowed goalkeeper Okash Skurupski to save it, Hakimi added the second goal in the last minute of the first half..
The Moroccan player, who joined Real Madrid before the start of the season, received a pass from Marcelo Brozovic and quietly placed the ball next to goalkeeper Skorubski..
Inter defended their superiority in the second half and Emanuel Veniato reduced the difference in the 67th minute, but the riot in Bologna did not last long..
Three minutes later, Hakimi hit the net again, after he sprinted to the center of the field, bypassing his marker before hitting with shots in the far corner..
Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic was angry with his team’s performance in the first half.
“I am disappointed, because we always came here to win, but we did nothing in the first half,” he said.
