MILAN - Inter Milan's Serie A title
defence began with a frustrating 0-0 draw at managerless Bologna
on Monday when scant options on the bench again undermined Rafa
Benitez's new side.
The European champions have decided to stick with the
players who secured an unprecedented Italian treble last term
but the lack of a replacement for sold forward Mario Balotelli
could haunt Inter with just a day left in the transfer window.
Inter's players looked a touch off the pace as they had done
in Friday's European Super Cup defeat by Atletico Madrid
although Wesley Sneijder threatened with three free-kicks.
Samuel Eto'o clipped the bar from substitute Coutinho's
cross but Inter fans will be worried by the start and the lack
of reinforcements for an ageing squad, especially with AC Milan
signing their former hero Zlatan Ibrahimovic and beating Lecce
4-0 in their opener.
