Andrea Ranocchia opened the scoring in the Nerazzurri’s victory this afternoon against Bologna at the Stadio Dall’Ara. Alongside Roberto Scarpini at the end of the match, the Inter defender smiled when thinking about just how many times he’d come close to scoring this season without putting the ball in the net: "It seemed like a curse. None of my headers were making it in. But today things finally went well for me. I’m very pleased with the three points because they were important and very difficult to earn. We knew it would be tough. Today we ran like mad and the forwards gave us a big hand. We were excellent and we have to continue like this. We played a great match and now we need to focus on the midweek game. Can carrying a booking into the Sampdoria match cause me problems ahead of Juventus? Of course it’s great playing in games like the one against the Bianconeri, but I don’t think about it. I’ll try not to get booked, just as I did today. But should I get one, then that’s just how it goes."
Finally, regarding the work in training on dead-ball situations, Ranocchia explained that "it’s not so much that we only have a few hours to try it on the pitch. We go over everything at the team meeting and when we’re at the hotel. And then everything’s a lot easier when you have team-mates like Cambiasso sending in fantastic balls. Was that a penalty against me in the first half? I’m the one who took the knock there. In fact, my calf is swollen. I don’t know how obvious it was…"
