Inter Milan players left the field to deafening jeers from their own fans after the latest setback on Sunday.

Inter lost 1-0 at home to relegation-threatened Bologna in Serie A to pile more pressure on coach Luciano Spalletti, amid speculation the club is preparing to replace him with Antonio Conte.

Federico Santander headed in a corner at the near post in the 33rd minute and that was enough to give Bologna the win in Sinisa Mihajlovic’s first match in charge after replacing the fired Filippo Inzaghi on Monday.

Inter didn’t even have a shot on target in the first half and was jeered off the pitch at the break as well as throughout the second half and at the final whistle. It also had goalkeeper Samir Handanovic to thank for keeping the score down.

Inter is now without a win in four matches and has lost its last three, including the Italian Cup quarterfinal to Lazio on penalties.

The Nerazzurri remained third but have seen their advantage over fourth-placed AC Milan reduced to five points. Its city rival visits Roma later Sunday in a direct fight for the final Champions League spot.

Bologna moved to within a point of safety after only its third win this season.

OTHER MATCHES

Freescoring Fiorentina was halted by a 1-1 draw at struggling Udinese.

Fiorentina has scored 13 goals in its last three matches, including a 7-1 win over Roma in the Italian Cup midweek, but the draw left it ninth — three places behind the final Europa League qualifying position.

Torino had defender Nicolas N’Koulou sent off in a 0-0 draw at Spal and remained level on points with Fiorentina.

Sassuolo was a point further back after a 1-1 draw at Genoa.
