Inter earned its first Serie A win of the season on Saturday, beating 10-man Bologna 3-1 in Claudio Ranieri’s first match as coach. Ranieri was hired last week to replace Gian Piero Gasperini, who was fired after a 3-1 loss to newly promoted Novara.

CSKA, which secured a 2-2 draw at Lille in its Group B opener, beat Volga 3-1 Saturday and remains second in the league, two points behind leader Zenit St. Petersburg.

In the other Group B match, Lille will be at Trabzonspor.
