Perugia and red cards

With 8 red cards in 28 matches, Perugia are the most undisciplined side contesting the 2003/04 Serie A championship. The Griffins sent-off so far this season are Diamoutene (twice), Di Loreto, Grosso, Ignoffo, Nastos, Hubner and Vryzas

Perugia's poor run of form

In the second half of the season Perugia have let in 17 goals in 11 matches, with a least one conceded per game. The Griffins' last match without conceding a goal was the 0-0 draw away to Ancona on 18 January.

Perugia and penalties

Perugia are one of the four Serie A sides that have had the highest number of penalties awarded in their favour this season (together with Juventus, Parma and Roma). The Griffins' record of penalties awarded in one top-flight season is 10 in 2000/01.

Vieri prolific against Umbrians

Christian Vieri has scored more goals against Perugia than any other team, with 12 goals in matches against the Umbrians: one in Lazio v Perugia (1998/99 Serie A), one in Inter v Perugia (1999/00 Serie A), one in Inter v Perugia and three in Perugia v Inter (2000/01 Serie A), two in Inter v Perugia and one in Perugia v Inter (2001/02 Serie A), one in Perugia v Inter (2002/03 Serie A) and two in Inter v Perugia (2003/04 Serie A).

Inter consistently on target in away matches in 2nd half of season

The Nerazzurri have scored 10 goals in their 6 away matches in the second half of the Serie A season, with at least one goal per game. The last time they failed to score on the road was in the 1-0 defeat at Parma on 10 January.

Zaccheroni's spring form

In spring, teams coached by Zaccheroni do well. And Inter's recent run of form proves this fact. The coach from Emilia Romagna has a points per game average of 1.68 in the month of April and 1.64 in May. If Inter continue this average until the end of the season they will finish the championship on 56 points.
