De Canio on a milestone

Tonight's match against Inter marks the 600th competitive fixture of Lecce boss Luigi De Canio's coaching career. His 599 games are subdivided as follows: 482 in professional leagues (162 in Serie A, 196 in Serie B, 68 in Serie C1 and 56 in Serie C2) and 117 in the national amateur championship. De Canio has won 218 games (173 in professional leagues and 45 in amateur championship), drawn 195 (156 & 39) and lost 186 (153 & 33).

Lecce at the Via del Mare: one defeat in last eleven

The Giallorossi have lost just one of their last 11 home games: a 2-1 Serie B defeat to Cesena on 14 May 2010. In the other 10 matches they have notched 7 wins and 3 draws. Lecce have scored in 12 of their last 13 games, for a total of 18 goals.

Lecce goalless in last two games

De Canio's team have not scored in Serie A since Di Michele's effort in the 61st minute of their 2-1 victory over Brescia on 24 October. In their successive games, Lecce have lost 2-0 to Roma and Bologna.

With just 14 yellow cards in 10 games, Inter is disciplined team in the 2010/11 Serie A championship so far.

Inter chasing a trio of away wins

Inter have not won three consecutive Serie A away games since their 5-0, 2-0 and 3-1 victories over Genoa, Livorno and Bologna in October-November 2009. The Nerazzurri travel to Lecce after 1-0 away wins at Cagliari and Genoa.
