Leonardo vs Bari

Leonardo's previous games against Bari are the same as those between Leonardo and Ventura: the two matches played last season between Bari and Leonardo's AC Milan side. The Brazilian had 1 win and 1 draw, with no goals conceded.

Ventura has never beaten Inter and his sides have always conceded

Giampiero Ventura is facing Inter for the 8th time as a coach, and he has yet to beat the Nerazzurri: 3 draws and 4 defeats. Inter have netted in all 7 of those matches, scoring 20 goals in total.

Leonardo unbeaten against Ventura

This is the third time the two coaches have met in competitive fixtures, with Ventura yet to win: 1 draw and 1 win for Leonardo

Bari on five-match losing streak

Bari have lost their last five games: Bologna (0-2 at home in Serie A), Juventus (2-1 away, Serie A), AC Milan (3-0 away in Coppa Italia), Napoli (0-2 at home, Serie A) and Cagliari (2-1 away, Serie A). The last time Bari picked up points was when they won 0-1 away at Lecce on 6 January. Should they lose again today, it would be their worst run since they lost 6 Serie A matches on the trot between October and December 1995.

Bari's penalties

Bari have been awarded more penalties in Serie A 2010/11 than any other team: 6 in 22 games, with 3 scored and 3 missed. Bari have also given away 6 penalties, making it 12 spot-kicks in games involving Ventura's side - more than any other team in Serie A 2010/11.

Stadio San Nicola is no fortress: no goals in 216 minutes; no wins in 8; no clean sheets in 11

Bari haven't scored a goal at home for 216 minutes: their last goal was the penalty scored by Andrea Masiello after 54 minutes in Bari 1-1 Palermo on 19 December. Since then, they have failed to score in the remaining 36 minutes of that game and the two 0-2 defeats by Bologna and Napoli. Bari have failed to win a home game in Serie A since 26 September, when they beat Brescia 2-1. Since then they have drawn 2 and lost 6. Bari have also conceded at least one goal in each of their last 11 competitive fixtures at the Stadio San Nicola - 17 goals in all. The last time they kept a clean sheet at home was on 19 September 2010, when they played out 0-0 draw with Cagliari.

Goals from all over the pitch for Ventura's and Leonardo's teams

Bari and Inter are two of seven teams in Serie A 2010/11 to have scored with 10 different players, as well as Juventus, AC Milan, Palermo, Roma and Udinese. Bari's 10 scorers are: Barreto, Caputo, Castillo, Donati, Kutuzov, Masiello A., Okaka, Parisi, Rivas and Rudolf. The 10 Nerazzurri to get their names on the score sheet this season are: Cambiasso, Chivu, Eto’o, Lucio, Milito, Muntari, Pandev, Pazzini, Stankovic and Thiago Motta.

Pazzini two away from his 100th career goal at club level

Giampaolo Pazzini needs two more goals to make it 100 scored in competitive fixtures at club level. He scored his first goal on 14 September 2003 in the 82nd minute of Atalanta-AlbinoLeffe 2-1 (Serie B). Of his 98 goals - scored while playing for Atalanta, Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Inter - 66 have come in Serie A, 9 in Serie B, 18 in Coppa Italia and 5 in European competitions.

Inter turn it on in the second half

Inter have have won more points in the second half than any other team in Serie A 2010/11: the Nerazzurri have 10 points more at the final whistle compared to their half-time scorelines.

Inter's goals from the bench

Inter are one of 4 teams in Serie A 2010/11 (along with AC Milan, Juventus and Roma) to have scored 5 times through players coming off the bench. Those 5 goals have come from Pazzini (2), Milito, Muntari and Thiago Motta.
