Inter unbeaten in 12 at the San Siro

Inter have not lost a competitive fixture at home since a 2-0 league defeat to Siena on 23 September. The Nerazzurri have since put together a sequence of nine wins and three draws. Were Stramaccioni's men to continue their unbeaten run later, they'd still have a long way to go before matching the record 53 home games without defeat between 2008 and 2010.

Rocchi in search of his 100th goal in Serie A

New signing Tommaso Rocchi is just one strike away from his 100th goal in Serie A. The first of his 99 - 17 with Empoli, 82 with Lazio - came on 29 September 2002 in Perugia 1-3 Empoli.

Torino, no wins at Inter since 1988: none home or away since 1994

Torino's last win away to Inter came on 14 February 1988, when they won 1-0 in the league thanks to a Cravero penalty on 12 minutes. Since then the Nerazzurri have won nine and drawn five at the San Siro against today's opponents. In fact, Torino haven't beaten Inter at all since 27 February 1994, when they won 2-0 at home thanks to goals from Poggi and Cois. The Nerazzurri have won 14 and drawn three since then.

No goalless draw for Inter, Toro record breakers

Inter, along with Roma, are one of two sides who are yet to record a 0-0 draw this season. The last time the Nerazzurri recorded a goalless draw was back on 22 April, 26 games ago. Torino, on the other hand, have recorded the most 0-0 stalemates in Serie A this season: four, the same number as Siena.

Torino unbeaten in 5 league games, best run of the season

Torino's last league defeat came on 9 December when they lost 4-2 at home to AC Milan: the Granata have won three and drawn two in Serie A since then, their best run of the season so far.

Visitors: 242 minutes without conceding on the road

The last goal Torino conceded on the road was on 16 December when they drew 1-1 at Genoa, Granqvist finding the net for the Rossoblu on 28 minutes. The 62 remaining minutes of that match, plus the 0-0 at Catania and the 2-0 away victory over Pescara, mean it's now 242 minutes since the Granata conceded away from home.

Ventura looking for 300th win of his career

Giampiero Ventura is just one victory away from his 300th as a coach. His current total of 299 comprises the following: 40 in Serie A, 152 in Serie B, 50 in C-1, 27 in C-2, 18 in the Coppa Italia, 11 in the Coppa Serie C and 1 in the Anglo-Italian Cup. The rest of his 833 professional matches as a coach have seen 274 draws and 260 defeats. Ventura's first success came on 28 August 1985, when his Entella side beat Carrarese 1-0 in the Coppa Serie C. The man from Genoa has coached the following sides during his career: (in chronological order) Entella, Spezia, Centese, Pistoiese, Giarre, Venezia, Lecce, Cagliari, Sampdoria, Udinese, Napoli, Messina, Verona, Pisa, Bari and Torino.

Stramaccioni victorious in previous meeting

Andrea Stramaccioni and Giampiero Ventura meet for the second time today: the Nerazzurri coach won their only previous meeting, 2-0 at Torino on 16 September.
