Inter unbeaten and always on target in last 16 games at the Meazza

Inter haven't lost at home in a competitive fixture since 23 September last year, when Siena triumphed 0-2 in Serie A. The 16 matches played since then have yielded 11 wins and five draws. Stramaccioni's men have hit the net in all 16 games: 31 strikes in total. There's still have some way to go before they can equal the club record of 53 home games without defeat, established between 2008 and 2010.

Kuz in line for 100th in Italy

Should he feature tonight, Zdravko Kuzmanovic will celebrate his 100th appearance in a competitive game in Italy. His 99 to date – with Fiorentina and Inter – are divided as follows: 75 in Serie A, three in the Coppa Italia and 21 in European competitions. He made his debut in Italy on 4 March 2007 in Fiorentina 5-1 Torino (Serie A).

Bologna: best attack in new year and 2nd half of season

Bologna have the best attack in Serie A in 2013, both considering the eight games in the second half of the campaign and since the start of the calendar year (which includes the last game of the first half of the season). In both cases Pioli's men have totalled 17 goals.

No clean sheets for Bologna in 16 away trips

Bologna have conceded at least once in each of their last 16 away fixtures, shipping a total of 25 goals. Their last clean sheet on the road dates back to 2 May 2012, a 1-0 victory at Catania.

Stramaccioni's 100% record against Pioli

Andrea Stramaccioni has won both of his previous meetings with Stefano Pioli, both coming this season between Inter and Bologna. Stramaccioni's men beat Bologna 3-1 away in Serie A and 3-2 after extra time at home in the Coppa Italia in January.

Stramaccioni ok against Bologna

Stramaccioni's head-to-heads with Bologna are exactly the same as his match-ups with Pioli: two wins from two games.

No draws when Pioli faces Inter

Stefano Pioli is facing Inter for the seventh time in a competitive game in his coaching career and there has yet to be a draw. The current Bologna coach has two victories to his name while the Nerazzurri have triumphed on four occasions.

Cassano set for 400th game in Italy

Antonio Cassano will reach the 400-game milestone in his professional career in Italy if he plays against Bologna. Of the 399 appearances he has made before now (with Bari, Roma, Sampdoria, AC Milan and Inter), 318 have come in Serie A, 31 in the Coppa Italia and 50 in European competitions. Cassano made his professional debut for Bari on 11 December 1999 in Lecce 1-0 Bari (Serie A).
