The last time Cagliari won nine of their first 26 Serie A games in a season was in 2010/11: at the end of the season they placed 14th.

Artur Ionita has played 90 minutes in the last two matchdays: he scored against Inter in his only home game against the Nerazzurri (February 2016).

Mauro Icardi scored his last away goal in September against Empoli: only four of his 16 goals this season have come in away games.

Cagliari have conceded in their last 22 Serie A games: the last time they went on a longer run was in December 1999.

Inter have always won when leading in away Serie A games this season (six).
