Inter have alternated between a win and a defeat in their last nine league games against Genoa: with a 1-0 win for the Nerazzurri in the most recent clash.

Inter have lost four of their last eight Serie A meetings against Genoa (W4), this after they were unbeaten in the previous 14 games (W9 D5).

Genoa have won each of their last four Serie A matches against Inter at the Ferraris: this is their longest winning streak against the Nerazzurri in the competition.

Genoa have picked up eight points in home games in Serie A this season, more than only Verona and Benevento (seven each) – nevertheless, the Rossoblu have won two of their last three league matches at the Ferraris (L1).

On the other hand, Inter have drawn three of their last four away league games (L1) – the last time the Nerazzurri went five Serie A away games without a win was back in December 2016.

Since Davide Ballardini's appointment as manager, Genoa have collected 21 points: only Juventus and Napoli (31) have picked up more in this period.

Four of Genoa’s last five goals in Serie A have been scored from the 80th minute or later.

Diego Laxalt has scored the winning goal in each of his last two Serie A games (both at minute 90).
