Goals likely

Inter have found the net with 14 different players in the Serie A this season, while 13 of Prandelli's Gialloblu have scored during the 2002/03 campaign. Saturday's opponents trail Juventus, who have hit the target with 15 different men.

No home victory for Inter for almost two months

The Nerazzurri's last Serie A win at home was the resounding 4-0 victory over Como on 16 March. Since then, Cuper's troops have drawn against both sides from Rome and lost the 243rd 'derby della Madonnina'. The last time Inter went 4 or more games without a win was from March to May 1992. In detail, the Nerazzurri recorded goalless draws with Cagliari, Torino, Parma and Atalanta, a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Juventus and a 2-0 loss to Cremonese.

Vieri on course to become Serie A top scorer

He's currently out through injury, but Christian Vieri is highly likely to be top scorer for the 2002/03 Serie A season. With three matches of the domestic campaign remaining, Vieri enjoys an eight-goal advantage over Pippo Inzaghi and Alessandro Del Piero. Aldo Serena was the last Nerazzurri player to be Serie A top scorer, with 22 goals to his credit in the 1988/89 season. The other Inter players to have won the title are Meazza (in 1929/30, 1935/36 and 1937/38), Myers (in 1948/49), Angelillo (in 1958/59), Mazzola (together with Fiorentina player Orlando in 1964/65), Boninsegna (in 1970/71 and 1971/72).

Inter more prolific in second halves of matches

Inter have scored 59 goals in the Serie A this season, with 38 coming in the second halves of matches. Cuper's side have scored more than any other top flight club from the 1st to 15th minutes of matches (12 goals, together with Juventus), from the 46th to 60th minutes (10 goals, together with Udinese) and from the 61st to 75th minutes (13 goals).

Parma 6 goals away from club record

Thanks to the contribution of Parma strike partners Adriano and Mutu, who have notched a record tally of 29 goals, the Emilians are 6 goals away from equalling their season record of 55 goals (set in 1997/98 and 1998/99).
