Record-breaking season for Bianconeri

Juve are on 26 points after 10 matches of the current campaign. That's a record since the 'three points for a win' era (from 1994/95 on). If the Bianconeri win against Inter, they will beat Roma's record of 28 points from 11 Serie games set in 2000/01.

Juve on target at home for 34 home matches in a row

The Bianconeri have scored at least one goal for 34 consecutive championship matches played at the Delle Alpi. The last time they failed to score in front of their own fans was the 0-0 draw with Inter on 27 October 2001. Juventus have scored 80 goals in these 34 matches.

At least one goal for Juve in last 13 matches

The last time Lippi's men didn't score in a Serie A match was the 0- 0 draw away to Lazio on 3 May 2003. Since then, they have scored in 13 consecutive matches for a total of 32 goals.

Juventus and fair play

Along with Bologna and Sampdoria, Juventus have still not had a player sent off in the 2003/04 Serie A season.

Match-winning subs

Of Juventus' 25 goals in the championship so far this term, 6 have been scored by substitutes. Di Vaio has scored 5 after coming on (1 against Empoli, 2 against Roma and 2 against Udinese), with Miccoli the other super Bianconeri super sub (1 against Udinese).

Juventus and penalty kicks

After 10 weeks of the championship, Juventus have seen 4 penalties given against them, as many as in the whole of last season. Juve's record of penalties given against in one championship is 9 in 1973/74. But Juve are one of the four sides that have been awarded the most spot kicks this season: 3 like Siena, Brescia and Udinese.

No Inter victory in last 11 matches against Juve

The Nerazzurri haven't won a competitive 'derby d'Italia' since 4 January 1998, when Djorkaeff's goal was decisive. Since then there have been 11 matches between the two sides, with 5 draws and 6 defeats for Inter.

Still no Serie A goals conceded under Zac

Inter's Serie A invincibility is now 401 minutes long. The last goal let in by the Nerazzurri in the domestic championship was Caracciolo's 49th-minute effort for Brescia in October's 2-2 draw. Since Zaccheroni took over as head coach, no team has managed to score against Inter in the Italian league.

Nerazzurri sprint finishes

Inter have scored 17 goals in the championship so far this season, with 10 of those coming in the last half-hours of matches: 5 from 61' to 75' and 5 from 76' to 90' (including additional time). Expressed as a percentage, Inter have scored 58.8% of their goals in the last 30 minutes of matches.

Lamouchi's day?

Sabri Lamouchi has scored 9 goals in competitive matches for Italian clubs, with 2 of those coming against Juventus and Buffon. While at Parma, the French midfielder put a goal past the Bianconeri in both Serie A matches in the 2001/02 season.

TURIN - A 6-0 victory followed by a 5-1 defeat and a 3-1 win. There's nothing boring about Nerazzurri matches these days...

Inter dominated at the Delle Alpi on Saturday to record a famous victory over their 'Italy derby' rivals Juventus - the first championship win away to the Bianconeri since 21 March 1993 - and close the gap at the top of the Serie A to four points.

The undisputed man of the match was Julio Cruz, who twice beat Buffon then set up Martins for Inter's third before being substituted by Alvaro Recoba.

The opening goal came on 12 minutes after Obagol was brought down by Paolo Montero just outside the box. Cruz stepped up to take the free kick and found the top-right hand corner with a spectactular curled shot.

The Argentine striker redoubled 24 minutes after the restart, slamming the ball into the far corner after his first effort was parried, then 5 minutes later set up Obafemi Martins for the killer blow. The Nigerian raced on to his strike partner's headed pass forward, danced past Legrottaglie then slotted through Buffon's legs to send the black and blue section of the crowd into wild celebrations.

Juventus grabbed a consolation when Montero's last-gasp header found the back of the net via Recoba's arm. Too little too late to prevent the Bianconeri from crashing to their first Serie A defeat of the season.
