Nerazzurri stretch unbeaten run to 22 matches

No Inter penalty since May

Inter are one of seven 2004/05 Serie A teams that still haven't been awarded a penalty (along with Atalanta, Fiorentina, Lecce, Reggina, Sampdoria and Siena). The Nerazzurr'si last penalty (converted by Adriano) was given in the league match away to Lecce on 2 May.

No penalty against Juve since April

Along with Livorno and ChievoVerona, Juventus are one of the three 2004/05 Serie A teams who still haven't had a penalty given against them. The last time a spotkick was awarded to a Bianconeri opponent was last 4 April, when Christian Vieri converted in Inter 3-2 Juventus. Since then, 18 rounds of the Serie A have gone by with no penalty given against Juve.

Adriano: 5 goals against Juve

Burly Brazilian bomber Adriano has scored a total of 61 goals in competitive Italian league matches, with 5 efforts against each of the Serie A's two Bianconeri sides (Juventus and Udinese). Adriano scored once in Juventus v Fiorentina (2001/02 Serie A), once in Juventus v Parma (2002/03 Serie A), twice in Juventus-Inter (2003/04 Coppa Italia) and once in Inter v Juventus (2003/04 Coppa Italia).

Eight different Nerazzurri on target

Julio Cruz v Buffon

Julio Cruz has scored more goals against Gianluigi Buffon than any other Serie A goalkeeper. The Argentine has put 4 of his 43 Italian goals past the Bianconeri keeper.

Buffon, Vieri & Inter

MILAN - Late goals from Christian Vieri and Adriano ensured Inter a point from Sunday evening's pulsating 2-2 draw between Nerazzurri and Bianconeri at the Giuseppe Meazza.

After a goalless first half, Juventus went in front eight minutes into the second period when Zalayeta diverted Nedved's 20-yard shot past Toldo. Ibrahimovic doubled for the visitors on 67 minutes, converting from the penalty spot after Toldo brought down Zalayeta in the box.

Roberto Mancini's reply was to throw on forwards Vieri and Recoba for Dutch duo Davids and van der Meyde for what turned out to be a frenetic final twenty minutes. And it proved to be the turning point as the two subs combined in the 79th minute. Recoba played a wonderful ball wide to Vieri, who volleyed a low, diagonal shot out of Buffon's reach and into the bottom right-hand corner.

Adriano popped up with Inter's equaliser and his seventeeth of the season five minutes from full time, squeezing between Thuram and Zebina on the edge of the six-yard box to fire home Obafemi Martin's right-wing cross.

Inter's are at home again next Saturday evening with the visit of Sicilian outfit Messina in Week 14 of the Serie A championship.
