Juventus & penalties against

Juventus have had more penalties (5) given against them than any other team contesting the 2007/08 Serie A championship. All five have been scored by the Bianconeri's opponents (2 by Cagliari and Napoli, and one by Fiorentina).

Juve: 313 home minutes without conceding

Juventus haven't conceded at home in competitive matches since 16 September 2007 when they lost 1-0 to Udinese. Since Di Natale's 47th-minute goal in that match the Bianconeri have kept a clean sheet for 313 competitive minutes (remaining 43 minutes of Juventus 0-1 Udinese plus the 4-0, 1-0 and 3-0 home wins over Reggina, Genoa and Empoli).

Trezeguet most decisive player

With his hat-trick against Empoli in midweek, David Trezeguet has become the Serie A championship's leading scorer and its most decisive player after ten rounds of matches. The French striker's goals have earned his team 9 points.

Inter's long unbeaten run

Inter have won 12 and drawn 4 since their last Serie A defeat, a 3-1 reverse against Roma on 18 April 2007. Away from home, the Nerazzurri are unbeaten in 25 games. Their last defeat on the road was a 1-0 loss to Empoli on 30 April 2006. Since that date Mancini's team have won 18 and drawn 7 on their Serie A travels.

Ten different Inter scorers in 2007/08

Ten different Inter players have scored goals in the 2007/08 Serie A championship. They are: Adriano, Cambiasso, Cesar, Cordoba, Crespo, Cruz, Figo, Ibrahimovic, Stankovic and Suazo. Roma are the only other team with ten different players on target after ten rounds of matches.

Adriano seeking 100th goal, Cruz & goals against Buffon

After his headed winner against Reggina in Serie A Week 8, Adriano is one away from a century of goals for Italian clubs. The Brazilian striker has scored 74 in Serie A, 6 in Coppa Italia and 19 in European cups (67 for Inter and 32 for Fiorentina/Parma). Adri's first Italian goal came in Inter 2-1 Venezia on 16 September 2001.
Of Adriano's 99 goals, 6 have come in matches against the Bianconeri: 1 in Juventus-Fiorentina (Serie A 2001/02); 1 in Juventus-Parma (Serie A 2002/03); 2 in Juventus-Inter (Coppa Italia 2003/04), 1 in Inter-Juventus (Coppa Italia 2003/04); and 1 in Inter- Juventus (Serie A 2004/05). Adriano has also scored 6 goals in matches against Roma.
Julio Cruz has scored 87 goals for Italian clubs. Five of those have come in matches against Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon. The Argentine striker has also scored five against De Sanctis.

Crespo, Zanetti & November goals

Two Inter players count November as their most prolific month of the year in the Italian championship: Crespo (18 out of 134) and Zanetti (5 out of 11). The Argentine striker has also scored 18 in February and April.

TURIN - Mauro German Camoranesi cancelled out Julio Cruz' opener to ensure Juventus a share of the points in Sunday's derby d'Italia against Inter.

Cruz fired Inter ahead before half time and Mancini's had plenty of chances to increase their lead before Camoranesi came off the bench to hit a deflected equaliser with thirteen minutes left to play.

The draw leaves Inter two points clear of Fiorentina at the top of the table ahead of next Sunday's visit of Lazio - the last league fixture before the November international break.

Inter survived a scare in the 24th minute of a fast and furious first half when Julio Cesar got down well at the near post to parry Del Piero's inswinging left-wing free kick.

Cruz broke the deadlock four minutes before the interval, chesting down a Cesar pass and beating the offside trap before firing past Buffon from just inside the area.

The Nerazzurri could have gone into the break with a two-nil lead but Chiellini made a last-gasp block from Ibrahimovic.

Rocchi disallowed Inter a second for offside on 58 minutes when Cambiasso stole in to prod home after Buffon parried Chivu's free kick.

The Juventus keeper then made two saves in quick succession from Ibrahimovic as the Nerazzurri piled on the pressure.

Ranieri's men searched frantically for a leveller and went close through Trezeguet whose header from Iaquinta's pass forced a tipped save from Julio Cesar.

Mancini threw on Suazo for Cruz and the Honduran had three good chances in as many minutes but was twice denied by Buffon and once by Chiellini.

Juve's reward came in the closing stages when substitute Camoranesi's shot from inside the box took a wicked deflection off Samuel, giving Julio Cesar no chance of making a save.
