Ranieri and Inter: winless at home, but unbeaten as an ex

For the 16th time in a competitive match, Claudio Ranieri, as a coach, is facing Juventus; a club he guided from July 2007 to May 2009. His record against the "Vecchia Signora" is 2 wins, 4 draws and 9 defeats. In the 7 competitive matches played at home Ranieri's teams have never won: 2 draws and 5 defeats. But since he left Juventus, in May 2009, Ranieri is unbeaten against the Bianconeri, with 2 wins and 1 draw in the three meetings; all of which took place when he was coach of Roma and were played in Torino.

Inter and Conte: draw in last competitive match, his last as a player

This will be Inter's 2nd competitive match against Conte as a coach. The previous one ended 1-1 in Milan against his Atalanta in the 2009/10 Serie A season. Inter was Antonio Conte's final opponent in his playing career; on 4 April 2004 at the San Siro in the Serie A, the Nerazzurri defeated Juventus 3-2 with Conte on the pitch. He saw 18 minutes of playing time in the game, having come on for Camoranesi in the 72nd minute.

Inter with clean sheet at home against Bianconeri in Serie A for 297 minutes

The last goal that Juventus scored against Inter at the San Siro in the Serie A came on 22 March 2008 when the Bianconeri won 2-1. The scorer of the second goal was Trezeguet in the 63rd minute. From that moment, counting the 27 remaining minutes of that mach, plus the entire games from the 2008/09 season (1-0 win for Inter), 2009/10 (2-0 win for Inter) and 2010/11 (0-0), for a total of a 297-minute dry spell for Juventus.

100 for Thiago Motta

Thiago Motta, should he take to the pitch, will celebrate his 100th competitive match wearing the shirt of an Italian club. His current 99 appearances - gathered with Genoa and Inter - are divided as such: 73 in Serie A, 8 in the Coppa Italia, 14 in European competition and 4 in other competitions. His official debut came on 19 October 2008 in Genoa 1-0 Siena, in the Serie A.

Ranieri seeks his 200th win as a coach in Italian competitions

Claudio Ranieri is on the verge of his 200th victory in Italian competitions, in which he has guided Campania, Cagliari, Napoli, Fiorentina, Parma, Juventus, Roma and Inter. The wins are as follows: 145 in Serie A, 34 in Serie B, 20 in Serie C1, for a total of 467 appearances with 158 draws and 110 defeats. His first win goes back to 4 October 1987 in Campania 1-0 Cagliari.

Penalties in Serie A 2011/12: Inter most penalised, Juve still without any against

Inter is the most penalised team in the Serie A this 2011/12 season in regards to penalties suffered; 5 in the first 8 matches, of which 3 were successfully converted. Inter have already had as many penalties given against them as they did in the entire 2010/11 season. Juventus is one of 5 teams - along with Roma, Milan, Fiorentina and Siena - that has not had a penalty given against them in the Serie A this season.

Attack at home still anemic and defence away still a bunker

Inter have scored only one goal at home (like Chievo), and Juventus have let in only one goal away. Thus the San Siro prepares to see one of the most toothless home attacks take on one of the strongest away defences this 2011/12 Serie A season.

Juventus with only one loss in last 18 league matches

Juventus have lost only one of their last 18 competitive matches between this and last season. It happened last 15 May when they were defeated 1-0 away to Parma. In the other 17 matches the Bianconeri's record is 8 wins and 9 draws.

Pirlo: 400 matches in Italian competitions

Should Andrea Pirlo take to the pitch, he will celebrate the 400th league appearance of his career. His current 399 appearances - collected with Brescia, Inter, Reggina, Milan and Juventus - are divided as such: 382 in Serie A and 17 in Serie B. His professional debut came on 21 May 1995 in Reggiana 2-0 Brescia.
