Ranieri unbeaten against Mutti

These two coaches have met 5 times and Mutti has yet to record a win: 2 wins for Ranieri and 3 draws.

Good record for Ranieri against Palermo, his sides always scoring

Ranieri, who played for Palermo for two seasons in 1984/85 and 1985/86, is facing the Sicilian club for the 15th time as a coach. The current Nerazzurri manager has won 9, drawn 2 and lost 3 of the previous 14 games. Ranieri's sides scored in all 14 previous meetings, racking up 34 goals in total.

Mutti v Inter: one win for the coach

Mutti has faced Inter 7 times as a coach, with 1 win (Messina 2-1 Inter, 24 April 2005), 6 defeats and 0 draws. Inter scored in all seven of those games, hitting the net 18 times in total. Mutti lost all 3 competitive matches played at the Meazza.

Milito's strike rate against Palermo

Diego Alberto Milito has scored more goals in competitive fixtures against Palermo than against any other team since he arrived Italy: 7 of his 107 strikes have come against the Sicilian outfit.

Inter's prolific bench

Inter, along with ChievoVerona, AC Milan and Novara, currently hold the record for most goals scored through substitutes in Serie A: 2011/12. 5 goals have been scored by Nerazzurri coming off the bench: Milito (2), Cambiasso, Castagnois and Faraoni (1 apiece).

Match-up between the sides with fewest draws in Serie A 2011/12

Inter have drawn fewer league games this season than any other club: just 2. Palermo have had the second fewest draws: 3 (the same number as Cesena and Genoa).

Palermo still seeking first win on the road

Palermo haven't won an away match since 15 May, when they beat Sampdoria 1-2 in a league fixture. In the 11 games played away since then, the Rosanero have had 4 draws and 7 defeats. Palermo are therefore one of three teams yet to have won a match on the road in the 2011/12 season (the other two are Novara and Siena): in 10 league matches away from the Stadio Barbera (in 9 of which they have failed to even score), they have scraped together 3 draws and 7 defeats.

Migliaccio set to become Palermo's 3rd highest appearance holder

With 146 appearances in Serie A wearing the Rosanero shirt, Giulio Migliaccio is in 4th place in the club's history for number of appearances in the top flight. If he plays tonight, he will equal Di Maso on 147. Cassani holds the record with 161 appearances, while Giaroli has 151.
