Inter have won their last three Serie A games against Chievo with an aggregate score of 10-2, including 5-0 in the reverse fixture last season.

Chievo have gained only one point in the last 13 Serie A games against teams from Lombardia: 1-1 against Atalanta in September 2017.

Four of Chievo's five wins against Inter in the Italian top-flight have come at the Bentegodi - the last one in August 2016.

With Domenico Di Carlo on the bench, Chievo are still unbeaten in Serie A this season: four draws in a row, with only two goals conceded.

In the last six matchdays, Inter have never repeated the same result twice (winning in their last game against Udinese).

Chievo are one of only two teams in Serie A 2018/19 (alongside Genoa) yet to find the net with substitute.

Inter's Ivan Perisic has scored five goals in his last three A games against Chievo.

Inter striker Mauro Icardi has scored five goals in his last six Serie A games against Chievo, finding the net with nine of his last 11 shots on target in the league.

Domenico Di Carlo has never won against Inter in 12 previous Serie A games: eight losses and four draws.

VERONA - Inter were held to a frustrating draw on Saturday evening, who despite controlling large parts of the game, were pegged back late on after Pellissier’s goal cancelled out Perisic’s opener. This 1-1 draw on matchday 17 now leaves Luciano Spalletti’s side in third place on 33 points.

The match started in vibrant fashion, with Handanovic called into action after just 30 seconds to keep out Meggiorini. Inter then responded through Perisic, although the Croatian’s third-minute shot flew over. The next 20 minutes were fairly balanced, yet with Inter controlling the majority of possession. The 28th minute saw a great chance for the Nerazzurri, with Icardi denied by a strong save from Sorrentino before Nainggolan then shot over. Six minutes later Politano tried his luck, cutting in from the right-hand side and firing an ambitious effort wide. However, Inter’s patience finally paid dividends in the 39th minute as a well-worked move saw Perisic score from close-range after a perfect cross from D’Ambrosio. After the Croatian’s third goal of the season, the Nerazzurri kept pushing for a second, with Joao Mario missing a late chance at the back post after a good cross from Perisic.

Spalletti’s side started the second half with their foot on the gas. In the 47th minute, a break featuring Perisic and Joao Mario ended with Bani closing down the Croatian just as he was about to shoot. 10 minutes later, Sorrentino made a great stop from Icardi after he linked up with the lively Perisic. Soon after, Chievo suddenly got up the pitch in the 58th minute with Giaccherini sliding it through for Pellissier who forced a brilliant save from Handanovic at the expense of a corner. The hosts started to take heart and Spalletti responded by bringing Vecino and Lautaro Martinez on for Nainggolan and Politano. In the 77th minute, Inter went on the attack again through Perisic once again who shot wide after cutting inside onto his right despite the attentions of Depaoli. At the end, Borja Valero replaced Joao Mario. The referee signalled four minutes of stoppage time and it would prove fatal for the Nerazzurri. A long ball from the back was nodded on by the substitute Stepinski to Pellissier who got in between De Vrij and Skriniar to dink the ball over the oncoming Handanovic. The match ended on a sour note with a 1-1 scoreline.

The Nerazzurri return to action on Boxing Day with kick-off at 20:30 CET when Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli visit San Siro
