Napoli’s José Callejón hasn’t scored in each of his last 15 Serie A games, his longest such drought since December 2018 - he interrupted that streak in his first game played in the new year; indeed, only against Lazio (six) he has scored more goals than he has against Inter (four) in Serie A.

Inter are, alongside Genoa, one of the two sides against whom Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik has played more than three Serie A games without scoring a single goal (four matches).

Napoli have won only one of their last five Serie A games against sides top of the table at the begin of a matchday (D1 L3).

Inter’s Antonio Conte is looking to record his 100th Serie A win as manager in what is his 145th match; he would become the fastest manager to reach this milestone among the coaches who made their debut in Serie A from 1994-95 onwards.

Inter striker Romelu Lukaku has scored more goals in his opening eight Serie A away games (eight) than any other player in the three points for a win era.

Inter have lost only one of their last 13 away games in Serie A (W10 D2), although this was a 1-4 defeat against Napoli in their last away game played last term.
