  • Napoli have won only three out of 12 games against Inter in the Coppa Italia, but the three wins have all come in the most recent four meetings (L1).
  • Balance in the seven Coppa Italia games between Napoli and Inter at home of the Partenopei, with two wins on each side; three draws complete the partial.
  • When Napoli won the first leg away from home in the Coppa Italia semifinal, they always progressed: in 1987 against Cagliari and in 1989 against Pisa.
  • When Inter lost the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final at home, they always have been eliminated: in 1985 against Milan and in 1999 against Parma.

 

 

  • Inter have lost the first leg: the last time the Nerazzurri lost two games in a row in the Coppa Italia was in 2013, a two legged semi-final, against Roma.
  • Inter have won only one of the last seven away games of the Coppa Italia, with six defeats: as many away defeats as in the previous 30.
  • With a goal Dries Mertens would become the best scorer in the Napoli history in all competitions, overtaking Marek Hamsik, currently first with 121 goals.
  • Since he plays for Napoli, José Callejón has scored four goals against Inter in all competitions, but only one at home: only against Verona (five) and Lazio (six) he has scored more.
  • The league game against Napoli was one of six in which both Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez scored this season in all competitions, the only one in 2020.
