Genoa have not scored in their last two league games, last going three Serie A games without a goal in March 2019 under Cesare Prandelli.


Including the game played at the beginning of August, Genoa have won their last two Serie A home games (7-1 overall) – the last time they reached three consecutive Serie A home wins was in September 2018.


Inter are the team with the most touches in the opponent's box on average per game in this Serie A season (31), while only Torino (11.7) are averaging less than Genoa (14).


In the last game against Verona, Mattia Perin became the first Genoa goalkeeper to make 10 saves in a single Serie A game since Alessio Scarpi, in 2009 against Lecce - the next will be the 50th clean sheet for him with Genoa in the Italian top flight.

Inter’s Alexis Sánchez has found the net in his last two league games against Genoa: in his Serie A career he has never scored in three consecutive games against a single opponent.


Among the teams he’s faced more than once, Genoa is the one against which Romelu Lukaku has the best goal average in the league between Serie A and Premier League (four goals in two games) – the Rossoblù are his best victim in the Italian top flight.

Inter have won their last four Serie A meetings against Genoa by an overall score of 16-0: only once in their Serie A history have the Nerazzurri have gained five wins in a row while keeping five clean sheets against a single opponent (against Atalanta between 1951 and 1953).


None of the last 14 Serie A games between Genoa and Inter have ended as a draw, with the Nerazzuri winning nine to Genoa’s five since a 0-0 draw in May 2013.
