Lazio are unbeaten in three of their last four Serie A meetings against Inter (W2 D1) after having earned only one point in their previous five.

Inter and Lazio could draw both their Serie A matches in a season (1-1 in the reverse fixture) for the first time since the 2004/05 campaign.

Inter and Lazio have both won three of the last eight Serie A clashes at the Meazza Stadium (D2). Inter could win two such matches in a row for the first time since January 2012 (seven in a row).

Inter could keep five consecutive clean sheets in the league for the first time since April 2018. The last time an Antonio Conte side did that was back in November 2016 (Chelsea, six).

Samir Handanovic will play his 500th Serie A match: The Inter goalkeeper will become the 15th player to reach this milestone in the competition, equalling Ciro Ferrara (500).

Inter’s Romelu Lukaku has found the net in just one of his last six league matches (brace v Benevento); Lazio are the side against which he has played the most minutes in the competition without scoring any goal (263).

Inter could keep five consecutive clean sheets in the league for the first time since April 2018. The last time an Antonio Conte side did that was back in November 2016 (Chelsea, six).

Inter have won each of their last seven Serie A games at the Meazza: they last won eight in a row in February 2017.

Today Inter could get five clean sheets in a row in Serie A for the first time since April 2018.

Inter have won the last seven league games at San Siro, the last tie they got eight home wins in a row in Serie A was in February 2017.

The next game will mark Samir Handanovic's 500th Serie A appearance: the Inter keeper will become the 15th player to reach this milestone in the competition and will equal Ciro Ferrara's record. Inter's Romelu Lukaku has scored in only one of his last six league games (a brace against Benevento); Lazio is the team against which he has played most minutes without scoring (263).
