The matches between Roma and Inter have produced the most goals in Serie A history: 511, at least 38 more than any other – the Nerazzurri have won their joint-most matches against the Giallorossi in the top-flight (73, level with v Bologna).

Inter are unbeaten in the last eight Serie A matches against Roma (W2 D6), the longest open streak without a win for the Giallorossi against a single opponent in the competition - the last Roma win against the Nerazzurri came back in February 2017, 3-1 via a Radja Nainggolan brace.

Roma have lost only one of their last 12 Serie A matches against Inter at the Olimpico stadium: 1-3 in August 2017 (W5 D6), however they have drawn each of their last three (each of these 2-2).

Roma have kept the most clean sheets in home Serie A games in 2021: 10, including four in their most recent five matches. If they score in this game, Inter (currently 17) will equal their longest streak of scoring in consecutive away matches in Serie A: 18 away league games in a row, established between October 1950 and September 1951.

Roma (264) and Inter (258) have attempted the most shots in total in Serie A 2021/22 - however, the Roma players with the most shots attempted so far – Lorenzo Pellegrini (44) and Tammy Abraham (39) – won’t play in this match (due to injury and suspension respectively).

José Mourinho has lost only one of his 45 home games as a manager in Serie A (W34 D10): the first 38 came with Inter, who he will face for the first time. His last match as Inter’s manager was in the Champions League final, which he won on 22/05/2010 v Bayern Munich.

Since playing in Serie A (2018/19), Nicolò Zaniolo, who played in the Inter youth team, has collected 20 yellow cards in 66 top-flight games: among players who haven picked up at least 20 yellow cards during that period, only Francesco Cassata and Pasquale Schiattarella (who are defensive midfielders) have played fewer minutes than the Roma player (4182).

Lautaro Martinez is in line with his scoring from in the last two league seasons: eight goals in the first 15 matches of this Serie A, in 2020/21 he had nine, in 2019/20 he had eight. Roma are the team he has played against the most often in Serie A (six meetings) without finding the net.

Edin Dzeko has not found the net in any of his last six league appearances: the Bosnian had scored at least seven goals in the first 15 Serie A games in three of his six seasons played with Roma (12 in 2016/17, eight in 2017/18 and seven also in 2020/21, when he didn’t score any more goals in the rest of season).
