Inter have won each of their last four Serie A matches against Torino, scoring at least two goals per game. Never in their top-flight history have the Nerazzurri scored more than one goal for five consecutive matches against the Granata.

Inter have won their last two Serie A home games against Torino, after having gained two wins in their previous eight home games against them (D4 L2).

Inter have won 18 home league games in 2021; only two teams in Serie A history have won more home games in a single calendar year: Juventus in 2016 (20) and Torino in 1948 (20). Inter have lost only one of their last 19 Serie A games played on Wednesday (W14 D4), going down 2-1 against Sampdoria in January last season.

The last Serie A match played by Torino on a Wednesday was one of the three biggest defeats suffered by the Granata in their history in Serie A (0-7 against Milan last May); the Granata have not lost two consecutive league games on this day of the week since 2015.

Torino have never won their last match of the last four calendar years (D3 L1) in Serie A, after the Granata had won five of their previous seven years in the competition.

Inter (103) are the first team to have scored more than 100 Serie A goals in a single calendar year since AC Milan in 1950 – the Nerazzurri have scored at least 48 goals in the first half of a Serie A season for the first time since 1950/51 (53 after 19 games played).

Inter have scored 12 headed goals in Serie A this season, more than any other team. Since Serie A returned to being a 20-team league in 2004-05, only Fiorentina (13 in 2005-06) have scored more headed goals in the first half of a campaign.

Antonio Sanabria found the net in his only Serie A meeting against Inter played for Torino (March 2021 at home) – he has failed to score in each of his last 14 Serie A away matches, last scoring on the road in March 2021 against Crotone.

Lautaro Martínez has found the net in his last four Serie A games against Torino: in the era of three points per win, only three Inter players have scored in five consecutive appearances against a single opponent in the competition (Christian Vieri v Parma and Perugia, Mauro Icardi v Fiorentina and Ivan Perisic v Chievo). Since 1994/95, no player has ever scored in five consecutive Serie A games against Torino.
