The stats that you need to know ahead of Wednesday's 18:30 CET kick-off at the Bentegodi


MILAN – Inter’s final match of 2020 is fast approaching and Antonio Conte’s men will head into it on the back of six consecutive wins in the league, a sequence that has seen them move up to 30 points after 13 matchdays. The Nerazzurri will be coming up against Juric’s Hellas Verona side, who sit on 20 points following their draw with Fiorentina and have conceded just twelve goals. The best attack will thus be facing the second-best defence.

Ahead of Wednesday’s 18:30 CET kick-off, here are all the facts and figures that you need to know.

PREVIOUS ENCOUNTERS

Wednesday’s match will be the 59th time that Inter and Verona have met in Serie A, with the Nerazzurri’s record against the Gialloblu reading as follows: 33 wins, 21 draws, four defeats. Hellas haven’t recorded a league victory over Inter since 1992, drawing four times and losing on 14 occasions since then. The last encounter between the sides ended in a 2-2 draw on 9 July 2020.

The four wins that Hellas have picked up against Inter in Serie A all came on home turf. 15 Nerazzurri wins and ten draws complete the picture when it comes to matches played in Verona. The Scaligeri have conceded at least two goals in each of the past seven home matches they’ve played against Inter in the Italian top flight, also failing to score in three of these. The Nerazzurri, meanwhile, have won six of their last nine away fixtures against Hellas Verona in Serie A (D3), scoring 20 goals (an average of 2.2 per game) in the process.

STATE OF PLAY

Inter will head into the match at the Bentegodi on 30 points in the league following six successive wins. Having scored 32 goals in their first 13 matches, Antonio Conte’s men have the best attack in Serie A. It’s Inter’s best goalscoring start to a season since 2009/10. Should they score more than one goal in Verona, they’d at least equal their best tally after 14 matches since the 1960/61 campaign (34).

Juric’s team have collected 20 points from 13 games and will take on Inter after drawing 1-1 with Fiorentina. So far this Serie A season, the Scaligeri’s record reads as follows: five wins, five draws, three defeats, with 17 goals scored and just twelve conceded – the second-best defensive record in Italy’s top division. In their last three home matches, the Gialloblu have failed to pick up a win (D1, L2): they haven’t gone four successive matches without a victory on home turf in Serie A since September 2019 (six in that case: D2, L4).

PLAYER FOCUS

Out of the players who have taken at least nine penalties, Romelu Lukaku is one of three players in the Top 5 European Leagues to have scored all of their spot-kicks since the start of the 2019/20 season. The Belgian has bagged three of Inter’s last six goals, all of which have come in the second half.

Ivan Perisic has contributed to six goals in his last three league matches against Hellas Verona, scoring three times and providing three assists.

Federico Dimarco, Marco Benassi, Faraoni and Eddie Salcedo were all once on Inter’s books but never played for the Nerazzurri in Serie A.

COACHES

Ivan Juric and Antonio Conte have come up against each other twice in Serie A: the Nerazzurri boss has won once and drawn on one occasion against his Croatian counterpart. In total, Conte has faced Verona four times as a coach in Serie A, coming away with two victories and two draws.
