MILAN – It’ll be the Nerazzurri’s first away league match since the resumption of official games. Antonio Conte’s Inter will go to the Tardini for the game which kicks off tonight at 21:45 CEST and is valid for matchday 28 of Serie A.
NUMBERS AND STATS
Tonight's match will be the 52nd Serie A game between these two teams, the results of which have been 20 Nerazzurri wins and 16 for the Crociati. 15 draws complete the tally, the last of which was in the match earlier this season, which ended in a draw after the Nerazzurri had won seven and lost one of their first eight games. Antonio Candreva scored Inter’s first goal that day as well as providing the assist for Lukaku to score the second. Conte’s team arrives at this game on 58 points, thanks to 17 wins, seven draws and three defeats.
FACT: LUKAKU AWAY
Before Romelu Lukaku, the last player to score twelve goals away from home in his first season in Serie A was Shevchenko in 1999/2000. The Belgian striker could become the first player to score 13 away goals in his debut season in the Italian top flight during the three points per win era.
Parma come into the game against the Nerazzurri after their win over Genoa thanks to four goals: a Cornelius hat-trick and Kulusevski strike, which the former assisted. The Danish forward, now on eleven league goals this season, also scored a hat-trick in the first match against the Rossoblù. D’Aversa’s team comes into the match on 39 points with eleven wins, six draws and ten defeats, having scored 37 goals and conceded 33.
STELLINI WILL BE ON INTER’S BENCH
Cristian Stellini will lead the Nerazzurri from the bench in Parma after Antonio Conte received a yellow card against Sassuolo, which triggered a one match suspension. On the eve of the game, Stellini spoke to Inter TV: “We have an important game ahead of us, because it comes after a frustrating draw. We have analysed the game and we’ve gained some useful experience for tomorrow’s match. Our composure in front of goal needs to become an important weapon for us to be victorious.”
