MILAN – After Sunday's triumph over Parma at the Tardini thanks to late goals from de Vrij and Bastoni, Inter are back at San Siro as they host Brescia on matchday 29 in Serie A, kick-off for the game coming at 19:30 CEST this evening.
NUMBERS AND STATISTICS
Inter and Brescia will be meeting for the 46th time in Serie A, the past record showing 25 Nerazzurri wins, 16 draws and just four wins for “Le Rondinelle”, three of which have come at the Stadio Rigamonti. The Nerazzurri’s most recent win came earlier this season in a game which saw both Lautaro Martinez and Lukaku on the scoresheet. Inter have always been on target in recent times, managing to score in each of their last eleven Serie A clashes with Brescia as these games ended in seven wins, three draws and just one defeat. Conte’s side arrive at this game on 61 points in the table, having won 18, drawn seven and lost three games so far this season.
Stefan de Vrij is the only defender in the league to have recorded at least three goals and three assists this season, with his next appearance also being his 150th in the Italian top flight. Our Nerazzurri stalwart was the star of the show in the Nerazzurri’s last outing, with his goal sparking a comeback for Antonio Conte’s side as Alessandro Bastoni, another member of our back line, headed home to secure the win with his second league goal of the season.
ANTONIO CONTE'S WORDS
"We've had little time to prepare for the match against Brescia but we know what the goal is, to play well and try and earn three points. We know it's like a mini tournament and we need to get the win."
Brescia go into their clash against the Nerazzurri off the back of two draws against Fiorentina and Genoa. Alfredo Donnarumma scored his sixth goal of the season in the side’s last fixture, with Alessandro Semprini also on the scoresheet for his first of the year. Diego Lopez’s side sit on 18 points in the table after four wins, six draws and 18 defeats. Currently sitting second last in the table, Brescia have scored 25 goals this season (ten on the road), conceding 52.
