MILAN - Here are some facts and figures - provided by Football Data - ahead of this evening's match against Lazio at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (kick-off 20:45).Inter, only failed to score once in the last 22 home games
Inter have scored in all but one of their last 22 home matches: the last time the Nerazzurri didn't manage to find the back of the net at the Meazza was when they lost 0-1 to Bologna on 10 March. They've plundered 42 goals in their other 21 games.
Inter and Lazio, Italy's 'busiest' sides in 2012/13
With 53 matches played so far, no team has played more football in 2012/13 than Lazio and Inter. Hernanes, Zanetti and Ledesma are also the top three players in terms of minutes on the pitch.
Lazio haven't beaten Inter at the San Siro since 18 October 1998, when the Biancocelesti ran out 5-3 winners. The Nerazzurri have won nine and drawn eight in the 17 encounters since then.
Lazio have gone 251 minutes without conceding
Lazio's defence hasn't been breached since 20 April when they lost 1-0 away at Udinese in Serie A. Di Natale got the winner on 19 minutes. The remaining 71 minutes of that match, plus their consecutive clean sheets against Parma (0-0 away) and Bologna (6-0 at home) mean the Biacocelesti haven't leaked a goal for 251 minutes.
Lazio haven't found the net away for 254 minutes
Lazio haven't found the net on the road since 8 April when they secured a 1-1 draw in the Rome derby. Hernanes bagged the opener on 16 minutes: the remaining 74 minutes of that match, along with the league visits to Udine (0-1 defeat) and Parma (0-0), means Petkovic's men haven't scored away in the league for 254 minutes.
Lazio: 100th appearance in Italy for Hernanes
Anderson Hernanes could make his 100th appearance in Serie A tonight. The Brazilian made his debut on 29 August 2010 in Sampdoria 2-0 Lazio.
