Everything you need to know ahead of matchday 19 in Serie A


PREVIOUS MEETINGS

The game on Monday 23 January at 20.45 CET will be the 29th time Inter and Empoli have faced each other in Serie A. The record shows 22 wins for the Nerazzurri against the Tuscans' three, with three draws completing the picture. No other team has collected more league wins against the side from Tuscany than Inter.

HOME ADVANTAGE

Since the beginning of the 2021/22 season, Inter have won 22 home league games out of 28, collecting 69 points in total: no other side in Serie A has done better. The Nerazzurri have also netted 69 times at San Siro over the same time period, another record for Simone Inzaghi's men.

NERAZZURRI FLASH

Inter have scored eight goals in the opening 15 minutes of play, more than any other side in this season's 2022/23 Serie A. The quickest of them all was Lautaro Martinez's 3rd-minute strike that saw off Hellas Verona last weekend. Furthermore, only Napoli (21) have scored more than the Nerazzurri (20) in the first half of play.

5 x 3

Inter are the only side in Serie A to have three players who have scored at least five goals in the league campaign so far: Lautaro Martinez, Edin Dzeko and Nicolò Barella, with nine, seven, and five goals, respectively.
