* Inter have won more Serie A games (75) and scored more Serie A goals (290) against Roma than they have against any other opponent in their history.

* Inter are unbeaten in their last 10 Serie A matches against Roma (W4 D6) – only between 1935 and 1941 have they had a longer streak against the Giallorossi (12 in that case). Roma’s last win against the Nerazzurri in Serie A was back in February 2017 (3-1 at the Meazza stadium).

* Both sides have won five games each (7 draws) over the last 17 Serie A meetings between Inter and Roma in Milan, with the Nerazzurri unbeaten in the last five (W2 D3).

* Inter have lost at least three of the first seven matches in a single Serie A season for the 10th time in their history. However, only on one occasion have they registered four defeats in the first eight games played, doing so in 2011/12.

* Inter have won their last home seven league games, keeping four clean sheets in the period - the Nerazzurri have never collected a streak of eight home wins in a row under Simone Inzaghi in Serie A.

* Roma have lost two of their last three league games (W1), as many defeats as in the previous 21 matches in Serie A (W11 D8).

* Inter (-9) and Roma (-8) are two of the three teams that have scored the fewest goals compared with the first seven games of the last Serie A season, along with Hellas Verona at -9. The Nerazzurri have netted 13 goals in 2022/23 compared to 22 in 2021/22 while the Giallorossi have eight this season compared to 16 in 2021/22.

* Marcelo Brozovic will miss this match; since last season, the Nerazzurri have won 69% of Serie A matches with the Croatian midfielder on the pitch (29/42), averaging 2.2 points - in the three matches without him, the Nerazzurri have never won, registering 0.7 points on average (D2 L1).

* Inter’s Denzel Dumfries has netted a goal in both his two league matches against Roma, only Giacinto Facchetti (three) has scored more goals among Inter defenders against the Giallorossi in Serie A history.

* Roma’s Andrea Belotti has scored four goals against Inter in Serie A, all at the Meazza stadium - since 2016, he has netted the most away goals against the Nerazzurri in the top-flight.
