Scoreless run and a six year wait: All the key stats ahead of Milan vs. Inter

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter will contest the first Derby della Madonnina of the season this evening at the San Siro, and it is a fixture that always carries a bit more meaning.

The Rossoneri are looking to defend the title they took from the Nerazzurri last season, but it will be no easy task with Inter one point ahead in the standings. You can read our preview here, while below are the best pre-match stats…

➤ Following their 2-1 victory after trailing against Inter last February, courtesy of an Olivier Giroud brace (2-1), AC Milan are looking to win consecutive games against Inter for the first time since 2011 (their first two league Derbies played under Massimiliano Allegri).

➤ Milan have failed to score in each of their last two games against Inter in all competitions, in the Coppa Italia semi-final ties in March-April 2022, and could go three consecutive Derbies without scoring for the first time since 1980, when the Rossoneri lost three matches in a row against their rivals between Serie A and Coppa Italia under Massimo Giacomini.

➤ Milan last won, as the designated hosting side, against Inter in Serie A back in January 2016, under Sinisa Mihajlovic (3-0, courtesy of Alex, Bacca and Niang goals); Inter have won three games and drawn three more against Rossoneri since then.

➤ Milan have won five consecutive home games in Serie A and could win six such matches in a row for the first time since August 2014, under Clarence Seedorf and Filippo Inzaghi.

➤ Inter are the only team (excluding relegated and newly promoted sies) not to draw a Serie A match since last April: they have 11 wins (at least three more than any other side) and two losses in the period.

➤ Milan have kept a clean sheet in their last two Serie A matches, and could do so in three of their first five top-flight seasonal games in three campaigns in a row for the third time in their
history (after 1952/53, 1953/54,1954/55 and 1978/79, 1979/80 and 1981/82).

➤ Simone Inzaghi has only won one point in his first two Derbies in Serie A since joining the Nerazzurri; the last Inter coach to not win any of his first three matches against Milan in the top-flight was Osvaldo Bagnoli, in 1993 (D2 L1).

➤ The next will be Rafael Leão’s 100th match in Serie A – among players born since 1999, Leão has provided the most assists (16) in the competition, and he is third considering only goals: 24,
behind only Vlahovic (55) and Pinamonti (25).

➤ Milan are Joaquín Correa’s favourite target in Serie A (four goals); the Inter striker has scored four goals in his last five appearances in the competition, after having gone goalless in each of the previous 18.

➤ Lautaro Martínez has been involved in a goal in each of his first four league appearances so far (three goals, one assist); only Zlatan Ibrahimovic (2007/08) and Nicolò Barella (2021/22) have had a hand in a goal in their first five Serie A seasonal appearances for Inter since 2004/05 (since Opta started collecting assists).
