* Inter and AS Roma will face each other on a Wednesday for the sixth time in Serie A TIM: so far, both teams have two wins each and a draw in the most recent game (1-1 February 2008).

* Inter’s last Serie A TIM win against AS Roma at the Meazza was back in October 2015, a 1-0 win thanks to Gary Medel’s goal (D3 L1 since).

* Inter have picked up 85 points so far: should they win the three remaining games, they would set their second-best tally in Serie A TIM, after the 97 they won in the 2006/07 campaign.
