* Inter have won their last two Serie A matches against Roma and have not achieved three consecutive wins against the Giallorossi in the competition since 1999 (four) - the last season in which the the Nerazzurri kept clean sheets in both league games against the Capitoline was 1991/92.

* Inter have not lost against Roma in Serie A at the Meazza since February 2017 (3-1, Radja Nainggolan netting his only Serie A brace in that game) - three draws and a Nerazzurri win since then.

* Inter have won their last three league games, as many wins as they recorded in their previous 10 games played in 2022 - the Nerazzurri, are with Fiorentina and Udinese (before the postponed game against Salernitana), one of the three teams to have won all of their games played in April.
