It is Super Sunday for fans of the Serie A as Inter Milan welcome Roma to the San Siro. With three wins apiece and one draw in the league since 2014, Inter versus Roma has always been one of the most hotly contested fixtures of the Serie A season.

 

Flashscore presents the key facts before the match:

Earlier in the season, a Luciano Spalletti-led Inter looked like a team ready to challenge for the Scudetto once again, but since their draw with Juve in round 16 they have failed to win a game and their Champions League prospects are now under threat, let alone their title aspirations.

Despite being winless in three, Roma are just a point off fourth-placed Lazio and three off third-placed Inter. They will look to get their season back on track here, where they won 3-1 last season.

There is no doubting the stats that show that both Inter and Roma had poor outings shortly before the winter break and their festive period hoodoo might just be hanging around as both sides are still without a win in all competitions in 2018.

The h2h between these sides in recent times have been fairly even, but Inter have the slight edge with three wins in their last six SA clashes, while the men from the capital have two wins and a draw.

Players to watch: Inter’s Mauro Icardi has an impressive 18 goals to his name this season and scored two in the 3-1 win at Roma in the reverse fixture.

Edin Dzeko, the subject of transfer speculation, has nine goals for Roma and could cause Inter problems in aerial duels and from set-pieces.

Stat attack: Inter have scored 34% of their goals after the 75th minute.

Roma have not conceded any goal in 62% of their away matches and have scored in 75% of their away matches.
