Inter Milan beat city rivals AC Milan last time out (2-0) and extended their 100% Serie A (SA) run since the start of this season. The ‘Nerazzurri’ have scored the opening goal in each game this term, leading at half-time on three occasions. However, they were ahead at the break just once in the last eight competitive H2Hs held here. Antonio Conte’s side have kept a first-half clean sheet in all five competitive games this season, conceding both goals in the first 20 minutes of the second half. That’s a trend seen last SA season also, when Inter kept a first-half clean sheet on 16 occasions (84.21%).
Lazio have won only one of their last three competitive games, despite scoring the opening goal inside the first 30 minutes each time. Their tendency to start well is evidenced by the fact they were leading ‘to nil’ at half-time in three of four SA fixtures this season. It’s the final 30 minutes where their problems lie though, with the ‘Biancocelesti‘ conceding three of their five competitive goals (60%) in this period in 2019/20. Furthermore, the same was true last campaign when they let in 11 of 21 away league goals (52.38%) in this period, as well as three of the last six in H2Hs (90 mins only).
