MILAN – We preview Siena v Inter (kick-off 15:00) with some statistics courtesy of our friends at Football Data.
Siena are one of two sides to have played out the highest number of goalless draws in Serie A this season: four league matches featuring the men from Tuscany have finished 0-0 this term, the same number as Torino.
Tommaso Rocchi meanwhile is just one away from his 100th career goal in Serie A.
This is the first meeting between coaches Giuseppe Iachini and Andrea Stramaccioni. Iachini recorded two 1-1 draws against Inter in 2010/11 when he was in charge of Brescia. Stramaccioni has met Siena twice – both times in Milan – and has won one and lost one.
All told these two teams have crossed swords 17 times in the past, with the Nerazzurri winning 12, drawing four and losing just once. In the eight clashes between the two in Siena, Inter have won six and drawn two.
Daniele Doveri of Rome is the man in charge later. He’s only officiated the Nerazzurri on one occasion (Inter 3-2 Sampdoria, this season), but he has overseen the Bianconeri on ten occasions (five wins, three draws and two defeats).
