Inter v Roma, top of the table clash backed up by the figures
The Nerazzurri and Giallorossi have produced record numbers ahead of their big clash in Week 7 of Serie A 2013/14.

Roma one goal away from 100 at Inter
Should Garcia's men find the net tomorrow it will be the club's 100th strike away to Inter. The first of their 99 came on 20 December 1931 when Volk scored in the 3rd minute of a 2-1 loss for the Giallorossi.
