Inter have now played out three consecutive draws against Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk, the first side against whom they have failed to either score or concede a goal in three matches in a row since Napoli in 1994.

This is highlighted by football statistics account Opta, who tweeted after the Nerazzurri’s Champions League group stage stalemate with the Ukrainians that the Nerazzurri have made a not entirely welcome piece of history with their trip to Ukraine.

The tweet reads: “0 – Inter have drawn nil-nil three consecutive games against a single opponent considering all competitions for their first time since 1994, against Napoli. Interruption.
