Inter have been one of the most prolific attacking sides across the top five European leagues this season.
This fact is highlighted in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who describe the Nerazzurri as a “goal machine” and note that they are behind only Bayern Munich in terms of their goals-per-game average.
The Nerazzurri have found the back of the net 51 times across their first twenty matches in Serie A this season, making for a ratio of around 2.6 every match.
This is still not at the level of Bayern’s 3.2 goals per game in the Bundesliga, but it puts the Nerazzurri just about level with Premier League side Liverpool, their opponents in the round of sixteen of the Champions League.
Meanwhile, Manchester City have scored two goals more than the Nerazzurri, but with an extra league match played.
Inter have been lethal from set pieces this season, with six penalties, eight goals from corners, and a direct free kick all finding the back of the net in Serie A.
Meanwhile, the Nerazzurri have also generated chances regularly both from sustained spells of possession and from counterattacks, and this has put them in the company of Europe’s most formidable attacking sides.
