On a statistical level, Inter Milan are starting to resemble Barcelona and Man City teams of the past this season.

Today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, highlight the Nerazzurri’s remarkable record over the Serie A season so far.

Inter beat Lecce yesterday to hold onto their nine-point advantage at the top of the Serie A table.

And that is with a game in hand on their closest title rivals Juventus.

Naturally, this is the most important aspect of the result. Inter are still fighting for the title against opposition in the here and now.

But as Tuttosport note, the consistency with which Inter are winning – and winning in emphatic style – is starting to put them on par with teams from the past as well.

Inter Statistically Parallel With Peak Barcelona & Man City Teams

Inter have played 25 matches in Serie A so far this campaign.

On 21 occasions, those have resulted in wins for the Nerazzurri.

There was one loss, with Sassuolo coming back to win at the San Siro in September.

And then there have been three draws – at home to Bologna, and away to Juventus and Genoa.

Moreover, Inter have not been winning matches by narrow margins. The 4-0 rout of Lecce yesterday was only the latest match in which the Nerazzurri have run up the scoreline.

Inter have scored a total of 63 goals in Serie A so far this season.

That works out to an average of right around 2.5 goals per match in the league.

Inter have not failed to score in a single Serie A match this campaign.

And there have been sixteen clean sheets in the league. That is nearly double the amount of matches in which Inter’s goal has been breached – nine.

All of this is a testament to the degree of control that Inter have had.

For Tuttosport, it is now only fair to compare this Nerazzurri team to the Barcelona and Manchester City teams of Pep Guardiola.
