Inter’s last 10 games against German sides in the Champions League have seen a total of 39 goals scored (19 for and 20 against), at an average of 3.9 per match.
Inter have only opened a Champions League campaign with a victory in one of the last six tournaments when they’ve played their first game at home (other games ending in three draws and two losses), beating Spurs 2-1 in 2018/19. They are winless in the last three campaigns, drawing against Slavia Prague in 2019/20 and Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2020-21, before losing to the eventual winners Real Madrid last term.
Bayern are unbeaten in their previous 10 meetings with Italian opposition in the Champions League (eight wins and two draws) since a defeat to Inter in March 2011. In fact, the last Italian team to keep a clean sheet against Bayern in the competition was Inter in the 2009/10 final (2-0), with the German side netting in each of their 14 such games since then (36 goals).
Since 2003-04, Bayern Munich have won all 18 of their opening group stage games of a Champions League campaign. Sadio Mané could become just the fourth African player to reach 25 goals in the Champions League (currently on 24), after Didier Drogba (44), Mohamed Salah (36) and Samuel Eto’o (30).
