10 January 1915 - That Was 15 More Than They Needed

On 10 January 1915, Inter recorded their largest margin of victory, beating Vicenza 16-0.

The meeting came in the semifinal group of the Northern Italian championship, with both Inter and Vicenza having won their qualification groups in impressive fashion--Vicenza won eight of their ten qualification group matches and Inter won nine of theirs (while compiling an astounding goal differential of +52).

Those results sent the teams into the same semifinal group, where Inter steamrolled Vicenza in Milan. Their 16-0 scoreline remains a club record. Vicenza did better in the return fixture, holding Inter to a scoreless draw, but Inter still managed to top the group and advance to the Northern Italy final group, where they finished third behind Genoa and Torino.
