Made a good save from a Rui Pedro free kick in first half stoppage time, but was mainly a spectator for the majority of the game as the ball was tied up in a midfield battle.
Battled and harried for the ball throughout the game, as his consistent work ethic shone through. Rarely beaten for pace, as his marker failed to get in behind the Japanese international too often.
Managed to get forward and aid his side's attacks, as well as playing solidly in his own half. Picked up a needless yellow card for closing down and fouling Godemeche in the first half.
Remained solid and untroubled by Maah throughout, as the 24-year-old essentially shut the Frenchman out of the game.
Was a worthy partner for Ranocchia, and performed his duties efficiently, as neither Rui Pedro or Maah enjoyed any joy against the Inter central defensive pairing.
Threaded through some well-weighted passes for Palacio and Cassano to run onto, and got a deserved assist for supplying the ball for Palacio's opener.
Displayed a good range of passing, looking composed in possession for a young player. Threaded through numerous great passes for his team-mates to run onto, and the starlet looks to have already found his feet in Italy.
Battled well in the centre of midfield, which Inter dominated much more in the second half, as the visitors dropped deeper and tired.
His hesitancy was to blame for Inter not scoring twice in the opening stages and he failed to have the metronome-like impact on the game that is his trademark.
Was imperious in possession, and played a range of intelligent passes, which at times his team-mates did not anticipate. He was the creative spark in the Inter side, who looked less potent after his substitution.
Made himself big on two occasions to deny Rodrigo Palacio in the first half, as the Portuguese keeper came out on top in several one-on-one duels.
Battled and worked hard throughout, but was generally overpowered and overrun, as Inter pushed on with the likes of Guarin in the later stages.
Although he struggled with the pace of Palacio at times, he had a steady game, as Inter were forced to play the ball wide rather than working it through the middle.
Palacio and Cassano regularly peeled off the central defenders and into wide areas, with Pinto struggling to deal with the technical ability of Cassano especially.
Delivered one quality ball in the first half, which Rui Pedro should probably have converted, but otherwise had a very quiet game.
Made one particularly good recovering challenge in the first half to deny Cassano from bearing down on goal, and was reasonably solid throughout, as Inter really struggled to break through Cluj.
Similarly to Piccolo, he had a solid game, breaking up play and helping his side to stay compact as they dropped deep in the later stages.
Had a very poor game, failing to even have an attempt on target, and spurned several good free kick opportunities from dangerous areas.
Was strong and composed in the centre of midfield for the visitors, but was substituted in the first half after coming off worst in a challenge with Alvaro Pereira.
Struggled to have any kind of impact on the game. Although he was quite heavily involved in the opening stages as Cluj pushed on, in the second half he was practically invisible.
Struggled to break through at any given point of the game, as he was marshalled by Ranocchia and Silvestre. His pace failed to trouble the Inter defence whatsoever.
Looked composed in possession upon taking to the field, but did not have a huge impact on the match. Is looking to be turning into a good impact substitute.
Took his two chances fantastically well, with two delightful lofted finishes to beat the opposition goalkeeper. Was unfortunate not to convert a hat-trick due to other spurned opportunities, but he was a class above the rest.
Did not have as strong a game as the man he replaced, as the 32-year-old had a slightly harder time of things in the centre of the park.
Similarly to the man he replaced, Hora failed to really get a touch of the ball late on, as Inter pushed for a second goal and his side were content to sit deep and hope Inter did not double their lead.
