Goal.com rates the performances of the players involved in Claudio Ranieri's debut win as Inter coach against Bologna as goals from Pazzini, Milito and Lucio secured the points

    Jean-François Gillet

    Commanded his area well, and almost saved Pazzini's opener. A formidable presence in the air, but was forced to withdraw after picking up an injury.

  • Mikael Antonsson

    3.00

    Mikael Antonsson

    Had his fair share of trouble dealing with Pazzini & co. as he was caught flat-footed on a number of occasions. Struggled with his positioning and marking.

  • Daniele Portanova
    1

    3.00

    Daniele Portanova

    Won a penalty for his team, and did his best to keep Forlan on a tight leash. Tackled hard, and can not be blamed for his team conceding three goals.

  • Archimede Morleo

    Archimede Morleo Flop of the Match

    Conceded a penalty, was sent off, and was shaky all game as Nagatomo wrecked havoc down his flank. Offered virtually nothing in attack.

  • Gaby Mudingayi

    3.50

    Gaby Mudingayi

    The ex-Lazio man was a commanding presence in the centre of the pitch, tackling hard, and keeping it simple on the ball. Covered a lot of ground and showed great work-rate.

  • Federico Casarini

    Federico Casarini

    Inter rarely attacked down his flank, which gave him time and space to make an impact in the final third, which he failed to do. All in all, an average game.

  • Panagiotis Kone
    1

    3.00

    Panagiotis Kone

    The Brescia loanee could not offer much of a threat tonight as he was well marshalled by Lucio and Cambiasso. A game to forget.

  • G. Ramírez
    2
    1
    3.00

    G. Ramírez

    Showed why he is Bologna's biggest star. Sent in an almost impeccable free-kick in the 65th minute, and was a focal point in every attack by his team.

  • Diego Pérez
    1
    0
    3.00

    Diego Pérez

    The Uruguayan had a good game in the middle of the park, and proved to be a match for Inter's double pivot. Distributed the ball well, and constantly hassled the opposition.

  • Alessandro Diamanti
    0
    2
    3.00

    Alessandro Diamanti

    Aside from converting the penalty, the ex-West Ham man offered very little of his trademark creativity and predatory instincts. Did not receive much support, and it showed.

  • Marco Di Vaio
    2
    0
    2.50

    Marco Di Vaio

    The striker had a decent game, but could be blamed for wasting his side's best chance in the first half. Turned Samuel and Chivu more than once, but failed to score and will be disappointed with that.

Substitutions

  • Rene Krhin

    2.50

    Rene Krhin

    The ex-Inter man looked lively and inventive on the ball, and can count on earning more minutes in the future.

  • Robert Acquafresca

    2.50

    Robert Acquafresca

    The ex-Inter man failed to impress as he was largely anonymous in his short cameo.

  • Julio César
    12

    3.00

    Julio César Top of the Match

    A confident performance from the goalkeeper, who almost saved Diamanti's penalty, and then pulled off an immense save to stop Ramirez's thundering free-kick from flying in the top left corner in the 65th minute. A great outing.

  • Walter Samuel
    2
    5
    2.50

    Walter Samuel

    Inexplicably conceded a penalty defending from a free-kick, and struggled for pace. His positioning was very bad, and was too reckless in this game.

  • Lúcio
    6
    1
    3.50

    Lúcio

    The Brazilian had a game fitting of his best days as he marshalled the defence, and sealed the three points for the Nerazzurri with a superb header.

  • Cristian Chivu
    5
    3
    3.00

    Cristian Chivu

    The Romanian was hardly tested in a defensive sense, but still managed to struggle somehow. Not much of an influence in attack, either.

  • Yuto Nagatomo
    20
    0
    3.00

    Yuto Nagatomo

    The Japanese international allowed Di Vaio to rush down his flank in the first half for what is the only black spot on a good performance. A strong showing in attack, and a rock at the back after the break.

  • Javier Zanetti
    10
    0
    3.00

    Javier Zanetti

    The veteran proved once again that old is gold as he easily slotted in a more central position and was impressive. Passed the ball well, and was on hand to lend weight in defence when necessary

  • Esteban Cambiasso
    9
    0
    3.50

    Esteban Cambiasso

    Assisted the opener, and was impressive in the centre of the pitch. Superbly contributed both in defence and in attack, and generally had a great game.

  • Joel Obi
    12
    1
    3.00

    Joel Obi

    A promising performance by the youngster, whose pace and trickery helped him dribble past opponents with ease. His final ball was not of great quality, but time is on his side, and he will certainly improve in the future.

  • Coutinho
    1
    12
    2.50

    Coutinho

    The Brazilian struggled as he failed to make an impact in attack. Conceded one particularly needless and dangerous free-kick in the first half, and was replaced after the break.

  • Diego Forlán
    8
    9
    3.00

    Diego Forlán

    The Uruguayan is still blending into the side and it showed. Tried some clever passes, but it just was not his game. He did play an important part in the opener, however.

  • Giampaolo Pazzini
    14
    1
    3.50

    Giampaolo Pazzini

    The ex-Fiorentina man was impressive as he netted the opener with a clinical strike, and released Diego Milito in the penalty area and Inter won a penalty. Looked confident on the ball, and willing to give his all for the team.

Substitutions

  • Jonathan
    11
    2
    2.50

    Jonathan

    A good cameo from the new arrival, who impressed on the ball.

  • Sulley Muntari
    8
    4
    3.00

    Sulley Muntari

    One rarely writes 'good' and 'Muntari' in one sentence, but the Ghana international did have a decent game. Was stable in defence, and showed good work rate.

  • Diego Milito
    12
    1
    3.00

    Diego Milito

    Won a penalty, which he converted, and impressed with his movement. A promising cameo.
