The Polish shot stopper had a relatively quiet evening, but the former Celtic man couldn't do anything about Inter's two goals.
The full-back looked strong going forward and levelled the score when his cross from the left somehow found its was into the net. However, both Inter goals came down his side.
Unfortunate to open the scoring with an own goal early on, and struggled to cope with the lively Eto'o throughout the game.
Was hardly involved going forward, but did a good job at the back against Nagatomo. Booked in the first half.
Gamberini was his side's best defender tonight as he kept Pazzini quiet for the most part. Beaten only once by the Inter striker and that immediately cost Fiorentina a point.
Good outing from the holding midfielder who made sure Sneijder couldn't leave his mark on the game. Provided his back-four with excellent cover whenever needed and made important interceptions
Taken off in the first half after sustaining an injury.
Montolivo was by far the best man on the pitch. His passing was simply outstanding as he hardly lost possession. Deserved a goal, but saw his first half shot blocked by an opponent.
Struggled occasionally against the onrushing Maicon, but always worked hard. Came close to finding the net once after the break.
Caused Cordoba all kinds of trouble with his intelligent movement, but he really should have scored. Below par finishing cost his side a good result.
The Romanian attacker almost gave Fiorentina the lead in the first half when he surprised Julio Cesar with a long range strike. Always looked like the one to make something happen up front for the hosts.
Really should have done better for the equaliser and showed shaky hands again after a Mutu strike. Cesar never really looked comfortable between the sticks.
Ranocchia was his side's best defender tonight and made some superb tackles. Showed some textbook defending against Gilardino in the 56th minute.
As always, Zanetti ran his socks off for the full 90 minutes. Maybe could have done more in possession, but still a satisfying display.
The Japanese full-back was never really troubled at the back and made some good runs forward. His deliveries weren't too accurate though.
Allowed Pasqual too much space for Fiorentina's goal, but had a good game otherwise. Always dangerous going forward and sent in some good crosses. Should have scored in the first half, but aimed wide.
Lost sight of Gilardino on more than one occasion and was lucky that the Fiorentina striker failed to find the net.
Sneijder was hardly involved in a largely anonymous performance. Couldn't dictate play in his usual manner, and was taken off in the closing stages of the game with a groin injury.
Couldn't really leave his mark on the game as he struggled to cope with Montolivo. Not the best of matches for the Argentina international.
Stankovic always looked lively in midfield and unleashed a few good shots. His strike in the 71st minute in particular deserved better.
A typical performance from Pazzini. Invisible for large parts of the game until he showed up at the right moment to help Inter to the full three points with a well taken goal.
The Cameroon star has every reason to be pleased with his performance. Sent in the cross that resulted in the opener before providing the assist for the winner after a superb individual action.
