90' + 3'
Free-kick to Inter. Cambiasso delivers the cross from the left ... Ohh! That's a terrible effort from the midfielder as the ball misses everyone because its too deep.
There will be five minutes of stoppages.
Into the final minute in Milan. Will Inter be able to keep a clean sheet? What was that madness from Moscardelli as he shoots from his own half. The ball ends up closer to the corner flag.

Ohhhh! Castaignos blows his chance to put the result beyond doubt as he shoots straight at Sorrentino under no pressure at all. What a chance for Inter.
Little over 10 minutes remain in Milan as Pazzini comes off for Castaignos. Perhaps Claudio Ranieri is thinking about upcoming games against Atalanta on Wednesday, and then Juventus on Saturday.
Pellissier wins the corner from Chivu who makes another excellent clearance. Bradley delivers it well, Cesar heads it, but it's too central for Inter's Julio Cesar.

Maicon makes a powerful run down the right and blasts the ball towards goal, but Sorrentino is happy to see the effort bend wide of his post.
Yellow Card Kamil Vacek
Ohhh! That's unlike Sneijder as his failure to control Maicon's pass allows Cruzado to clear for his side. Poor play by the Netherlands international there.
This time it's Zanetti who takes a blow to the head after a collision with Jokic. It seems like he is able to continue after a spray of the magic water.

Yellow Card Bojan Jokic
Assist Wesley Sneijder

Maicon is fouled. Free-kick to Inter on the edge of the area. Chivu and Sneijder stand over the ball. Sneijder curls it over and around the wall ... Ohhhh! What a save from Sorrentino who parries clear. Corner to Inter.
Yellow Card Thiago Motta
Ohhh! Another good chance for Inter as they continue sweeping forward. Zarate crosses for Cambiasso, but he fails to connect cleanly and Chievo scramble the ball clear.

Zarate dazzles and turns down the left side for Inter. He gets his cross away, but no-one is there to meet the ball as another chance is wasted.
First real clear-cut chance for Pazzini who is put through by Cambiasso's fine pass, but his shot takes a deflection off Morero. It's an Inter corner. Cleared by Chievo as the cross is headed away.
Maicon in for Pazzini who makes an angled run. The Italian back-heels the ball for the Brazilian as they try a one-two move, but Cesar's foot saves Chievo from danger.
Inter are moving the ball around well, but they are not making any in- roads. No chances worthy of mention just yet as we have a sluggish start to the game.
