The Brazil number one was a spectator for the majority of the match, but seemed reliable enough when called upon.
The Japanese full-back impressed yet again in his latest appearance for the Nerazzurri with his all-action approach, and eventually silenced Sardo and diluted his opposing number's impact.
The veteran Argentinian was his classy self in the centre of midfield, showcasing much of his game and looked a class above the Chievo midfielders today.
It was another typical performance from the marauding full-back as his attacking game couldn’t be faulted, which coincided with his first goal in a year, but defensively looked a little suspect at times.
A welcome return to the team for the Brazilian. He was never truly tested in the Inter defence and always looking to initiate attacks from deep and it proved to be a massive presence at the back.
Looked far more assured alongside Lucio today, and despite a poor piece of play in the first half where Moscardelli was almost through, he showed his defensive potential throughout, often covering for Maicon.
The Moroccan is not and never will be a trequartista, this performance was evidence of that. He showed an alarming lack of invention and imagination in the first half, but dropped to midfield in the second in favour of Sneijder and looked far more comfortable.
Despite his well taken goal, it was a weak performance from the ex-Real Madrid defensive midfielder by his standards, who didnt stamp his authority on the game like he would have hoped.
An ineffective display from the Serbian midfielder, who looked a far cry from his outrageous antics in midweek in the Champions League. Substituted at half-time for Sneijder.
A very energetic first-half from the fleet-footed hitman who was Inter’s most enterprising player at one point. However, he couldn’t maintain his level in the second and was replaced on 74 minutes by Thiago Motta.
Had a lot of movement, looked for a couple of breaks and almost scored a goal from a Maicon's pass.
Couldn't do much about any of the goals, but did pull off a good save to deny Nagatomo late on.
A very quiet first-half from the Slovenia full-back, where he couldn’t live with Maicon’s all-action approach, but started to show more positivity in the second half.
Got turned easily by the likes of Eto'o, and struggled to contain Inter's attacking play at times
The Guinean starlet showcased more of the reasons why he is so highly-rated in Calcio. A positive performance from the former Chateauroux midfielder, who showed great vision and movement, and was surprisingly replaced by Marcolini midway through the second half.
Bar his unfortunate deflection for the Cambiasso goal, he was able to handle the Nerazzurri pressure.
Made a promising start to the match with some fine attacking moves from his right-back position, but his impact slowly died down and had to resort to defending deeply.
A lacklustre display from the Italian midfielder, who looked several classes below the opposition.
A typically gritty and robust performance from the Swiss, who tried his best to shut down the hosts and break down their attacks.
The on-loan Uruguayan attacking midfielder failed to find any inspiration nor the spark to open the Inter defence, and his mediocre display ended on 75 minutes when he was replaced by Fernando Uribe.
The one-cap Italian had his fair share of goalscoring chances, but failed to break his duck in this match, much to his disappointment.
The former Triestina man looked out of his depth in attack against the Inter defence and was easily cast aside. Substituted for Cyril Thereau, 10 minutes into the second half.

- 2 I. Córdoba

Came on for Eto'o and helped Inter retain possession to see off the end of the match, showing impressive athleticism that wasn't present against Milan.
His half-time introduction was a massive factor in Inter's second-half revival, playing an instrumental part in his side's attacking invention.
Didn't offer much in the striking department, with just his poor chip shot being the highlight.

- 84 N. Pulzetti
Constant's replacement offered very little in terms of midfield presence.
Showed neat touches late on and saw his chance to equalise hit the side netting.
The Frenchman linked up well with the likes of Constant and Pellissier, but couldn't find an opening.
