Barely had a save to make, but picked up a late yellow card for time wasting.
M. De Sciglio
Overlapped decently, but slammed a good opening for a cross into the side netting, and was lost positionally once or twice.
Lost out once or twice out wide, but otherwise put in a solid defensive shift. Offered nothing going forward though.
Like Mexes, he performed his duties down to the last minute, and was rarely bettered by his Inter counterparts.
Made a last ditch tackle on Palacio, which was the highlight of an assured display for the Frenchman.
N. de Jong
A strong defensive shift, and came up with the all important game winner, rising highest to nod home a corner from Balotelli.
Decent enough in the middle, if lacking a little dynamism.
Smacked the crossbar with a vicious effort in what was a buy first half, but he began to tire later on in the game.
Did not neglect his defensive duties, and was crucial in maintaining possession during Milan's best spells.
Pulled off some neat dribbles but nevertheless could not provide much noticeable end product.
Not always involved or willing to exert maximum effort, but he came up with the game changing assist from a well flighted free kick.
Solid between the posts, though he could do little about the goal.
Picked up a yellow for a late challenge, but that typified his committed approach to the game.
Provided some good width initially, but as the match went on, he drifted to the margins of the game.
Did what he had to do defensively, not often troubled by Balotelli.
Offered real width and fashioned an early chance with some neat footwork that freed him from his marker.
One slip up ins positioning on De Sciglio aside, he was composed and reliable on the side of the defence.
Invisible in the first half, and not much help in the second, save for a few occasional flashes of quality.
Advanced well with the ball, but his decision making at the end of it was often lacking.
Could not do much to wrest control of the midfield away from Milan, and picked up a yellow for his troubles.
Often isolated during Milan's spells of possession, and frustration began to boil over on occasion.
His movement off the ball kept the defence honest, but he wasn't able to get on the end of much in the end.
