Rarely troubled by the Pescara attack as Inter took control of the game. One save in the first half from a free kick was about as much as the keeper had to deal with.
Broke down the left almost at will, consistently reaching the byeline and penalty area. One shot fired into the side netting, but was always a danger.
An efficient defensive performance from the Romanian, who was comfortable taking the ball out from the back. His intelligent pass set up Palacio's strike.
A simple yet intelligent pass broke the Pescara defence and left Palacio with a simple assist for Guarin, the highlight of an accomplished performance from the winger.
A very straightforward outing for the ex-Catania stopper, who was called into action only to clean up wayward Pescara clearances.
What better example for young Benassi than to play alongside Javier Zanetti in the middle. Never flashy, never hurried, passed flawlessly and his surges were a constant thorn in the visitors' side.
Made his Serie A debut, but the 18-year-old looked like an old hand in the Inter line-up. Never overawed by the step up and acquitted himself well.
The makeshift centre-back was ruthless in cutting short Pescara's attacks time and again. Not even a nasty clash of heads could discourage the combative Argentine.
The Colombian operated in a more advanced role, but responded with a display that combined perfectly his power and precision. In the right place to finish a simple goal for Inter's second.
A wonderful display from the forward, who combined tireless running with plenty of class, and took his goal to perfection to open the scoring.
A perfectly-judged stepover opened the way for Palacio in the first half, but the skilful striker failed to impose himself on the Pescara backline and make a significant impact.
Had no answer to either Palacio or Guarin's strikes as he was let down by those in front of him and came up with strong saves from Rodrigo and Cassano to keep the scoreline respectable.
Did his best to keep Cassano at bay and ensured Inter had little success down his flank.
Given a torrid time by Jonathan and Palacio when the forward drifted out wide. Was nowhere to be seen when the pair combined to set up the second goal.
Held his own at right-back, keeping Pereira relatively quiet and pitching in with a handful of excellent interceptions over the 90 minutes.
Left looking foolish by Palacio as the Argentine turned him and opened the scoring with ease. Struggled all game with his opponent's pace and skill.
Occasionally threatened when given space out wide, but had no answer to an Inter midfield on top form.
M. Lund Nielsen
Played almost as an extra centre-back to stem the Inter tide as they pushed forward throughout the game. Made some important challenges, but offered little going forward.
Wasteful in the pass, and did little to hold back Zanetti as the tireless veteran pulled the strings in the middle. Too many times possession was gifted to a blue and black shirt.
Had one of Pescara's clearest chances with a speculative header that looped over the bar. Otherwise, shackled well by De Silvestre.
Given the role of trequartista at San Siro, but had no answers for the home team's physical marking and faded into the shadows.
The young Brazilian cut a forlorn figure on the pitch, starved of the ball and a clear loser every time he tussled with the Inter backline.
