    Naldo

    The Brazilian produced a brilliant sliding challenge to deny Palacio in the first half but he sometimes found it difficult to cope with the Argentine's movement.

  • Danilo

    Danilo

    Was caught out of position on several occasions and found the ball played in behind him too often. Also sliced a free kick out of play for a throw.

  • Maurizio Domizzi

    Maurizio Domizzi

    Held a good defensive line but a number of sloppy passes put Udinese under unnecessary pressure in the first half.

  • Silvan Widmer

    2.00

    Allan

    Made some strong challenges and gave some protection to the Udinese defence. However, he was overshadowed by the likes of Cambiasso and Alvarez.

  • Badu

    1.50

    Badu Flop of the Match

    He was Udinese's liveliest attacker with his willingness to take on his marker down the right and get crosses into the box. However, he often failed to pick out a team-mate with his final ball.

  • Roberto Pereyra

    2.00

    Roberto Pereyra

    The Argentine found himself overpowered by the likes of Cambiasso and Guarin in midfield as he struggled to supply service to Muriel and Di Natale. Was substituted shortly after half time.

  • Muriel

    2.00

    Muriel

    The Colombian looked to cause problems with his pace but he often lacked a final product in the final third. Missed a good opportunity in the first half.

  • Antonio Di Natale

    2.50

    Antonio Di Natale

    Showed one glimpse of his magic to force Handanovic into a smart save although on the whole he lacked service and was withdrawn due to a hamstring injury.

    The young Uruguayan was keen to impress but lacked the quality to make a difference.

  • Samir Handanoviç

    3.00

    Samir Handanoviç

    Secured a clean sheet against his former club and although he had little to do, he did make one fine save to deny Di Natale in the second half.

  • Jonathan

    Jonathan

    Worked tirelessly down the right to assist both the attack and the defence before being substituted with a hamstring problem.

  • Juan Jesus
    22

    3.00

    Juan Jesus

    The Braziliian defender produced a solid defensive display to restrict the impact of Di Natale and won the majority of his individual duels.

  • Andrea Ranocchia

    3.50

    Andrea Ranocchia

    Returned to the starting line-up and capped an assured performance with a brilliant volley to double Inter's lead.

    The 35-year-old became the latest Inter casualty as he was substituted before half-time with a muscular injury.

  • Yuto Nagatomo

    Yuto Nagatomo

    The Japan international ran his socks off and restricted service to the Udinese strikers from wide areas. However, he did miss a great chance to put Inter into the lead.

  • Ricardo Álvarez

    3.50

    Ricardo Álvarez

    His impressive start to the season continues and he was lively throughout with his clever movement and vision. Showed good stamina to get forward late on to score the third.

  • Fredy Guarín
    29

    4.00

    Fredy Guarín

    The Colombian constantly got the better of Domizzi and he was unlucky to see a shot cannon back off the base of the post in the second half.

  • Esteban Cambiasso

    Esteban Cambiasso

    His excellent reading of the play and strong tackling helped Inter to dominate the midfield. His corner provided the assist for Ranocchia's strike.
