Player Ratings: Inter 2-0 Livorno

A freak own goal from Francesco Bardi coupled with a late Yuto Nagatomo strike gives the Nerrazzurri back-to-back league victories

    Samir Handanoviç

    It was one of the Slovenian's easier evenings as he was not forced into a meaningful save all game

  • Jonathan

    Jonathan Top of the Match

    He was magnificent roaming up and down the right wing and it was his cross that was fumbled into the net by Bardi for the opening goal.

  • Andrea Ranocchia

    Andrea Ranocchia

    Although he was often out-jumped by Paulinho, he produced an assured defensive performance to keep his side's clean sheet intact.

  • Walter Samuel

    Walter Samuel

    The Argentine defender produced some solid challenges and crucial interceptions to frustrate the Livorno attack.

  • Rolando

    Rolando

    He came into the side to fill in for the suspended Juan Jesus and did a fine job in keeping Siligardi and Emeghara quiet.

  • Yuto Nagatomo

    Yuto Nagatomo

    He was rarely exposed down his wing and, although he did not get forward as much as Inter would have liked in the first half, showed good stamina to get into the box late on to wrap up the win.

  • Ricardo Álvarez

    Ricardo Álvarez

    It was a frustrating night for Alvarez, who failed to show his recent good form. He did have one brilliant shot saved by Bardi but found it difficult to break down the Livorno defence.

  • Fredy Guarín

    Fredy Guarín

    Like Alvarez, he did not display the best of his creative qualities and was unsurprisingly withdrawn midway through the second half.

  • Esteban Cambiasso

    Esteban Cambiasso

    The midfield enforcer once again showed his tenacious nature by breaking up a series of opposition attacks and helped Inter to control the midfield with his accurate passing.

  • Saphir Taider

    Saphir Taider

    The Algerian showed glimpses of quality but, on the whole, he was well contained by the Livorno defence and struggled to fashion openings.

  • Rodrigo Palacio

    3.00

    Rodrigo Palacio

    Although he did not get on the scoresheet, he looked lively and caused the Livorno defence problems with his clever movement.

    Javier Zanetti

    Received a wonderful ovation on his comeback from injury and rolled back the years with a brilliant run late on which led to the second goal.

  • Mateo Kovačić

    Mateo Kovačić

    The Croatian made a good impact from the bench and his excellent dribble and through-ball set up Nagatomo's late strike.

    Ishak Belfodil

    He entered the action as a late substitute but struggled to make an impact up front.

    Francesco Bardi Flop of the Match

    It was a night to forget for the young goalkeeper as his misjudgement led to him scoring a freak own goal.

  • Giuseppe Gemiti

    Giuseppe Gemiti

    He got into some fantastic positions down the left in the second half but his crosses often lacked quality and failed to pick out a team-mate.

  • Ibrahima Mbaye

    Ibrahima Mbaye

    He worked hard down the right and limited Nagatomo's impact in the first half. Offered good protection to the defence.

  • Federico Ceccherini

    Federico Ceccherini

    The centre-back produced a number of solid challenges, proved almost insurmountable in the air and was strong on the the ball.

  • Emerson

    Emerson

    Although the Brazilian was off-target with his free kicks, he produced a solid performance at the back, showing good anticipation to break up Inter attacks.

  • Nahuel Valentini

    Nahuel Valentini

    He hardly put a foot wrong in the back three and ensured Palacio did not get on the scoresheet with some tight marking.

  • Andrea Luci

    Andrea Luci

    The captain spurned his side's best chance in the first half and was fortunate not to concede a penalty after taking Palacio's legs away in the box. However, he was involved in most of Livorno's attacking plays.

  • Pasquale Schiattarella

    Pasquale Schiattarella

    A lively performance from the midfielder who battled tirelessly all game and was accurate in his passing.

  • Joseph Duncan

    Joseph Duncan

    The Ghanaian was perhaps too keen to impress against his parent club. He was a little rash in his tackling, whilst he could have done more to prevent Jonathan's cross which led to the opener.

  • Paulinho

    3.00

    Paulinho

    The striker ran tirelessly to create his own chances and, although he did not get on the scoresheet, showed his instincts around the box. Will miss the game against Juventus after picking up another booking.

  • Luca Siligardi

    Luca Siligardi

    The attacking midfielder struggled to make his mark on the game and created very little.

    Marco Benassi

    The on-loan Inter youngster added stability to the midfield in the second half and showed some neat touches.

    Innocent Emeghara

    Hoped to cause the Inter defence problems with his pace but found it difficult to get into the game.
