  • 89'
    SubstitutionAmauri Hernán Crespo
  • 89'
    Amauri leaves the pitch for Hernan Crespo. The ex-Juventus man had a great game, and it is ex-Inter man Crespo's turn to dazzle.
  • 87'
    Inter's Scudetto bid is in great danger now. Hopes springs eternal, but Inter should really improved their game!

    Goal Amauri
  • 86'
    GOAL! Amauri scores! Bojinov was picked out near the penalty spot and flicked the ball superbly to Amauri, who shielded the ball from Cambiasso before sending a finish past Julio Cesar.
  • 85'
    OH, SO CLOSE! Bojinov! The striker was released inside Inter's box, but Julio Cesar was first to the ball. His interception was not good, however, as it almost came back to Bojinov.
  • 83'
    Giovinco was substituted by Valery Bojinov. Can the Bulgaria international score ?
  • 82'
    SubstitutionSebastian Giovinco Valeri Bojinov
  • 82'
    Inter are struggling to leave their own half as they misplace one pass after another! Horrible development for the Nerazzurri.

  • 76'
    Lucio! Another penalty claim for Parma, this time valid! Lucio shoved Lucarelli in the air, but the referee did not blow his whistle!
  • 75'

  • 72'

    Parma are defending valiantly here, and Inter struggle to create chances. Not much time left for the Nerazzurri to save their Scudetto bid.

    Sneijder knocks down another Parma player out with a strong shot as Morrone is on the ground.

  • 63'
    Eto'o tries to make his way through three defenders on the left side of the box, but loses the ball to Paletta. Milito came on for Pazzini moments ago.

    SubstitutionGiampaolo Pazzini Diego Milito
  • 61'
    SNEIJDER! SO CLOSE INTER! The midfielder was released on the left wing and sent in a wonderful shot which fizzled wide of the right post with Mirante beaten!
  • 59'

  • 57'
    Zaccardo was shown the yellow card for a dangerous lunge on Nagatomo on the left wing four minutes ago.

    PAZZINI! The striker was picked out by Eto'o with a superb flick from the right wing, but Zaccardo was first to the ball.
  • 51'
    AMAURI! Candreva bombed down the flank and sent in a good cross from near the corner flag, but Cesar was first to the ball. Moments later Amauri wants a penalty after allegedly being brought down by Ranocchia in the box, but the referee does not think so.

    Pazzini with his first shot of the game after a good flick by Sneijder, but his finish is easily dealt with by Mirante.

    SubstitutionCristian Chivu Wesley Sneijder
  • 46'
    The second half begins ...
  • 45' + 1'
    The first half is over! Parma took the lead through Giovinco and have so far been the better team! Stankovic has been a one-man team, and has been the only one to seriously threaten Mirante.Inter will have to step up their game if they are to take anything from this game, especially with Milan leading against Sampdoria at San Siro.
  • 44'
    Kharja tries to latch on to a very good ball from Stankovic, but is outpaced by Lucarelli and Inter's foray is stifled again.
  • 42'
    Inter have been misplacing passes in dangerous zone and risk being hit badly on the counter. Candreva and Giovinco have the pace to hurt any team.
  • 40'
    Lucio tries to release Kharja with a wonderful looping pass, but it is a bit overhit and Mirante is first to the ball.
  • 38'
    Very bad defending from Ranocchia here. The centre-half was too hesitant to close down the ex-Juventus man and this proved costly in the end.
  • 36'
    GIOVINCO SCORES! The Atomic Ant scores ! Zaccardo sent a wonderful cross from the right wing for Modesto in the box, who in turn teed it up for Giovinco who sent an unstoppable low shot from near the penalty spot into the right corner.
  • 35'
    Assist Francesco Modesto
  • 35'
    Goal Sebastian Giovinco
  • 35'
    Nagatomo is lucky not to be sent off as he elbowed Modesto in the face on the left wing. A mistake by the referee here.
  • 33'
    Eto'o gives away the ball in a dangerous position, allowing Giovinco to thread a ball for Amauri, but his ball was cleared. The ex-Barcelona man seems to be injured.
  • 31'
    Stankovic has really been superb in the last two weeks. He has rolled back the years and brings us back to his glory days at Lazio with shots like these!
  • 29'
    Stankovic! GREAT SHOT! The Serbian found himself with the ball on the left, just outside the box, and sent a vicious shot for the right corner, but Mirante pulled off a stunning save!
  • 27'
    Cambiasso concedes a needless foul on Dzemaili after Giovinco and the Swiss international played a superb one-two. The ex-Real Madrid has not really been in his form of life of late.
  • 25'
    Eto'o tries his luck from range, but his finish flies way over the bar and into the stands!
  • 24'
    STUNNING FREE-KICK BY STANKOVIC! The Serbian international send in a vicious free-kick which rebound off the crossing of the bar and the right post! That would have been one hell of a goal.
  • 22'
    Eto'o is brought down by Morrone with a bodycheck after the Cameroon international tried to get past the Parma hardman.
  • 20'
    Inter are yet to create a meaningful attack. A pretty worrying sign for the Nerazzurri's fans, who are probably still upset about their team's exit from the Champions League.
  • 19'
    Yellow Card Andrea Ranocchia
  • 18'
    Kharja climbs on the back of Giovinco on the right side of the box as he tries to head away a cross. The ex-Juventus man is known for his fragile structure, but he did quite well to deal with the ex-Siena man's weight.
  • 16'
    Ranocchia concede a corner on the left ... Giovinco takes it ... Lucio rises the highest and heads away! Great play by the ex-Bayern Munich man.
  • 14'
    Parma have been the better team so far, and they exhibit great play in transition.
  • 12'
    Great play by Morrone! The midfielder was released on the right side of the box and superbly teed up the ball for Dzemaili who found the ball on the volley, but it flew over the bar!
  • 10'
    Inter win a corner kick on the right after a powerful Lucio shot. Nothing came off that set-piece.
  • 8'
    Amauri plays a one two with Candreva, and superbly dribbles past Nagatomo, but is dispossessed by Lucio in the end. The ex-Juventus strike has been reborn since his switch to Parma.
  • 6'
    Giovinco blasts his free-kick over the bar, but it seems the ball was deflected off the wall. The ex-Juvenuts man took the corner-kick on the left, Lucarelli went for bicycle kick, but failed miserably.
  • 5'
    Ranocchia! Very bad interception by the defender! Giovinco made his way past two players before finally going down to a ruthless tackle by Ranocchia just outside the box.
  • 3'
    Dzemaili tries to cross from the left wing, but he loses his footing ant the ball flies right into Julio Cesar's hands.
  • 1'
    The first half begins ...
