He was a bit lucky when Pandev hit the post with Inter's first real chance, but made some incredible stops on Stankovic and Eto'o in the second-half to deny the Nerazzurri.
The former Italy Under-21 centre-back arguably his best performance of the season for the team that discarded a fewa years back.
Tested Castellazzi with several long range efforts and took on men when he could. Ensured that inter had little time on the ball in midfielder as well. He looks to be a key player in Chievo's success this season.
Wasn't involved offensively, but kept his position well.
Got into a scuffling match with Eto'o and headbutt from the Cameroonian for his efforts, but you cannot fault most of his interceptions as he kept Eto'o mostly in check until injury time.
He went unpunished after coughing up possession in his own half to Zanetti early on. However, he put in an excellent cross for the opener and was otherwise attentive.
The 25-year-old had all the time in the world to set up the Flying Donkeys' second goal on the counter and also saved a Stankovic header off the line when it was 1-0. A very good display.
Taken out on 65 minutes after a fairly anonymous performance. Made no costly errors, but made no bright contributions either.
Th Switzerland international did plenty of running in midfield but missed a golden opportunity when it was 1-0 by shooting wide of an open net after Constant's rebound.
It wasn't the best display of the captain's career, but arguably one of the most important. He rose high above Santon to score the opener and was a real threat, even if spurned an opportunity or two.
Lively in attack, but often lacking the end product. Nonetheless his pace caused problems for the Inter backline.
He certainly can't be blamed for the first goal, and he wasn't the only culpable party on the second, but he's certainly not up to the level of Julio Cesar.
He failed to challenge Pellissier as he headed in the opener and had a few problems at full-back, he looks much better going forward then defending, but it was another poor performance in Maicon's absence.
A few uncharacteristic errors from the captain, whose best wasn't enough to drag his side out of their slump in Verona.
The only Inter player who had a decent game. The Brazilian was impecable at the back again for the struggling Serie A champions.
The Colombian veteran is not the player he once was and struggled with the pace of Constant, Thereau, and Pellissier during the course of the match.
A dreadful first-half from the Serbian who couldn't make a pass. He dramatically improved in the second half though, seemingly the only creative one on the pitch for his side and perhaps unlucky not to score.
The Ballon d'Or candidate tried to get his foot on the ball as much as possible, but couldn't find a telling pass and he only managed to test Sorrentino with a curling freekick.
Clearly the Argentine was not fully fit and it was no surprise when he was replaced early in the second-half on his comeback to the starting XI.
Where is the Goran Pandev of last season? This one is slow, slugglish, and simply not up to standard. He hit the post early on when he really should have scored.
He should have received a red card for a headbutt on Chievo's Bostjan Cesar and scored a fantastic solo goal, though it was only a consolation as his side fell to another loss.
The young Frenchman showed some good control in flashes, but he failed to get past his man on any occasion and was replaced in the second-half.

Added some steel to the midfield after coming onto the pitch in difficult weather conditions.
Thrown on to shore up the midfield as inter looked to get back into the contest.
Defined the term 'impact substitute' by delivering the knockout punch in the late stages of the match.

The youngster seemed nervous and made a few rookie errors after coming on for Cambiasso.
A late throw of the dice by Rafa Benitez, but had no chance to get into the game.
The starlet had one nice give-and-go with Eto'o and will be eager to get more chances on the pitch.
